06 – The Soul – Who am I? Consciousness, first of all (Part 1)
Page 1 of 6
There comes a time in our lives when we are ready to ask ourselves “Who am I?”
This is a very important moment for our evolution, a fundamental question that we should ask ourselves even when we are sure we already know the answer.
“I am something more in here. I am not what people see, I am much more than that!” we answer to ourselves. Nevertheless, who exactly are we?
We know that we are something that goes far beyond what we believe we are and what we see in the mirror, and yet, our identity remains too hidden from us. Sometimes, when we look in the mirror and stare into our eyes, we feel a little strange, like there is someone else staring at us; so, we lower our gaze and try to observe our reflection only for logical reasons (such as combing our hair, putting on make-up, washing our face), but never to stare ourselves in the eyes and understand “who we are”, because this makes us feel embarrassed. We feel strange looking straight into our eyes because we are afraid that something unexpected might somehow come out of them, and that upsets us. So, we avoid as much as possible staring into our eyes with the intent to find out who we are, acquiring the habit of seeing our face without giving it a true value, except to be just what it is: a simple human body.
Around us, something mobilizes to prevent us from discovering who we are, filling our days with commitments that exclude any possibility of having free time to stop and think. This fact prevents us from having time to think about ourselves and to think about our lives, giving us so many problems to pay attention to, so that we no longer think about ourselves.
Something has always prevented us from asking ourselves who we are, and we indulge it for fear of finding out too much information that we think we do not want to know. We are afraid to know who we really are. We know in our hearts that revealing the truth about ourselves will bring a very big change in our lives and this scares us, because we are not sure if it is a good thing. We are totally suffocated by work, by study, by the need to fill our heads with anything to avoid that question appearing… “Who I really am?”
We choose to run away from this need, we find comfort in the taxes to pay, in our children’s school, in the mortgages and debts, which will completely prevent us from stopping for a moment and asking ourselves: “Who I really am?”
We believe that this is the right way to find peace, because that question stirs something so great in us that, for fear of what we do not know, we even try to stifle it, until we actually do it. Running away, however, will not give us the peace we are looking for: we can only find it in the answers, real answers that would make us understand who we really are.
First of all, we are Consciousness.
There is one thing we know inside of us and that we try to hide, for fear that it is too strong to hold it tight or for fear that it will lead us on a grueling path to the discovery of the truth: and that is, that there is something great and mysterious behind our eyes. This fact makes us block even before we start getting some answers, making us fear that going forward would only increase the questions, not the answers.
People around us are often not ready to ask the same questions because they are too busy with their everyday distractions, so we find ourselves alone, having to deal with these feelings of emptiness because no one else takes us seriously. In fact, we wonder if we are the only ones asking ourselves these questions or if the others, too, sometimes look in the mirror and wonder if that face is really their essence, or if it is just a mask, a human body costume that hides their true identity.

Most of the time we think that ours is just a mental journey, that not all this exists and that we are completely imagining it, and yet, even those times, we cannot suppress that strange voice inside us that drives us to seek the truth. Commitments and chores prevent us from paying more attention to that push, because that is what we want: to ignore that voice that makes us ask who we really are. Nevertheless, that instinct continues: it is subtle, but it is always trying to make itself heard. You do everything to ignore it and to spend your time: you occupy your daily hours to get to night and go straight to sleep, so that you do not have to think about yourself, so that you do not have to ask yourself that weird, exhausting question.
Then suddenly there comes a moment in your life when you are ready to discover that you are something beyond your face, your body, your appearance. You know you are much deeper than your eyes, which do not really reflect you as much as you would like. Your wish is that people will understand you without speaking but only by looking into your eyes, the mirror of your soul; and yet, when you look in the mirror you cannot even recognize yourself. At that moment, after so many years wasted on silencing that inner voice, you are faced with a choice: to listen and follow that strong instinct once and for all, or abandon it forever. If you suppress it, you will decide to abandon your Consciousness, all that allows you to be different from the others, to become like them: identical, lifeless inside like all those people out there who identify themselves in the job they do and no longer in the life they have. Or, slowly, you can choose to listen to that inner voice more and more, noticing that it will become clearer and more direct, as if someone turned up the volume, making everything more… real.
