"What are your desires?". Answering that becomes
much easier. I have a deep desire to transform my
experiences into wisdom and share that knowledge
with others.
If I have to put a label on me, I would identify myself
as a wisdom keeper....A wisdom keeper is someone
who acknowledges their life journey with all the
lessons along the way
and who knows that this
information is valuable and
important to share.
Some years ago I
saw a documentary about
the pyramids in Egypt.
There was an elderly man
by the name of Abd'el
Hakim Awyan, who was
like a walking library
filled with long forgotten
ancient memories and with
knowledge of universal
truths and principles. He
called himself a wisdom
keeper. I fell in love with
the expression because it actually describes every
human being on the planet, with no exceptions.
We are all keepers of our own life wisdom. The
difference between Hakim and the rest was that he
was conscious of the wisdom coming from within.
He was conscious of his part in the creation of his
life. He was conscious of who he was. Most of us
are not. The information is there but we have no
conscious access to it.
I think that we are born with the knowledge
of our own inherent power. As children we do not
perceive the conditioned limitations created by
beliefs and "knowledge" about how the outside
world works. We simply see only the possibilities
until the grownups correct us and show us the
obstacles and problems. Once we are conditioned
into the rules of our culture and society we adapt to
a "truth" that our inner thoughts don't matter when
it comes to "important" matters of the outer world.
So we end up spending our entire lives figuring
out, that our thoughts actually do matter because
they create matter. And most of us never realise
this universal truth. This is one of the reasons I want
fear and emotional distress on a daily basis. My
parents did not create the stressful environment
of my childhood consciously. They reacted to their
own past and conditioned fears. I used to tell myself
that their inherited "insanity" would end with me.
I would not allow it to pass through me into my
reality. Even as a child I knew deep within me that
there were options to their behaviour. I just didn't
know how to make them
aware of it. They saw life as
a struggle. I knew that life
was beautiful. There was
a fundamental difference
in our way of perceiving
the very same reality.
Because of these childhood
experiences, shedding
light on how beliefs and
perception shape our reality
has become an important
part of what I do and who I
am.
You have stated that:
The more we know who
we are the harder it gets
to describe who we are.
Why do you think it is so?
Actually, in my upcoming book
"#KnowTheTruth - Why Knowing Who You are
Changes Everything" I take some time trying to
figure out why it is so hard to answer that question.
On the surface, it seems like a simple question. Who
are you? I am Gordana Biernat and I am a thinker,
writer and a speaker. But that is not the whole truth.
I mean, how do you describe the ONE thinking,
writing and speaking in YOU? Because that is who
you are. You are not your thoughts. You are not your
words. How do you describe the "I" in the "I am"? It's
not just beyond words it's beyond time and space
itself.
The closest I can come to a truthful answer
to "Who are you?" is that, I am All That Is - pure
consciousness - experiencing itself, through the
passions and desires of Gordana Biernat.
So, if you really want to know someone,
the actual question is not "Who are you?" but
