See yourself as Presence

When your own wounds are truly healed, you’ll be less reactive to the unconscious behavior of others.

“As we relentlessly observe ourselves, the images we have of who we are and who we need to be – which at one time seemed so real – begin to peel away like layers of an onion. Pleasant self-images may give way to uglier ones, each seeming equally real until that layer too peels away. As every illusory idea of who we are is stripped off, we can finally experience the quivering freedom of not needing to be anyone at all.” 
~Ezra Bayda~ 

Through the process of awakening, we come to recognize our wounds and understand what triggers our own reactivity. From this space of awareness, challenging people and situations are transformed into empowerment. As you walk consciously through the world, you’ll discover greater peace and compassion. When you witness others caught in their self-made distress, instead of joining them there, you’ll bring a sense of calmness and purpose to the present moment.

Rather than seeing yourself as a student, healer, teacher or someone who is enlightened, see yourself as Presence – the nameless, formless, infinite source of being. You are far more than the roles you play in this life. You ARE life, an ever-expending expression of the love, light and laughter of the universe.