You choose to remember who you are by deciding to listen to that instinct, letting those strange unfounded fears slip away and noticing how useless and senseless they were. Consciousness goes far beyond the ability to understand whether an action is right or wrong, whether you are doing good or bad. Consciousness is what distinguishes us from machines, which work without knowing that they Are and exist. The machines move, they act; some of them, in their own way, react to impulses just as computers do when they recognize a problem within them and solve it, but we have something more advanced that allows us to reflect, that goes beyond just thinking. We have Consciousness.
There are those who call it Soul, although they are actually two very different levels. By choosing to listen to that instinct, which is your Consciousness, you allow yourself to discover something deeper and of enormous value, which is the Soul: it is something that has never been explained to us in the correct way, specifically to keep us away from the awareness of being a superior life. We grew up in an illusion convinced that it was reality and believing that reality was only a fantasy, a creation of our mind. This is because no one has ever confirmed its truthfulness, letting us convinced that something, in order to exist, must be confirmed by anyone, and not only by those who are able of seeing it and understanding it. The truth is not for everyone, but only for those who choose to discover it.
Consciousness pushes you further, it invites you to follow an evolutionary path that allows you to get closer to It, to know It and finally understand what is its purpose and how to reach it. At first, it may seem like a voice foreign to you: It is there, inside your chest, but you do not recognize it as yourself because it is different from you, very different. You feel this instinct that does not speak in words and yet you feel it, it is in there in your chest pushing to get out, but something is stopping it. It is a strange feeling, sometimes melancholic, and yet you know it is real because it is so strong, even when you try to hide it.

You look around and you know that right now you are the only one to feel this feeling, to hear this voice, and this scares you because it makes you feel like you are the only one in the world. Actually, you are not the only one: many others feel the same feeling every day, they just do not have the courage to say it and, moreover, not everyone perceives it at the same time. Each person has his own moment of listening and not everyone decides to start paying attention to that voice, because most of the time we prefer to bury it with a thousand problems to solve, unaware that the solution to our burdens is precisely that.
Yet, you keep feeling that push, that presence inside you that communicates most of the time without talking; but you feel it, and it is hard to deny its existence. You know that continuing to ignore it would lead to the end of your Consciousness, but most of the time you try to stifle even this awareness, because it scares you. You know that, if you separate yourself from that presence, you would lose something too big and too important, but you do not know its value and what it is exactly; so, you let yourself be deceived by apathy and you try again to move it to a place far from you so you do not hear it. Consciousness communicates with a different force from yours, a wiser, more evolved mental ability: it is as if it knew something that you do not know, and saw far beyond what you can see; nevertheless, you do not know whether to trust it blindly because you fear that following it will take you too far from your life, from your habits. You think It is very different from you but It is not, because it is you who are different, it is you who walked away without realizing it. You have the luck that It has not abandoned you yet and let you fall asleep like so many others. You have the choice every day whether to listen to it or not. The choice to listen to Consciousness is not radical, because every day you may decide to change your mind, listening to it or ignoring it. The choice will never be forced or drastic, most of the time you will forget you can choose and so you will let yourself slip into sleep, the sleep that will take you away from evolution. However, it will not be too late yet: until you completely forget Its existence, you can still try to do something; or, you will not remember anything, becoming a human machine. Letting yourself fall asleep will take you to the end of your days, making you die inside. It does not matter if the body will continue to function, because inside you will feel lifeless, without any reason to go on living. This is not the destiny that awaits you, but you must choose it every day, because by not choosing you will let your Conscience abandon you.
Consciousness is something that goes far beyond just a simple intuition or the idea of being different. By following It, you allow yourself to be really different, to become someone that you could not before feel you were, even if you had everything. Consciousness is that matter that fills your emptiness and that you have been searching for all your life, but you have never understood how to collect or possess it. It is not easy to understand, yet Consciousness has always belonged to you but you never knew how to use it. You may believe that Consciousness is only an indefinite, shapeless and worthless thing, present inside you and that it does not need attention: in reality, it is a force that would allow you to achieve goals that you did not even hope to be able to approach, if you decide to commit yourself to its evolution. Indeed, Consciousness is like your legs: if you do not take the effort to move them, your body will not move and you will not be able to move forward, staying still forever. You could try to move using other means, such as crawling, dragging yourself on the ground with your nails, but sooner or later all this would destroy you. The awareness allows you to understand that the initial effort to give movement to your legs, which will take you where you want to go, will be minimal compared to everything you will get thanks to that small sacrifice; it would be different if you decided not to move them and to drag yourself on the ground to get where you want to go, knowing very well that for fear of the first effort (walking with your legs) you would find yourself using much more effort and pain. These would be the results.

