A few years ago my spiritual teacher presented these questions to us during an early morning meditation. I remember the clarity and hope the solutions offered. Today, as life offers more opportunity and a huge field of possibility, I see the relevance of these teachings. Our shadow sides, moments of doubt, turmoil, or grief offer motivation to move forward. In the moment, having a technique is a saving grace. From that new point of understanding and better feeling thoughts, the cosmos offers more of the same. The better it gets the better it gets. Enjoy the process.
Without further ado here they are – use them often.
- What about me?
The solution is the mantra – I am I am
"You are not what you take yourself to be. Find out what you are. Watch the sense 'I am', find your real Self." Hold on to the sense 'I am' tenaciously and in the stillness of your mind – see yourself as you truly are – unbound. Everything after “I am” creates.
- Am I in control?
The Universe is within you. Everything that you need and want and hope for is within you already. Look within and find your essence. Control your mind, not other people.
3. Am I secure?
The solution – GOD is your security. GOD is an acronym for the Generating Organizing Delivering mechanism in the Universe. When you remember GOD – you remember the totality from which we come, that we are connected to and how we connect to each other.
