When one gives serious though to the statement, we must admit that we've resorted to the BIG LIE more often than we'd like to admit. When we get mad because we feel that we've been wronged or hurt without cause or provocation, we, we simply say, "It's just the way I am". We use the excuse that we do some of the thing we do (collectively) because that's just the way we are.
There's so many LIES that we tell ourselves that's the truth. And it isn't so!
When we're jealous and we lose control, it's because that's the way we are. When emotions take over and we feel justified in any behavior, it's because that's the way I am. Who told you? Who has told us that we ARE as we believe we ARE? Who told Adam and Eve that they were NAKED? Who?
What conclusions have we come to that aren't true? Can we know?
Have we simply "learned" to BE who we think we are? The voice of leanred knowledge says, "That's the way I am". It's the voice of the liar who has historically lived in the tree of good and evil. The consciousness is a false egoic created one that knows the feelings of anger, fear, hatred, prejudice, intolerance, and separation.
In the movie, "A Beautiful Mind", Russell Crowe has his life nearfly destroyed by "voices" that become illusions that he sees. A trio of people constantly talk with him, whisper in his ear the lies that he begins to believe and allow his life to spiral out of control. If we believe the voice in our head and not the inner voice of our Spirit, we will never be able to be who we are, who I AM!
Do you KNOW who you ARE?
As a spiritual-futurist my commentaries and articles deal primarily with an interpretation of current events in light of macro-universal forces at play.
