The Enlightenment of Self-Knowledge

The soul is what one must contact to know oneself. To know who one truly is, is not one particular event or phrase that can be spoken. Ones true self is made up of all the myriad parts of oneself, including the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of a person. To know oneself is a combination of knowing what one likes to do with and for his body, to know what things will affect his emotions, what mental thought challenges him to aspire to higher thought and to know what spiritual concepts form the borders of his life. Spiritual concepts are what will stop a person from taking any action that does not fit in with what he feels is the right action as far as his own conscience. The changing of these concepts as to right and wrong action is the way to allow a person to grow and expand. The concepts ingrained into them as children are what will form the experiences of that person for the rest of their life unless the consciousness can be raised to allow these to be changed. Consciousness must grow and expand along with the physical body. Knowing yourself will focus on three main things – Attitudes, Goals and Karma.
• Attitudes – An attitude is one’s own personal concept of an experience that one then takes into his universe as a rule to live his life by. Most attitudes are learned as a child through interaction with the family. These can be by observation of a role model – father, mother, teacher, or sibling, etc. – or by an experience of a personal nature.
• Goals – Each one presently on the earth plane chose goals before entering. One goal has to do with your physical evolution, wherein lies the answer to your career choices. The other goal will have to do with your spiritual evolution and this will determine how you accomplish the materialistic goal.
• Karma – Karma is part of the judicial system. It is the sentence that is “handed down,” so to speak, from the “judge” of your action, which is your own soul. It is your own conscience that determines your own wrongdoing that sets your own penalty or karma. You also determine the length of the sentence or karma that you owe to another.
