Self-inquiry is not about shedding one identity for another but dropping the heavy ideas we may carry around and present to the world. But then…. what do I know? 😄 Enjoy!
See yourself not as a messenger
but as the message,
and not reactions
Think of yourself not as a teacher
but as a student,
as they appear
in the classroom
of the world
Look on yourself not as a Guru
but as the very light
the Guru’s pointings,
for those who feel lost
Consider yourself not as one who knows
but as one who knows nothing,
one who discovers Truth
fresh and new,
only ever here and now,
all possibilities allowed
Know yourself not as a person
but as an actor in this divine play,
capable of playing any role in this
comedic, romantic, tragic adventure,
no lines to memorize in this improv,
grateful for the gift of experience
Understand yourself not as an ‘other’
but as all others
different vantage points
of only one shared being,

Love this! Right to the point,…… wonderful to read and contemplate, however not easy to put into practice!
“no lines to memorize in this improv,”. This thought made me smile. Takes all the pressure off. Be your self. What do they say in improv? ” Yes, and….” The yes being the radical acceptance of what is appearing.
Thanks again, Walter
Yes, and…. Thank-you Diane, It’s nice to be on stage with you 🙂🙏
Solitary “brightness” gives strength to be alone and to be together. And ‘this’ becomes oh!, so entertaining. 🎭📷📿🖌✒️🌬 What is this?
What indeed! 😁
