Last week in this space I said that self-creation is a Holy Experience. It is sacred. It is you, deciding Who You Are. Then I asked: What do you think of yourself in the morning? First thing in the morning, what is your idea about yourself? How about the last thing at night? What is your final assessment of Self just before falling asleep?
The Holy Experience with the Self is the living of the highest decision you have made about yourself. The beginning of that experience is the making of that decision. Who do you think you are, anyway? Do you think you are a scoundrel? Do you think you are a trustworthy person?
Do you think you are a teller of truth, always? Do you think you are a less than consistently truthful person, who slips and slides around the truth just a little in order to get through the moment? Do you think you are a person of integrity, who never cheats? Do you think you are a person who will cheat a little on others if it gets you something you want?
Who do you think you are, anyway?
Do you think you are a person of patience? Do you think you are a person of compassion? Do you think you are a person who easily becomes impatient, and then snaps at others? Do you think you are a warm and humorous and loving person? Do you think you are a person who instantly brightens up whatever room you enter?
Do you think you are who you were yesterday, or who you choose to be right now? Do you think you are a product of your ideas, or of the ideas of others? Do you think you are doomed to repeat old behaviors, or designed to create new ones?
Who do you think you are?
Are you a person who becomes annoyed easily, or are you easy-going? Are you a person who laughs easily and lustily, or who grins quietly and holds most of the joy in?
Are you a person of quick generosity, who does not think twice about giving away money, allowing the use of your possessions, and extending your home and your time and your love to others, or are you a person who is a bit more circumspect, a bit more cautious, in these matters?
Are you the person you wish you were?
Let's continue to look at this as our exploration of The Holy Experience proceeds in this space next week.
