Who Are You?

I just came back from a weekend at Lost Valley Educational Center – a follow-up to our seven month diksha process. As usual, it was quite remarkable (allowing for deepening connection with Source, and for unravelling of old patterns).

One of the activities we did was the Enlightenment Intensive format of pairing up and then taking turns asking each other who are you?

I found it very powerful, and it quickly took me right to my edge…

  • I am everything passing through
  • I am everything happening here now
  • I am sensations passing through
  • I am all the bodies in this room passing through
  • I am the voices passing through
  • I am this body passing through
  • I am sensations passing through
  • I am emotions passing through
  • I am thoughts passing through
  • I am resistance passing through
  • I am the letting go of the resistance
  • I am confusion
  • I am clarity
  • I am too much for words
  • I am fear of having no identity passing through
  • I am the letting go of that fear
  • I am contractions passing through
  • I am the attachment to the contractions
  • I am the letting go of the contractions
  • I am everything passing through
  • I am the trying to hold onto something
  • I am the letting go of holding onto something
  • I am that which can never be held onto
  • I am always fresh and new
  • I am always the same
  • I am timeless
  • I am awareness
  • I am whatever is happening Here (in the timeless present)
  • I am the identification with an I and the appearance of an I
  • I am always free from any identification with an I
  • I am the recognition that I always am free from an I

And so on…

It is a process of peeling off identifications, and it seems to…

  1. Allows an organic unfolding of the process.

    It is a gentle yet possibly swift unfolding, allowing for exploration and familiarity with the current edge(s) of our identity. And it seems to naturally unfold at a pace appropriate for each person – as long as the space is held by the other, through the repeated question and the neutral witnessing. This is another form of inquiry, and it has its own built-in regulation – moving along at just the pace right for the current process.

  2. Allows for a witnessing of what we are identified with.

    We go right to the edge(s) of our identity, we are given an opportunity to see where we are currently identified and to gently move beyond this. Whatever I think I am, is not it. Whatever I think I am, is exactly where there is a blind spot. Whenever there is an identity, it is an attachment to a thought, a belief, an abstraction – limiting what is.
