What I am (as opposed to “Who”)
Eckhart Tolle and so many others in the New Thought movement speak of knowing our personal identity as what we are rather than who we are, and in so doing stepping away from and above our egos. In my meditation today I came to realize that I am beginning to identify spiritual role models for what I am in this world. No doubt these will evolve, but at the moment, they seem to be Jesus of Nazareth (40%), Mahatma Ghandi (40%), and Buckminster Fuller (20%) for these reasons:
Jesus For the total incorporation of the power and presence of Spirit in the sensory world.
Ghandi For the commitment to demonstrating the ability of one to change the world.
Bucky For the amazing willingness to be open to any and all ideas, and then to act on many of those ideas.
What about you? Do you see yourself as who you are, or what you are? Either way, who are you using as role models?
