You are Pure Divine Love manifested. And this Love, alone, is more than sufficient for providing “you” with all that is wanted and “needed” in this world. Your Love, alone, expressed unconditionally to yourself, and extended out to the greater Self that is existence itself, without attachment or expectation, represents, and purely reflects who you Truly are.
You, alone, are more than enough to give yourself all that you need. Nothing else compares.
A billion followers, “friends,” or anything else (even those claiming to “love” what you represent to/for their ego within the illusions of Maya), for example, can never have as much power to heal, transform, uplift, strengthen, enlighten, fulfill, and/or sustain “you” as tapping into the pure and infinite well spring of True Love within you/your Self that makes all things possible.
All That You Need Is To Be Connected To Your True Self
You are already a complete and boundlessly abundant/capable being who has the resources and power to provide yourself with the fulfillment, compassion, joy, resources, support, and whatever else that you (could/can) need and/or desire, and even imagine…”riches” that no amount of objects (tangible or intangible) can truly give you.
Again, you are infinite Love, with unbounded potential, manifested into physical form (and so is everyone and everything else). Never “sell yourself short” by tying your worth, your value, your happiness, your anything to the fleeting scraps of mediocre objects and expressions within Maya that bind you to body-mind-ego identification (gratification or fear) and confine or define you as a thing or a “some body/somebody” in this world.
You are no thing; you are no body.
No expression nor experience defines you.
And this is crucial to understand if you want to truly be Liberated from ignorance and suffering in this lifetime.
A Reminder Of Who You Are
The Self, is untouched, unbounded, unaffected by all form and projected experience. The Self–that which illuminates all things and makes all things possible–cannot be known/limited (no matter how favorable any expression may appear to be to certain egos at any given time in history) by looking at its reflections, which are shaped by the conditions of any given body-mind that is manifested into the world and its relationship to the changing/socially constructed version of “reality” sustained by collective egos.
Do not look for the True Self in actions, thoughts, words, etc (Karmas), all of these things are appearances (sometimes close reflections–depending on a being’s purity of being, which represents a dissolution of the ego–but never the Absolute Truth, especially since you cannot see every little detail of manifested existence with the human brain, and you [in your personal body-mind] can only Know the full Reality of “all that is” by looking beyond the mind/body perceptive vehicle). Look beyond appearances to what is, and will always be…and when you do, you see only one Truth shining forth: that you and “all that is” are one. This one is who you (and everyone else) are.
And, the fact that most people are lost in body-mind-ego identification does not change the Truth of who you and they are either. Understanding that this misidentification is occurring, however, does make it a bit easier for you to navigate in this world–in which a false-sense-of identity causes people to engage in all kinds of destructive Karmas that violate “your” and “others'” (and their) manifest right to exist and change without oppression/harm within physical reality–with a bit more ease that comes from awareness and compassion.
Do not be concerned about whether or not anyone else “gets it.”
To even just the smallest extent, everyone knows what is True since they know, if nothing else, that they exist. Their covering themselves with layers of ego body-mind costumes, and their focus on playing roles that keep them unconsciously bound within Maya (which gets them lost and confused about who they are) is irrelevant to the Truth. All distortions can be cleared when a person begins to sincerely search for him/her/they Self and is ready to drop their act of living out the drama of the pursuit of trinkets to decorate their costume in the world (or to cry about how they don’t have any/enough trinkets). Remain grounded in the Truth and remember that everyone can learn to simply settle into their whole and complete Nature when they are ready. Their costumes are irrelevant since, at our core, everyone is essentially the same infinite unbounded light of awareness.
Enjoy your play. And when you have matured enough and had enough of the non-sense, remember that you were/are never not who you Truly are.
When you are ready to dissolve your roles/costumes, know that there are infinitely useful methodologies for “waking up,” and “coming back” to Reality and to your Self, and the Yogic Eightfold Path, coming back to your Nature in/as Love, is one of them.
