The essence of a person is not the clothing she wears or the things he does. People who love them do not stop loving them when they change clothing or do other things. Your essence is not even your history, culture, race, or what you think and do. It is your soul. Gary Zukav
Walking my spiritual path shows me the folly of my thinking: that I can hold onto what does not belong to my soul and make progress. I wrote yesterday about putting more daylight between me and the beliefs and patterns of my human self. As I separate myself from these wrongheaded ways of looking at life and my place in the world, I cringe at the falseness of these ideas and ideals.
I used to think that I had to start within this wrongness and from there I could chip away at it until it fell away. Now I see that all I was doing was focussing on what I do not want, and energetically creating more of it. There is nothing in the human way of thinking and being that belongs to a spiritual being. Only the ego likes to think that is true, because the ego hates to be wrong, and it does everything it can to keep me going back to ways of being that do not work, do not create the life I am here to live, and do not belong to my soul.
