Nothing Less
by Dj Brown

Sojourner, long traveled down the path of life glanced down at the path and saw a small nested stone inside another. Somehow broken, not quite in half, an inner stone was shown whole and the outside stone cradled around half the hidden treasure inside. Bending to pick up the rock, a question arose with it. Many years have gone by since that day. The stone has been carried a multitude of places where many hands have touched and admired it. Now in this moment a master of truth has reached out and spoken of the question which arose with the stone… the secret of Self.

You were born and the Universal Consciousness shivered in recognition and delight. You are the whole of the universe, galaxies and stars. You are light of day and dark of night. The winds of time were born to fill your lungs. To quell your thirst; the waters of the world were created. The rain fell from the sky. The whole lot of everything is you. Under the cloak of body, you are everything… yes everything. Your birth was written in the Book of Ages. Your age is yours alone to share as you may. As you expand Self, so too, shall you expand the cause of your birth… love.

The moment the mist cleared and your eyes saw, you were enchanted with life. Your ears heard your own cry of joy and you recognized yourself. You kicked your arms and legs and found your strength. You were cradled and fed… you felt love. The moment each of these things happened, you became more and more acquainted with the precious vessel of your human body. In these moments your body, mind and spirit merged. They joined in the mystical creation of a Spirit having a human experience.

The master whispered. "You are the cup of life. Filled, emptied, filled and emptied over and over again. You are the cup half full and the cup drained, the hand who fills it and the hand that accepts it. You are the one who blesses it and the one blessed by it. Self and Spirit… Spirit and Self.

Only in Self will you find the humility to take and receive without regret or motive. Intentional thoughts and actions create, change and make a difference. Choices between a healthy life and world or a polluted, abused world and life, for remember you are one and the same. The respect and honour you hold as your esteem is how you will see, feel and build your worldly age. Think not that one being, one thought, one action won't shift the pendulum. It will. Build your time and worldly age from the foundation up.

Remember you are the sun, moon, stars. You are the water, air, earth. You fly on the wings of feathered companions. Choose with your heart what is right. It knows. It will not fail you. Walk peacefully and gently upon Earth Mother for She trusts and needs your loving care. Reach out to others. They are life's gift sharing the same undertaking to find, gather and nourish love. Be not at war with yourself or others; you are one and the same in the Universal Consciousness.

Self is a personal life long journey. Love born, cultivated, gathered, given away, and lived is your purpose. Remember you are cherished and loved for who you are, for all you do. You are esteemed for your efforts and failures. You are the salt of the earth and the earth from which the salt comes. Remember dear one, this above all else. You are love and loved. Self is much like this stone… you can see, feel and understand part of yourself. However, the hidden Self is the part of you which is a marvelous mystery.

Accept yourself as the starting point. Your destination and all else in between will become clear. Transformative moments of enlightenment grow exponentially in relationship with your efforts to know the world through the enlightened Self. Now is the time to approach your hidden Self with a sense of wonder. Look to the journey within - for it is where you will find the adventures of a lifetime. Self is your centre. To centre and balance your life—to Self—you must return again and again until you can maintain being centred. This is your challenge in life.

Wonder not if you are moving in the right direction for there is only one way to Self. Worry not for what you shall find in the mystical answers you seek. You were born of the Beloved Breath of Life. Beloved Breath of Life you are for you are Self… nothing less. This dear one is your gift, 'seek and you will find' love and be loved."

I am what I am, until I am not… then I am. namaste'
