I have forgotten my Self.
I have forgotten who I am.
I have forgotten that I am established in Love and by Love, which is infinite and eternal; therefore, my worth is infinite and eternal.
I seek to remember my Self. I choose to remember my Self.
I choose to remember who I am and my infinite worth in Love.
I choose to be aware, to understand, and to Know myself (my Self) as the Love I am.
I choose to share who I am with the world, giving my infinite worth, measured in infinite Love.
At first, I thought, “Is this True? Have I forgotten?” Then, as I read, and felt a sensation in my forehead that spread out and down my arms, I thought, “Oh, yes… I have forgotten!” It was not, however, like I was now remembering. It was more like knowing I could remember—being reminded—but not fully remembering.
Something like this happens with friends sometimes. They’ll say “you remember, I told you about that…” and I’ll say, “Tell me again.” So they tell me again, and I’ll say, “I have a vague recollection of you telling me before.”
That’s what it was like to remember my Self—a vague recollection of a story someone told me once.
So, when I got to the part in the guiding thought about choosing, I knew those points to be choices I want in earnest. I really do want to remember my identity as love. As only love. As infinite and eternal. It’s nice to know I am sincere.
Then I had another thought that was less-well formulated. Again, it was a “vague sense” but here are the pieces:
I think a lot about being Truly helpful.
I think a lot about harmlessness and “do no harm”.
In general, I do a pretty good job, I think, being Truly helpful and doing no harm.
Through this guiding thought, I saw harm on a whole new level…here ‘goes:
IF I am only Love
IF Love is infinite and eternal
Everyone is only Love, infinite and eternal.
So far so good.
IF I see myself as not-Love (or less than Love) in any way, then the conclusion is everyone is not-Love, or less than Love.
IF I see anyone as not-Love, then I see everyone as not-Love, including myself.
IF I see anyone as not-Love, I have diminished their identity (denied their Truth) in my eyes.
IF I see anyone as not-Love, I have diminished my own identity (denied my own Truth) in my eyes.
Therefore, seeing someone, anyone, as less than the Truth of who they are, is not Truly helpful.
Therefore, seeing someone, anyone, as less than the Truth of who they are, is doing harm, by not affirming the truth of who they are.
Therefore, seeing myself, as less than the Truth of who I am, is not Truly helpful.
Therefore, seeing myself, as less than the Truth of who I am, is doing harm by not affirming the truth of who I am.
Now, there is even more reason to realize the Truth of who we are at every turn, with every breath: do no harm; be truly helpful: deeper, wider, higher– Know your Self!
