From Rev. Arlene

Who are you?

To many, the answer to this question, may seem easy.  If asked who they are, they would give their identity based on their job, their marital or parental status, or their religion, nationality, ethnicity or sexual identity.  We often confuse who we are by what we do, where we come from, or our role in life.

This is all well and good but what happens when, what we identify with, changes?  When we lose our job, when our children move away, when we change our marital status or move to another county we can become confused and frightened because all of a sudden what we were is no longer what we are.

When we understand, however, that in Truth, we are much more than our physical identity, when we are not defined by our jobs or relationships, we can handle any changes in our life.  When we know we are part of the Universe and that we are so much more than our job, no matter what changes happen in our lives, we adapt, we move on, we grow and we evolve.

Try answering the question – who am I without using labels.  Try going within and asking the question instead, who was I created to be?

Quote of the Week

What a liberation to realize that the ‘voice in my head’ is not who I am. ‘Who am I, then?’ The one who sees that.                                                                Eckhart Tolle