Consciousness is like your legs, because if you decide to use It now, It will take you where you want to go; on the contrary, without It you will struggle much much more to pursue a goal that you may never achieve. With your legs you walk fast, you can even run and reach miles away, but crawling on the ground you will stop very soon, tired and destroyed. As your legs are not there for beauty, only to stand still, neither your Conscience is there for beauty, only to stand still. Knowing that you have a Consciousness does not mean knowing how to use It, much less knowing how to use It always. The most common mistake is to believe that Consciousness should only be listened to, but the reality is that it should be used, it should be filled, and it should be trained just like your legs. It is not just a voice; Consciousness is alive and communicates its knowledge, which can increase if you allow it, training you to use it. All living beings possess one Consciousness: humans, animals, even plants, which during their lives can memorize and remember that they have experienced. There are people, however, who possess something more than Consciousness: it is called Soul. The Soul is something that not everyone possesses because, unlike what we have been led to believe, it constantly needs attention, energetic nourishment and practice to strengthen it. So, most people ignore it without giving it value, thinking that everything is due to them and that they do not need it. Everyone ignores the Soul, but when some people learn that they may not have it, they start shaking as if they ever cared.
People have a different level of evolution due to their own life experience, their own reflections, but above all their own attempts to rediscover themselves, to awaken through spiritual techniques. Everyone has a Consciousness – which some people confuse with the Soul – but despite everyone has it, only a few persons decide to listen to it and follow it until the end to begin an evolutionary path that will lead them to understand it. Everyone has a different time to start thinking about their life, some will never start, but we cannot expect everyone to start today with us, because it is not their time. Some will start in a few years, many others will never choose to start and for this reason they will not be able to understand what it feels like to be aware of their own Consciousness, often because they do not know where to start and do not know the right method. “Who am I?” is the question that everyone is asking, but only few will decide to continue, thus beginning a spiritual journey. Little by little, we decided to assign terms to identify the difference between people who do not want to know themselves from people who really want to discover and evolve. I fully agree with those who would think that this is a structured method and that it is not correct to label, let alone generalize, but it is essential (to make the idea of what we will discover) to talk about people in search of the truth and people who prefer to stay asleep and not know anything about everything around them.
The search for our own essence and the desire to discover who we are, leads us back to a spiritual way to understand what our Consciousness wants to achieve and how to obtain the results. Asking ourselves this question every day and not stopping at the usual banal answer, we are increasingly driven to follow what is called Spirituality. Although it may seem something unknown, it all begins with the question about our real essence, and from that point it extends to the decision to apply every day to the discovery of a new knowledge that accumulates little by little. The spiritual path is like a path on which you will find more information about yourself step by step, if you walk it.

We could then speak of spiritual people, who are those who seek answers to their questions, and non-spiritual people, that is, all those who every day prefer to sleep and know nothing about it, for fear that it is something too big for them or for simple apathy. No matter what the reasons are for deciding to sleep or choosing not to make a decision, the point is that by remaining chained in the routine and forgetting your Consciousness, you end up losing it altogether. Nowadays the term “spiritual” is used by everyone, more for fashion than for real choice, defining some people as spiritual despite not believing in spirituality. This leads to ruin the true value of this term, making it seem like something that has nothing to do with what we were initially looking for, because we see some people who are supposed to represent spiritual evolution behave worse than those who say they know nothing about it. The point, in fact, is not to define yourself as spiritual and therefore to say you are, but really be.
We should try to use other terms, precisely because when we refer to a person the term “spiritual” can vary. The word “spiritual” does not really indicate the evolution of a person, but only the (spiritual) activities that he carries out for a certain period of his life, not actually knowing whether he will last forever. Through practical techniques you can learn to recognize those who have a higher Consciousness from those who are losing their Consciousness forever, although you cannot understand people’s evolution just by talking to them (because they could be hiding what they know) or just by looking at them, because not always the physical aspect of that moment represents the internal evolution, especially if we expect that being evolved is like always being dressed well and with freshly made hair. Currently, you do not know how to recognize others who, like you, are looking for answers to their own questions, if not by setting a theoretical definition. For this reason, let us try together to understand the differences.
