Connecting with the direct knowing of your existence is a doorway to knowing yourself; not as an idea, but through being with the simple sense of ‘I am’.
All ideas are surplus to who you are, they are added. You already ARE before any ideas you might have.
Finding yourself is about shedding all ideas about yourself and coming into what is already present, rather than trying to find ideas that fit best.
When we stop trying to figure out who we are by defining ourselves through our possessions, skills, looks, ideas of perfection or inadequacy, or whatever else we might identify with…life becomes so much nicer!
