What You Have & What You Do


You've just been introduced at a dinner party. Your name is stated and what you do is tagged on as well. So for example: 'This is John Doe. He practices law at his family firm in Atlanta', or: 'This is Jane Doe. She owns a marketing and PR firm here in Toronto'. Armed with that information, people are now able to add little labels to your name in their minds. And perhaps, if they get to know you a bit more in future, they may add more labels, such as married, two kids, gorgeous penthouse duplex."

These facts about others are a daily part of our lives, and we are all familiar with this type of thinking and conversing, but what we so often seem to forget - not only about those others, who now have labels in our minds - but also about ourselves, is the fact that we are simply not, in the words of Wayne Dyer, what we do and what we have.

Granted, we are beings who work and buy material goods, but we are so much more than that, and I fear we are losing sight more and more of the fact that those elements of our lives are much less important than what we are on the inside.

You've seen, I imagine, movies where the protagonist lives in a converted warehouse in some sector of a large city that is not yet fashionable. Hence, the drive to this warehouse is not in a glamorous section of town, nor is the building itself impressive. The elevator - if it can be called that - is more like a freight lift than an elevator, noisy, clunky and forbidding. And yet, once you step into the converted section of this warehouse that has been made into a living space, you are enchanted. It is simply magnificent, bright, full of light, expansive spaces, and filled with harmony.

Apply this analogy to what I wrote in the above paragraphs. You are not what you appear to be on the outside: young/old, rich/poor, important/not important, well-known/unknown, slim/overweight, etc., etc. You are, however, what you are on the inside. And that is precisely why I continually encourage readers to remember to remain aware in order to continually connect to this inner part of your self; the part that will not grow old, develop wrinkles, and perish, only to leave behind all that fame and wealth you have accumulated - the part that remains is your eternal self that goes on and on and this part exists inside of you now, as you sit in front of your computer, laptop, or mobile device and read this, as it will continue to exist the day you are laid in the ground. Doesn't it make sense to connect to that part of yourself now?

For much more about becoming aware of your inner self, and of connecting to that part of you that our culture places such little importance on, have a look at my book Rewiring the Soul: Finding the Possible Self (paperback or Kindle).
