What is self-realization?
Well, it’s many things to many people. For some, it’s simply the fulfilment of our character, our dreams, our place in the world. Often the first thing people ask us when we meet for the first time is, “And what do you do?” We are identified with the position we hold in our community, aren’t we?
I remember with such clarity the time in my life when I had to retire on medical grounds. Pretty soon thereafter, I was left feeling distraught and completely lacking in purpose. This was the exact opposite of self-realization as I envisaged it at the time.
For others, self-realization is a deeper knowing of our role in the universe, of being awake to and aware of all our infinite capabilities, inextricably linked to Source (God, the Creator). We realize that we are not this body-mind; we simply inhabit it temporarily. It took trauma and crisis in my life to open my eyes to this eternal truth, and I’m forever grateful for it!
