You are Greater Than You Think!

Experience your greatness!

Journal the answer to the following questions.
Who am I?
How am I feeling?

If you’re like most people, you answered the questions with a series of “I ams.” And while this is all very well and good, it is not as true as you may think.

Why? The word “am,” recognized as “you in the present,” also implies “equal to,” as in I am this or I am that. And while I will not argue that you are in someway that which you claim to be, I would argue that you are so much more than you calim to be.

To get better idea of this, try adding a little perspective to your proclamations by substituting your absolute “I ams” from your journaling exercise with the following relative “I ams.”

I am greater than my _________
I am more than my ___________
I am simply experiencing ____________ (this aspect of myself.)
I am so much more than my ____________
I am ___________ and more.
I am currently _______________ and so much more.
I am currently feeling _________

Coming full-circle, realizing  what is true for you is true for others, consider the idea of perceiving others in their greatness.

You are greater than your ___________
You are so more than your __________
You are simply experiencing ____________ (this aspect of yourself.)
You are so much more than your ____________
You are ___________ and more
You are currently _______________
You are currently feeling _________

Can you feel the difference? The absolute “I am” is a bit stagnate, but the relative “I am” and “You are” is fluid and expansive like the ever changing present moment.

Now I realize you won’t be speaking this way this to others, because that’s just not how our society currently communicates, but once you begin to accept and practice the idea of “greater than-ness”, you will begin to see the world in a whole new light.
