Michael Beckwith – You Are Not Your Body & You Are Not Your Mind
This speech from Michael Beckwith holds so much truth and power, we had to share it. Enjoy and let us know what you got from it in the comments below 🙂
How can I evolve
when everything seems to
be dissolving right in front of me?
How can I make it
through the night?
How can I have what I need?
How can I grow more in prosperity?
How can I achieve the level of
well being and health for the harmony
and wholeness in my life
when it seems as though everything is topsy-turvy?
And something within you knows
that there are answers of those
basic, but yet profound questions.
Something within you knows
that within you is the answer.
Something within you knows
that if you keep on asking the right question,
if you keep on digging, if you keep on searching,
you will eventually bump into the answer
and ultimately you will discover it and
that it’s with you all of the time.
Ultimately, you will begin
to discover who you are.
In this moment you can think
independent of any circumstances
going on in your life.
Right this moment, as you’re sitting here
listening to me there may be
some issue that you’re seeking to solve.
There may be some problem
you’re trying to overcome.
There may be some sense of discomfort
that you’re trying to free yourself from.
And as you’re sitting here and listening to me right now
you’re thinking independent of that experience.
And that means you are
exercising the faculty
that you have with the universal presence
to think independent of any issue
that’s going on and enter into a co-creative
relationship with this presence
and ultimately change your life.
So in substance, what I’m saying
that you’re not the body,
you have a body.
You’re not the mind,
you have a mind.
That you are an avenue of awareness
that is conscious of the body.
You are an avenue of awareness
that is conscious of the mind.
And as you begin to expand your awareness
as to who and what you really are,
you get to make CHOICES that
liberate you from limitation
liberate you from disease
liberate you from discomfort
liberate you from poverty and lack and limitation.
is actually a function of
And as you begin to have
certain practices in your life,
certain heart-sets and mind-sets,
you will begin to make the great discovery
that all the power and presence and love,
prosperity, abundance, joy,
spontaneous goodness, happiness…
All the things that seem so fleeting,
that seem to be outside of yourself,
just outside of your grasp…
You will begin to discover
that they are deep within you
waiting to escape.
That you’re not here to GET them,
That you are here to LET them.
You’re not here to GET IT,
you’re here to LET IT FLOW
by making high choices
from an expanded awareness
as to who and what you really are.
You no longer need to be a victim to circumstance
You no longer need to be a victim to the past
You no longer have to be a victim to a future in which you are projecting negativity
You no longer have to be a victim to anything that anyone has ever said about you
You no longer have to be a victim to the things that you’ve said about yourself
You no longer have to be a victim to anything
that through your expanded awareness
of this dynamic and magnificent presence,
through the expanded awareness,
you get to make a choice.
You get to make a choice to become MORE yourself
and anchor on earth
in time and space, the eternal qualities
of love and of beauty and of well being.
You’re not the constellation of
that are forged into being
based on circumstances in your life.
But who YOU are
is a unique emanation of something
so wonderful and so magnificent,
that by means of you wants
to come into expression.
Wants to reveal itself.
And these transcendent yet eminent
qualities that we call love
and that we call beauty.
and that we call harmonizing prosperity
and that we call abundance
and that we call living intelligence
by means of you they want to express themselves.
The whispering in your ear
saying Let me be free.
Set me free today.
Allow me to come forward and express myself.
and you are here to in some way make a choice to say YES.
