Today I have been considering and exploring how I view the self .
I have been entertaining the idea/ metaphor/ symbolism of the tree as the self-
The world tree- as within , so without. Microcosm /macrocosm
The roots - the stability , the foundation . Balance
The trunk , where creative energies and chi force travel to and from.
The core - solar plexus , center of the self , Core of the self. home of the sun
The branches - The throat - the expression and outward manifestation of creative energy . the process of doing
The fruit- product of imagination , original ideas. the manifested
The self , the individual , is a world unto itself .
No need for needy giving and taking , just respectful and joyful sharing in the spirit of symbiosis and choice.
The sweet elixir of life is to be found at the core of the self- or maybe just below in the dantien ? The fuel of the energy body
The spiritual journey - the journey home - is the return to our own core , our own source.
We cannot access our own source via other people , not by books, or other healers and teachers, or knowledge, or more information.
Other people , politicians , leaders, gurus , gods , partners , children etc etc may be a huge blessing in our lives and certainly can help us on our path , but one cannot access source via another .
This process - the journey of coming home cannot be understood intellectually or know by the mind. It is a living experience and can only be known by doing it for ourselves.
" Teaching is only demonstrating it is possible, learning is making it possible for yourself "
The true self isn't an identity, it cannot be defined- words are only pointers towards it
I am not saying anything new or original here - but the combination of words may be a good pointer , or open a door for some.

Acceptance and responsibility for all choices and lack of choices
Love and light is all very well and good but we'd not grow and learn without the darkness ...balance of both = wholeness and oneness - oneness is not one sided

This doesn't mean being self centered it points to recognizing that you/I are central to your/my own life.
Some will try and control and strive for power over others. This happens subtly in everyday relationships, families, work and on the bigger global scale. Those who need to control and dominate others have little or no mastery over themselves unfortunately.
Bless all the humans today ( including myself) who struggle with self acceptance and self trust , and a prayer sent out into the universe that all human beings have the courage to begin their journey back home to themselves and become the stars in their own lives

Personal empowerment is, above all else, the most important thing for a healthy society to thrive.
THEN shared power within the community for the greater good working together we become a positive force for growth , change and evolution.
We can the decide to trade and move about to other communities with respect and gratitude for all
My opinion...no need for a central government with ultimate power over a country and definitely no need for a central world government, who' s power hungry leaders will dominate and control the masses
I voted IN ( EU referendum) , but not with any conviction and YET I wasn't displeased to see an OUT result either. For me, this is an opportunity for us all to take back our power and potentially stop any movement towards a EU super state and eventually one world state.
A EU super state or ONE world state IS NOT unity among the people it is a way to CONTROL the people....!
This is my current opinion which is always open to change , evolution and growth.

I have many many questions, but very few answers ( luckily the few answers answer most questions ultimately)
But my point is...it's OK not to have an answer!
Of course the mind hates this. The mind hates uncertainty, of not knowing . It can't be comfortable unless it has a solution!
Sit with this discomfort , allow it ..smile at the mind ...squirming and wrestling for the "right" answer , for it all to make "sense"
It will pass ...and we can be comfortable without an answer , then comes peace and a true knowing that the answer didn't matter at all ...the question was enough ..
And maybe one day , as you are going about your daily businesses and forgotten all about the question... the answer will appear , plain as day! smile ...,ah ha ! ..but it doesn't matter !
