What You Are Is Enough

Posted by Phillip Gordon on Tuesday, February 2, 2010
I have been spending many years exploring one idea.  Which is quite simply, what we are, is already what we need, all of it.  What is required is to shift our relationship with it, rather than shift it.  This life is not about becoming a different person from who we already are it is about inhabiting who you are completely.  I am far from being masterful with this principle, I slosh around the planet loosing my way, falling over my own heals time and time again.  Yet regardless of that, for this is my point, each fall, each moment contributes to my life.  Those experiences add to my awareness rather than detract from it.  The fact that I fall so and stumble is something that I do; it is a gift, an attribute that serves me when I let it. 

The people who I regard as successful do not change themselves, they may shift their ideas about, bring to the front aspects of their natures that contribute to their lives in a more satisfying way.  Yet they are fundamentally who they are throughout all the experiences and deeds they participate in. 

We are inhabited by many characters within our personalities, within our depths, each a representation of something that is valuable to us.  If we disregard any one of them, if we discard them on the heap, we are tossing away ourselves, and more than often it would seem for a lofty idea that separates us from a real and unique experience, which belongs to us, alone.  To live in harmony and at peace requires an understanding and acceptance of each of these characters, for every single voice has something to express.  We are in conflict with ourselves when we pit aspects of our nature up against other aspects.  We describe the conflict in our lives, we separate ourselves from ourselves, compartmentalising like a supermarket. 

All humanity is basically the same, the subtleties and nuances of a culture or people are expressions still bound by the same needs and desires as the person next door.  To come to an understanding, or at the least ask the question, as to what we are as beings, what makes us so, will provide a platform in understanding your self.   As you allow an appreciation of your particular qualities both obvious and hidden, you begin to place in your hands the qualities, natural skills and values that bring you out of yourself and into the world.
