The 3 Steps to Knowing Yourself as God
By Jafree Ozwald
One of highest experiences you can have in your lifetime is to know yourself as the Divine. When you let go of all fear, drop every judgment you have, release all those opinions about yourself and others, you stop believing you are separate from God. You can discover a place of sacred refuge within that is like no other. It’s only your mind that makes you think you’re separate, when in reality you’re one with the ocean of existence. It’s not until you realize that you are not this mind, nor your ego, that this false identity ceases to run the show. You’ve created this idea about who you are, yet its just a conglomerate of thoughts and is not who you truly are. Once you drop all separation, only then can you let go and find true permanent peace within.
Some people may say its blasphemous to see yourself as God, yet I say it’s totally ridiculous not to. The cause of all suffering in life stems from the one tiny little idea that you are separate from the God Source. When this belief is truly challenged and you relieve its grip on you, there is such a tremendous freedom and love found that you’ll never ever be the same again. I invite you to sit with this challenge this week, if you truly want to be free from all the suffering in your life. Below are the 3 essential steps we all must take to step out of suffering and find total unification with the God Source.
1. Deeply accept that there is a highly intelligent conscious creative source of energy that runs through everything. God actually exists. It is like one thread weaving through the entire tapestry of life. There is nothing that is not touched by this divine intelligence.
2. Know that I am connected to the God Source from which all manifestation happens. In an infinite field of space (the Universe) each point in that field is the actual “center” of the entire field. You are one of these points from which the entire Universe revolves around. Every thought you think radiates outward, creating your experience of Reality in this infinite space time continuum.
3. Realize that everyone and everything is the God Source. There is nobody who is not connected to God. How can the finger ever work separately from the hand? All beings have this divine thread of intelligence running through their consciousness. No matter how unconscious they are, it still exists within each living cell. Once you realize that the God Self that you are, is also the same God Self in everyone else, you stop perceiving yourself as separate and see them as an aspect of the Real You!
So the really big question here is what can you do to drop your ego? Well, this is a tricky one because there is nothing you can “do”. Its more of an un-doing and a releasing of everything when the ego is finally freed. It is only through total surrender to Source that the Divine finds you. The ego is simply an over-identification with the “I” thoughts. Those thoughts that say, “I am this” or “I am not that” create the entire ego trip. When you get hooked into believing “I am this or not that”, you are creating attachment to limiting ideas and instigating the entire ego and your suffering. The truth is that you are nothing and everything, because you are God and that which is beyond God. It’s really that profound and that simple.
Some people ask me, “What’s the difference between my mind and my ego?” Not much, its just that your ego is a personification of your mind. The mind gets attached to ideas and makes you identified with them. This creates the ego. When you are thinking that you are this body, and you have these problems, these feeling, and these thoughts you start becoming identified. The only way to know yourself as God is to become unidentified with everything and also know you are ONE with everything at the same time. This realization cannot be forced yet happens instantaneously when you drop deep enough into the exploration of the Truth of who/what you are.
“God is there only if you surrender. Surrender makes anything God. Surrender gives you the eyes,
and everything that is brought to these eyes becomes Divine.” ~Osho
We all grow up as kids starting off with an ego so that later in life we can transcend it. That is the goal. When you believe you are separate and disconnected from a divine all loving infinite Source and think there is no connection at all, you are only seeing one side of the coin. Try all three sides of the coin (the edge is a side) and you’ll see suffering instantly evaporates. We are each supposed to believe in limitation, lack and struggle just so that we can one day drop it all. This is the purpose of believing in any lie. When you create the illusion that you are stuck, separate, challenged and disconnected from the infinitely conscious loving God Source, the day you return back to it you receive the greatest spiritual experience of your life! Divine unification on the deepest levels wouldn’t be possible without the illusion and experience of having an ego.
There is really nothing to worry about. The Universe gives you an infinite number of lifetimes to wake up and realize you are already a powerful divine exquisite being who is the creative God Source at the core. The Universe is infinitely patient with the speed of your realization progress. You don’t need to “push” yourself to get there. All you want to do relax, be still, and show up fully in this moment. Be 100% open to whatever is here now. There are many practices and techniques in my online Super Manifesting Program that will help you do this much faster and easier if you don’t want to figure it out on your own. Yet, the key is to practice looking within the quietest aspects of your being, there you will find God. This is the only place where a real permanent state of happiness resides. It is where all success and enlightenment is found. Finding this real uncompromised unconditional happiness 24 hours a day is the main goal of your life and why you are truly here.
“Life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to be solved.” ~Osho
It’s good to know that life will always throw a curve ball at you to keep you alert and awake. The mind is a slippery trickster, in that it can hide from the truth and create all sorts of fabricated illusions about what Truth is, without really surrendering to what is here now. It’s this untamed mind that creates all the extra difficulty you’re experiencing in life. It can make you think that if you are not the master, that you are a slave to its ideas. It may also think if you sat down to relax for a moment, you would miss your one and only golden opportunity to freedom that will never come your way again. Don’t listen to the mind. Don’t believe in anything that it thinks, for it lives in duality and will one day believe the opposite is true. Everything is subject to change. Only when you can tame the mind, and make it believe you are its master, then amazing and miraculous things will happen! You’ll find that the only true foundation in life is your simple soft loving sweet presence that arises from consciousness itself. This pure consciousness never changes, everything else changes. By simply bathing in pure consciousness, each moment becomes your golden ticket to return home.
Remember, whenever your ego behaves in a destructive way it is really trying to relieve you of its burden. Deep down the ego knows that it is not real, and that one day it will die and you’ll realize what a great sham was pulled over your eyes. When you leave the body and God Source takes you back home, this ego will be gone. Yet, you don’t have to wait…you can transcend the ego now with love. If anything is going to help you move forward on your soul’s journey, it’s bringing more presence, love and awareness to whatever you’re doing. When you become conscious of your ego-identity and can bring a loving awareness into it, you immediately dissolve it. You’ll feel the reconnection with the perfect Divine Being you already are and the ego has not chance against that.
