I know my Self when I share my Self. As I give my Self, I see my Source returned to me. All that is Whole, all that is Beauty, all that is Holy, reflects back to me in the Joy of Being, in the brilliance of Life, in the Unity of Self. I choose to share only the Self of Beauty, Wholeness, and Joy, that I may Know my Self as Beauty, Wholeness, and Joy.

Who am I?
Am I myself, or am I my Self? Or both? Or neither (in Oneness, how is there a self at all?)?
In Sanskrit, this query is expressed as “Ham So”. Am I? The response is “So Ham”, I Am. When consciousness is externalized (as myself [lower case s, externalizing as the personality], the vibration is Ham Sa. When it is internalized (my Self, focused on the Higher [Divine] Self), the same vibration is SoHam.
It’s the same vibration, just depends on the direction.
This means that myself and my Self are the same vibration. This is why I can know my Self when I share my Self–I am bringing the inner to the outer. But also, this would mean that as soon as I share my Self (that is, when I externalize it), it’s actually myself (personality). And that would mean that even my personality-self is my Self, the Divine Self, the Inner Self, the Self that is fully aware of itself as Wholeness, Beauty, Joy…
Life is just a process of giving/sharing the same stuff–Source, Love, Divine Substance. Once I give it–bring it from Inner to Outer, then I can see it, feel it, touch it, and experience it. And also, as soon as I do this, and interact with It via experience, It gives back to me.
This is why I would want only to give Beauty, Wholeness, and Joy. This is not only what I want to experience, but also what I want returned to me.
Here is a beautiful mantra that expresses this, “Hamsa. So Ham. Ekam.” “Am I? I Am. ONE. “
