Who Am I?
To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.
I describe myself as a life coach, spiritual guide and social activist.
Yet in this most simple of questions 'Who am I?" lies the mysteries of life, our deepest desires and our hidden powers.
It is only in first knowing ourself that we can know another. Until we truly know ourself, our vision of others is clouded by our own projections, beliefs and judgments. We see things that are not there and we fail to see what is.
However there is a place in all of us where we know the truth of who we are. It is not a place anyone else can show us. It's a journey of self discovery more profound than that of Columbus, Livingstone or Einstein. It's a journey deep into our own consciousness.
Here at the centre of our being we will discover our soul, our higher self, our essence. It doesn’t matter what name we give it. It's a universal experience.
We all find many ways to define who we are. Ways to define ourself. For me that includes: father, partner, ex-partner, philosopher, healer, lover, writer, visionary, friend, brother, son, entrepreneur, dyslexic, environmentalist, electrician, political animal, businessman, Piscean, enneagram 'Maverick', psychometric 'Squiggle', Wealth Dynamics 'Creator', . . . . . the list goes on an on.
All these are helpful, but all ultimately fail to tell the truth. Each and every definition limits who we are. Definitions limit our freedom and our ability to choose a new - every day.
I am blessed to be creating a life of love, wisdom, abundance and creativity.
I live in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. I share parenting of my amazing daughter Evelyn with her wonderful mother Kate.
I'm currently immersed in creating a new spiritual centre in Ubud Bali. Please visit our website and consider going us. www.jalancintasanctaury.com
