Throughout the many years of our lives, each of us accumulates a series of diverse and rich experiences. Our natural inclination is to evaluate and simply reflect on what we have been through and even more importantly what we have learned. This introspective look within into what we can no longer see with our physical eyes or sense with our external senses allows us to hone in on the true inner self, our inner essence. This inner essence is what we seek to tap into and begin listening to based on the methods in "Inner Glow Up".
Numerous schools of thought teach about the concept of self-actualization. Which I have always defined simply as "realizing the actual self". This is our journey in life, the destination isn't to some idealized paradise or conceived of place but rather it is our journey home. It is the journey into the spacial quality of existence that initially brought us into this world. It is the journey of what is leading us through this life and therefore it is the journey back to where it all began. Like a an endless, perfect circle.
Many upon closer reflection could say that the infant and the elderly are more soul than body. As you and I develop our personality and thusly ego, it is then that we begin to think we are somebody. Ram Dass comically refers to this as "somebody training." As we begin to move into the phase of adulthood, we begin to think we are real and act on this "somebody" that we have trained. When we actually do mature, we go into a state that Ram Dass has also comically referred to as "nobody training".
The great paradox of life is that we spend a great deal of time learning to develop independence from infancy only to lose it again as we steadily age and then die. Our lives are a journey from innocence to supreme grace. The human expression is a journey with many ups and downs. What keeps us on track is the authentic call of our own soul, the aspect of self that has the blueprint for what we are to do in this life. The true blueprint and yearnings of the inner soul gives us strength to do the impossible and give us hope when there is none. Locating and discovering this inner guiding light was my individual journey, and to turn about and teach the method of uncovering that never failed me was part of my mission to serve others. That's why I wrote Inner Glow Up, and have begun adapting course materials to serve as a more personal approach to the same teachings.
The journey was not one of sunshine and endless light, as anyone on a spiritual awakening path can attest. All parts of the self, both dark and light, need to be embraced with equal measures of gentle scrutiny and unconditional love. This gentleness and firmness is the something inside us striving for the satisfaction and freedom found in perfecting our true nature and fitting ourselves to our truest purpose.. Our authentic and innermost self knows we are GROWING through life and simply going through life at the same time.
This delicate balance between these two forces of nature and understanding their polarities helps us to never get too caught up in the moment, yet paradoxically keeps us breathing and moving forward living perfectly in the now. This blend of knowing we are ourselves in this life, and yet also a broader larger energetic being who has had countless lives of which this is only one character on one stage and merely one vantage point enables us to stay on our path. Supreme cognizance and at the same time, supreme focus. It is the path best described as knowing who we are through the various experiences and expressions of our life; and the higher self's divine guidance meant only for this immediate and current expression is the one which we seek to understand and connect with through the methods described in Inner Glow Up. In doing this sacred work, we learn to trust in our own soul and find direction there...when direction in life is not present and sorely lacking. I wrote Inner Glow Up to act as an uncovering method to separate and sieve out anything in your energy field, in your life, and in your mindset that should keep you from hearing your true inner guidance.
