Recognizing the divine nature of yourself doesn't mean that you are a perfect being and that you will never make mistakes and that you are not allowed. No, part of recognizing who we are is to also recognize that we are in a constant process of development, change, stretching, and experimenting. In that quest we are going to make mistakes and near misses. We are going to do some things that are completely foreign to our nature and to the Who am I.
Sometimes when you make a presentation of yourself out to the world, you think that is what you really wanted, and after it was said and done, you realize it was completely wrong, and not really what you wanted at all. But don't stop trying to wake yourself, and pushing yourself to discover the who am I of the moment. It will come to you in those encounters, and giving yourself over to trying new things to see if you enjoy them, are they a passion for you, or you dislike something. It gives you more clarity to answer of who am I?.Your self-discovery process goes something along the line of this, I like this, I don't like this, I am crazy about this, I can do this, I want to learn everything I can about this, what is this, I want to be like them, this is magical, this is exciting, boring, yuch! But if you don't put yourself out there you will not know.
Whether you are nervous, afraid or not you still have the divine nature and rights to do, to learn and to play. Everyone gets nervous and even afraid when one tries something new, and there will be many moments of failure, but it doesn't hold any value if you don't let it.But very shortly the I am will begin to make itself known to you and nothing else but becoming self fulfilled will hold any value for you. We also have to respond to the joy-meter within. If we are doing too many things that do not make us joyful, we become despondent and sullen.
The further you move away from who you truly are, the more entrenched you become in the limited and mind-locked position. It takes greater effort to raise yourself, and strip all the limiting thoughts. But if you stick with it the effort becomes very worth it. Being self fulfilled is enriching. Becoming enlightened means that you accomplish things in less time with more joy and passion and you consistently move beyond limitations of thought and the physical realm. Everything feels like an adventure, and you open yourself to new and greater channels of creativity, joy and laughter.
