Re-member the power of our free nature, that of body and soul.
« Our écological crisis is, at its root, a spiritual crisis. We have forgotten that we are not master of the world but, rather, participants in a greater whole. Real earth stewardship begins the moments we awaken to the truth of our cosmic relationship to all that is » – Raymond Cathalo
The process of self-realization is about acquiring self-knowledge and a complete understanding of who we are and the reality of the universe. Correct knowledge of oneself and the universe leads to the dissolution of all dualistic patterns. It leads to liberation, freedom and unconditional love. Self-realization is this knowledge and experience of the true self, beyond illusion and identification with material phenomena, personality, emotional and mental identification. It is the identity of a Self which is not limited to personality; which is interdependent and emerging from any phenomenon.
Self-realization frees us from being in the grip of our own desires and attachments. It frees us from external pressures, such as cultural and social expectations, or political and economic influences. It denotes a state in which we know who we really are and we are accomplished in this understanding. The gifts of self-realization are the realization and manifestation of who we are at the source in a state of fluidity, abundance of simplicity and love. We get a new vision and understanding that brings us greater, continuous and stable happiness. We understand our talents, our raison d’être, and we become mature with what we offer to the world and to all of our relationships. We connect with our ancestors, our lineage, all beings and the universe so as to understand that we are not separated by time, space, color, race or our history, that we are no different each other and at the same time, we are all unique and all have a place in this great experience of life.
Self-realization offers a deep inner peace, a release from fears and anxieties. It offers more authentic and nourishing relationships with oneself, others and nature. This achievement allows us to develop an equanimity to all circumstances and the ability to feel good in any environment and situation. It offers joy in contemplating the nature of reality and a greater sense of humor. Self-realization gives us confidence in life and in global consciousness.
