What is Self Realization?
When we think of “self realisation” it’s easy to imagine it to mean the achievement of our highest dreams, or perhaps a deeper awareness of ourselves. And even though we do strive for these things, our results are usually limited by what we, as humans, can achieve. So to get beyond, something extra has to happen. This is where tapping into a higher state of consciousness comes in.
Who are you in reality?
Let’s look at it from another angle. You say, ‘My head,’ ‘My body,’ ‘My feet,’ ‘My eyes,’ ‘My ears.’ You don’t say, ‘I am head,’ ‘I am body,’ etc. This means that all your body parts fall under ‘My.’ Similarly, you say, ‘My watch,’ ‘My eyeglasses,’ ‘My house,’ ‘My car,’ you don’t say ‘I am watch,’ ‘I am eyeglasses,’ etc., which means that all your belongings also go under ‘My.’ So then who is the owner of everything that comes under ‘My’? Keeping all the items that fall under “my” aside, you are only left with the owner – “I”. That “I” is precisely what you need to realize and that is Self Realization.
