Common suggestions include finding inspiration, meditating, getting into alignment with your higher self..

Why suggest simply finding a temporary connection or alignment with your higher self rather than simply saying "Hey, higher self, you're here now and we're driving this boat." Why not bring your higher self to you, and be your higher self as you journey through life?

its the same thing. If you can just say it verbally and can be aligned or BE the higher self that would be great. But for most thats not easy. Finding inspiration, meditation, singing dancing etc are just ways to be connected to your Higher Self. More you do it more you are in that state w/o falling out of it.

There are few true masters who do reach the level where they perpetually seem to be connected to Higher Self. So it is possible what you are saying with good practice. Its easier than you think once you are really following your joy and feel that easiness.

you still have a body and a journey to experience, parts of you but not per say your higher self.

There are no "TWO" there is only "ONE".

You are your higher self, it is your thoughts of separation/negativity that makes you think this isn't so. Behind these thoughts is the truth.

@arpgme, you're the one making most sense around here. With you I'd have a drink or two, and drift off to the night in the each sip and every moment of now. Lmao.

And although most of your answers or anyone's answers fall on deaf ears and closed hearts, it's a great show to watch.

yes @arpgme, but just stating "there are no two there is only one" can be understood on an intellectual level but offers little aid in "knowing" ... it's a bit like explaining that we can travel to the moon in a space craft ... though this statement is true it doesn't explain "how" or what it feels like ... it would be useful to create a channel between the nebulosity of your thoughts and physical reality as we perceive it so that all can understand :)

@ru bis, it doesn't explain how, and those who don't know it, won't get it. I came to realization that in many ways people here on IQ are the saddest, most unhappy, pathetic group of people I've ever met. Sadly and gladly, I'm part of it.

Always thinking, over thinking, intimidated by life looking for a crutch in figuring it all out through illusory escape route of spirituality. Paradise everywhere I look, yet the blabbering about hellish feelings and suffering goes on.

Maybe the best way...

(22 May '13, 05:05) CalonLan find out what traveling to the Moon feels like is to travel to the Moon. There's no substitute. Yesterday I've been to Auschwitz - concentration camp from WW2 - I heard about it many times, I heard about what happened there, I seen from pictures and movies what it was like... But felt sort of indifferent about it all. Only when I visit the place, saw the places people died, were shot and hanged, and saw actual photographs of executions and pictures of each prisoner that died hanging on..

..the wall. When I saw picture of a women who used to weigh 75 kg and after few years of labor weighed 25 kg.. I couldn't help but cry. Even now, when I recall that picture, my eyes are filled with tears instantly. And that only having a rendezvous with a bit of history, not actually living through it.

We could talk about it, or life, or universe or anything forever. But talking is BS. Just like LOA teachers, teaching about getting rich, when they themselves got rich by just talking about and..

thanks for creating the channel between nebulosity and our physical reality ♥ ♫♥♫ ♥♫

(22 May '13, 05:18) ru bis

..exploiting people's weaknesses instilled in them by the society they live in.

Like...I pay you my money, so you get rich, only so you can tell me how you got rich. WHAAAT? Absurd.

So much for the sad part. The glad part is I see all this and can finally burn all that nonsense books about trying to figure out life and get on with living it instead. So long, so well.

(22 May '13, 05:24) CalonLan

@ru bis, you see, I don't even know what you see in what I write what I don't see in it myself. And that's the problem with all of this thinking and perception.

Now let me forget it all, and let all forget about me. It was fun. =)

(22 May '13, 05:41) CalonLan

Tonight I shall lift my glass to you @CalonLan . A man that knows everything and claims stupidity. A man that could enrage many with a simple sentence and give warming love in the next. It's always a true honor to meet and have known you. Until next time CalonLan travel well!

(22 May '13, 06:37) ursixx

@CalonLan i simply love what you say, i too with @ursixx, shall lift my glass to you, to pure genius

Strange question really.

Im mean we all are " being" our higher selves. We cant help being our higher selves, and we are that if were spiritually in tune or not.

We cant opt out of being our higher selves, we are that.

But in this reality which we broadly share we have two distinct parts of ourselves. We have bodies and brains , a physical self.

So to get the very best from this physical experience we align the two. When this happens, if it happens, our lives become better. We get more happiness, joy and positive results.

The question implies that we have a choice of:

a. aligning with higher self


b.being higher self

My take is that we have this choice:

a.aligning with higher self


b.not aligning with higher self

Being your higher self " only" and exclusively will come into play, but not whilst you have your physical self.

We are in a system with limitations for a reason. Our higher selves are always there, we are always connected to them. In fact we are them truly, we only experience this separation. We almost have to do it this way because we have come to experience this separation. ALl lives, good and bad are truly only experiences for the oversoul. And i guess this gets me to the part of wording here. When u say higher self, do u mean portions of our oversoul from higher densities, or do u mean being our oversoul ? When we are a fractile of our oversoul we can not experience fully what the oversoul is. This is fairly hard to try n explain, so i will let TReb do it for me. It is funny u mentioned this idea, this is a perfect timing. Last night a session was done exactly about this. Listen and this will help solve all ur questions.

hope this helped. love n light
