Who you think you are

“Your sense of who you are determines what you perceive as your needs and what matters to you in life – and whatever matters to you will have the power to upset and disturb you.  If small things have the power to disturb you, then who you think you are is exactly that: small….”

“Nobody can tell you who you are.  It would just be another concept, so it would not change you.  Who you are requires no belief.  In fact, every belief is an obstacle.  It does not require your realization, since you already are who you are.  But without realization, who you are will not shine forth into the world.  It remains unmanifested which is, of course, your true home.  You are then like an apparently poor person who does not know he has a bank account with $100 million in it and so his wealth remains unexpressed potential.”

“The fact is whatever you think the world is withholding from you, you are withholding from the world.  You are withholding it because deep down you think you are small and that you have nothing to give… Try this for a couple of weeks and see how it changes your reality: Whatever you think people are withholding from you – praise, appreciation, assistance, loving care, and so on-give it to them.  Then soon after you start giving, you will start receiving…The source of abundance is not outside you, but it is from within.”
