Everybody’s Full of It

‘Everybody’ is ‘full of it’…  Though the “IT” may be seen as different by everyone, because each of us sees ourselves as a unique individual – “special” in our own minds.  But, we really are all the same.  We all go through basically the same shit – maybe to different degrees, but essentially the same.  I see this especially when I read other people’s blogs and watch other’s vlogs.  I’m amazed that, even though we can live on different continents, everyone goes through the same kind of crap over the course of their lives – with jobs, relationships, family, etc. – with the primary differences in our experiences being related to, or the result of, how much money we earn, have, or don’t have…

But, what is “it” that we’re full of?  For the most part, it’s Ourselves – in the form of Opinions, Beliefs, Thoughts, Feelings, Emotions, Fears and, Knowledge and Information.  This is how we define ourselves as who we are.

Like everyone else, I existed as nothing more than the manifestation of my own opinion of myself for years.  Think about that for a moment.  Where do opinions come from?  From the first moment we start remembering and creating associations within our memories, we form opinions.  A picture image of every single event in our lives is stored within our minds as a memory.  And, within each memory, we’ve associated a  learned/taught/observed behavior and/or reaction.  The process is the same in the formation of our beliefs, feelings, emotions and fears.  Then, we attach one, or all, of those to the memory, based on how we experienced ourselves within the event, and we form an opinion of that experience, and each opinion becomes part of our self definition – who we ‘think’ we are…   And the mind presents these memories to us in the form of thoughts throughout every moment of our lives, so we can interpret each current moment, based on the opinions, beliefs, feelings and emotions of past moments, and incorporate the current experience into our self-definition.  The thing is:  NONE of those are REAL.  Opinions, beliefs, thoughts, feelings and, emotions ONLY exist in our mind.  Throw knowledge and information into the mix, and we complicate things even more for ourselves.  All of this crap is floating around in our mind and, we ‘believe’ that’s ‘who we are’.  We’re actually existing/living in our past.  We base our experience of the current moment, as well as projecting our experience of future moments, on our knowledge and information and our opinions of past experiences.  So, everyone truly is ‘full of it’…

I’ve been ‘full of it’ all my life.  But, thanks to the tools and assistance I was fortunate to come across at Desteni.co.za, through self-honesty and self-forgiveness, I’ve begun to deconstruct these illusions of the mind.  I still have a long way to go.  I still exist as knowledge and information.  I ‘know’ that there is only one solution for this existence we call ‘life’ – the solution to ALL of the world’s problems – EVERYONE’s – yours, mine – every, single, living being on the face of this earth.  And, that solution is Equality – the simple message that Jesus was killed for teaching and preaching about.  He knew the answer and he shared it in two simple rules:  Do unto another as you would have them do unto you; and, Love your neighbor as yourself.  That’s it.  That’s all we need to live by.  That is the message of Equality.

Am I there, yet?  Nope.  But I’m in the process of getting there.  And, let me tell you, it’s not a ‘simple’ process.  Facing your self, and all of ‘it’ that you’re ‘full of’ is no simple task.  Knowing something is one thing but, ‘living’ it is another.  Becoming equal and one with equality takes self discipline.  Being truly self-honest with yourself, and forgiving yourself for accepting and allowing yourself to exist and participate within and as opinions, beliefs, thoughts, feelings, emotions and knowledge and information and learning to exist in the present moment in breath awareness isn’t easy – especially since I have over 56 years of ‘it’ accumulated.  But, it’ll be worth it…