First, let us talk about spiritual and non-spiritual people. These terms are intended to define who, at this very moment, is practicing a spiritual path or is not practicing anything at all. In this path we will learn to define spiritual only those who, for real, are practicing meditative techniques, although anyone today describes themselves as spiritual people without even having practiced a single meditation, but only because they believe – without any basic principle – that they are evolved people and, more than anything better, wiser and more conscious than all the others. Those who do not practice (even if they speak of themselves as a god who has come to the Earth) still remain non-spiritual persons, because in fact they do not practice any technique to evolve in earnest and spend their time praising themselves with so many beautiful words, which remain only words.
As mentioned before, every person is different and has a fair and personal time, so if Now is your time to be spiritual, it may not necessarily be the same for the people around you; but that does not mean that, if they are not ready now, they will not be ready forever. In fact, some of them might start reflecting on maybe in a few months, others is a few years, deciding one day to practice with the intention of evolving and then becoming spiritual. Moreover, spirituality is a choice that must be made every day but when you forget to choose, you start to lose spirituality, precisely because your Consciousness is falling asleep. For this reason, it is not possible to define someone as spiritual just because years ago he tried to practice something, because this does not mean that he is doing it today, in the present moment. Being spiritual is a choice, and when we stop choosing we stop being spiritual. Therefore, we can use another method of recognition, remembering that this too remains, for your current level of understanding, only a theoretical method. When you have learned the proper techniques to recognize who has a strong Consciousness and who does not, you will understand these concepts and the value of these terms much better.

We can talk about those who stop to have a Consciousness without even knowing it and those who instead become aware every day and create something that goes far beyond human Consciousness, which will be the Soul. In order to be able to recognize those who will never understand the meaning of asking themselves questions about their existence and the reason for their life, from those who have understood that they must go all the way and recognize the purpose of their birth and their future, we will use simple terms that will remain generic to not label people for life.
First of all, let us talk about those who have not the very slightest interest in discovering the reason for their existence; but not only that, we deal with the kind of person who gets annoyed when someone else tries to ask themselves this question. Basically, there would be no reason to get nervous if someone else wants to believe in a different theory and yet, when it comes to spirituality, some people are forcibly trying to prevent others from asking themselves some questions. Although some people may think that there is no purpose in life and that the ultimate goal is to be born and die without ever having achieved anything evolutionary during their own life, there should be no reason to get angry if someone else, without bothering anyone, tries to discover their own personal identity. If this identity does not exist, why do some people work so hard to hide it from those who are looking for it? Why must they go against those who wish to believe that there is something beyond what we generally see? There would be no logical reason, except that they are driven by something greater than themselves that prevents them from evolving and that is committed to preventing others from doing so. In this path, we will define people who are not spiritual, who do not believe in spirituality, and who might even go against those who ask questions about evolution, with the term “Gaia’s Low”.
Gaia’s Low refers to people who have a Low Frequency (which you will understand by reading the appropriate articles) belonging to the planet Earth that, on this path, we will call Gaia. People who will not go beyond the human life that has been imposed on them, who will not ask themselves questions about their real essence, who will not ask themselves “who am I?”, who will not want to know it, and who possess a Consciousness that is too connected to the planet, will be called “Gaia people”, or, to be more correct, low-frequency Consciousnesses connected to the planet Gaia. So they will be called Gaia’s Low. In the next documents, you will better understand the differences. Gaia’s Low, or people with a low Consciousness, are mainly divided into less evolved and more evolved people because the latter, while not practicing meditation and spiritual techniques, try in their own way to recognize their Consciousness and not forget it. This unfortunately is not enough to go beyond Consciousness, because without energy techniques we are limited and ultimately blocked. As opposed to Gaia’s Low, we have spirituals, that is people who not only ask themselves questions and wonder how to evolve their lives, but they also try to find the right way to do it through meditation and practical techniques. This is just a smattering of what you need to know. But what is really important is not to forget that one’s Consciousness needs to be trained and not just listened to, because this will lead practitioners to discover information about their existence that they would never have believed possible, if they had not arrived so obvious.
By choosing not to listen to your own Consciousness, you choose to end your life by becoming a human machine. Instead, choosing to listen to It and to make the most of it you decide to evolve more than ever, from life to life. No one can choose for you, but I can advise you to follow your Consciousness to the ends of the Earth, because It will always be right, even when you are not.
