We claim who we are, the essence of our Self, established in and by Love. Our Self shines with the strength, beauty and power of its essence, Love. As we open to our Self, accept our Self, and Love our Self, the Life of Unity infuses all activity and transforms our consciousness. Life as our Self renews our Joy and restores our trust in Life itself.
There was a glitch in the SusanMechanism yesterday, and this did not get posted, but it was done…. Dang those naps that make you forget what you’re “supposed to be doing”!
Do you know about Heraclitus’ river? Heraclitus was an ancient philosopher known for the saying, “A man never steps into the same river twice.” I just love thinking about this phrase, while thinking about the flow of being and the essence of my Self. One (my Self) is changeless and eternal, the other, (the flow of being) carries that essence through time and experiences.
This means that I am constantly experiencing the flow of being in new and different ways; I am experiencing my Self in new and different ways. It can appear that “I” am changing, but in fact, my essence does not change, only my experience of it does–There is different water with different molecules, different atoms every time “I” step into the river.
The body which houses the “I’ is different each time; cells have died and others have replaced them; the mental approach is different each time. What thoughts this time? What thoughts last time? The air is different, the breath is different. The relationship between all the stars is different, including the sun. Nothing is the same. Everything changes. Yet my essence remains.
The more I allow the flow of my essence through time and experiences, and the more I allow myself to experience through my essence, the more attuned I become to my infinite and eternal nature. My consciousness which experiences transforms to become One with my eternal essence.
