Know Thyself – Self-Realization is the Greatest Service YOU CAN GIVE to the World
By: Gary Lite
The Year is 2018, in this period of time, a rapidly rising collective consciousness is settling in our society. No matter what country you are in, or whatever city you are from in the world, people are starting to wake up to the real problems that the world faces today. Correcting the mistakes of the past present and future.
We call it “The Truther Community” People who will stop at nothing to get the truth.
This is a major task in itself, with so much division in the world, it is very hard to distinguish truth from deception.
According to some estimates, there are roughly 4,200 religions in the world. That means around 4,200 religious groups organized by hue-mans that are just like you and me, that think they know something about our past and way of life that we don’t.
Now I don’t know about you, but this fact in itself tells me something very important that we should all know. The way I see it, that means around 4,199 religious groups are possibly incorrect, or maybe there is scattered pieces of information in certain key religions, that those with the eyes to see and ears to hear will put together themselves.
I personally believe in a creator. It is impossible for life itself, planets, stars, and the universe to be created from a “Big Bang Theory”. And that’s all it is… a Theory. The Hue-Man body and any living being on this planet has so many amazing capabilities, that could not just form into itself by accident.
A very traditional way of looking at it, is that there is a God, or Gods that created us, and this world is the school of hard knocks. A phrase meaning (sometimes painful) education one gets from life, usually negative experiences, often turns out to be a very important life experience.
A more modern way of looking at it would be that we live inside some kind of Matrix, or trapped in some type of game of life, with a puppet master pulling the strings from behind the curtain or vail.
“I am learning to understand rather than immediately judge or to be judged. I cannot blindly follow the crowd and accept their approach. I will not allow myself to indulge in the usual manipulating game of role creation.
Fortunately for me, my self-knowledge has transcended that and I have come to understand that life is best to be lived and not to be conceptualized.
I am happy because I am growing daily and I am honestly not knowing where the limit lies. To be certain, every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.”
― Bruce Lee
A perfect quote for the way I feel from one of my favorite people who ever lived.
I believe that most people really don’t know the truth, and to find that truth you have to look within yourself, and there shall you find the answer to your true purpose in life.
In fact, the more I study and learn about ancient cultures and religions, the more I realize that it would literally take me lifetimes to learn about everything I need to know, and not everyone in the world is privileged to have this information available to them.
So, what about the people that live in extreme poverty, or 3rd world countries that are starving with no money or food to eat? How are they suppose to learn the truth about what religion is correct in their teachings? Is it possible that life is but a dream, and all the others are just playing their part in my own private life experience? I honestly don’t know!
What I do believe, is that I learn something new everyday, and the most valuable experiences are those I learn in my everyday life, my interactions with the people, animals, and all of nature around me.
My ability to set an example to those around me who look and seem clueless to the real reality of life. The ones who still sleep and are ignorant to other’s feelings and consequences. Or the know it all’s that preach something that they really don’t know much about at all.
I learned to treat others the way I would like to be treated, and really put yourself in their shoes to see how you would feel if someone did that to you.
The truth is, the more I really pay attention to my actions, the more I see room for improvement. I don’t think it’s far to put the blame on others who don’t know right from wrong. Maybe they themselves or their parents didn’t know any better from the ways and times that they were brought up.
Releasing negative energy from the past and forgiveness is crucial to moving forward in our society. I believe that all of us united, regardless of your skin colour or religion is the Key to our civilization moving forward into the future and in the Now moment.
Love holds the power to all happiness and has the ability to unite everyone together, so that our planet, and we as the Hue-Man race will thrive and survive into our future.
“Your own Self-Realization is the greatest service you can give to the world.”
“The first thing you have to know is yourself. A man who knows himself can step outside himself and watch his own reactions like an observer.”
– Adam Smith
I think to really know yourself means to take control of who you are and what you want out of life. That means if you don’t feel good about yourself, then do something about it.
If you feel like you want a better life, then you have to adjust and create the life that you desire. No one will do it for you, it is there waiting for you, when you wake up to your true inner calling and strength.
I was raised by only my mother here in Canada, she immigrated from Portugal when very young and was married at 16 years old with my father.
They got divorced when I was 3, and after he left, we didn’t have much at all, throughout most of our lives. I think one of the reasons is that we didn’t ask for much, and we would pray for just enough to get by.
Now I realized, that was a modest mistake!
I learned from the late great Louise Hay, that the universe is abundant, and so is this planet. You have to ask for what it is you really want and focus on that until it is manifested into your own reality.
Write it down everyday, put a picture of whatever it is you want on the wall. Take a few minutes out of your day to close your eyes and visualize whatever it is you want out of life.
It’s not going to happen overnight, but like planting a seed in soil, you can watch it grow.
The Universe is not punishing you.
It is not blessing you.
It is not controlling you.
The Universe responds to the vibration you are creating. Think happy and happiness will come to you. Think negatively, and negativity will come to you.
What we put into the Universe, we will get back like an echo.
Take control of who you are.
Live with no regrets.
Think twice before you say or do something you might regret.
Forgive yourself and others and move on.
Life is to short.
Enjoy, Be Free, and Live in the Now Moment!
Be the change that the world needs.
“When one has reached maturity in the art, one will have a formless form. It is like ice dissolving in water. When one has no form, one can be all forms; when one has no style, he can fit in with any style.”
