  1. Hi Raam, I have been doing some writing on our God self. Here are a few of my thoughts;

    Letting your God self out to play

    I just learned the other day that when you get in touch with your God self and let her out to play, you also release the God selves of the people in your world. I always thought this was a great and wonderful experience filled with joy. So I could never understand why almost everyone is very reluctant to let their God self come to the surface. The answer, of course, is because as the God self rises to the surface, She takes control away from the intellect and ego and shines Her light of truth into the dark places of the personality and exposes the ego and intellect as usurpers to the thrown of the kingdom of God.

    So this explains why there is so much fear and pain as you let your God self come out to play. Most people are very attached to their ego and intellect and when I meet someone or even write my blogs, people can feel the stirring of their God self crossing the lines that their ego and intellect have worked so hard all their lives to lay down. And so the un-spoken and un-written agreement is, “Let’s not disturb our God selves.” But I find that once the God self is out of the bag, it’s impossible to stuff Her back in again.

    And I find the longer she stays on the surface, the stronger She becomes and the more the little egos and intellects of the world become afraid of Her. I guess, dear friends, this is just part of our evolving nature. The cry of the ego is might is right and the cry of the intellect is the smart should dominate the stupid. But it’s in among the weak and stupid that this God self is most likely to be brought forth into this world.

    • Thank you Suzy,

      What you have described is exactly my experience of finding God. It is an often painful and frightening experience punctuated by a growing peaceful and solid happiness. I think I missed it for a long time because I always thought it would be this happy, clappy, hallaluah experience.

    • The strength you speak of is, I think, the same power and potential for success that is so easily feared. We have within us unlimited potential and yet we cage it inside, afraid to use it. It becomes easier to feel pity for ourselves and complain, to search for other people to lead us, and to find external Gods to worship.

      Everything we need is right here, within us. We must look inward and see that we are a temple, that we are the seat of unlimited potential.

      Thank you for sharing that, Suzzy. 🙂

  2. Hi Raam,
    I read your note as I am sitting in an airport. I am crossing the world because a very close friend had a serious stroke and I desire to be present to share with him my time.

    I appreciate your words that mirror for me what Marianne Williamson meant when she said (I am paraphrasing from memory) ‘we do the world no favors by hiding our light in the shade.”

    The truth is when we let ourselves shine even ones life is make brighter.

    All the best to you,

    David
