Who Am I? Why Am I Here? How Did I Get Here?

Author: Jason Randhawa

Such thought-provoking questions as Who am I?, Why am I here? and How did I get here? have all been answered by metaphysics. The understanding of the answers to these questions are essential to understanding any part of metaphysics, and in obtaining true peace of mind.

I have come to understand the answers to such seemingly impossible questions as follows:

Who Am I?

I am an omnipotent, spirtual being experiencing physical reality. I am a Piece of the One, basically a spark of consciousness. But that statement in itself is misleading, because not only am I a Piece of the One, but I am the Whole One. (In answering this questions I use the word "I", but the answer is the same for you as it is for me. So when I say "I", I am talking about all humans.)

Many people like to say they have a Higher Self, but the truth is you are your Higher Self. If this is your first time hearing this it may sound strange and confusing. But take some time to digest it, maybe meditate upon it. And I am sure you will come to know it as truth. You are not just the part of your Higher Self that is experiencing physical existence, you are your Whole Higher Self. It just seems like you are seperated from your Higher Self because your awareness is completely focused into physical reality. So that seemingly distant part of you, that you call your Higher Self, is just You. Again, the only difference is your "Higher Self's" awareness is not completly focused on physical reality.

How Did I Get Here? & Why Am I Here?

I believe Abraham has wonderfully answered these questions in the book, "Ask and It Is Given" by Esther and Jerry Hicks. Directly from the book, "You are eternal Beings, who have chosen to participate in this specific physical life experience for many wonderful reasons. And this time-space-reality on Planet Earth serves as a platform in which you are able to focus your perspective for the purpose of specific creation.

You are eternal Consciousness, currently in this wonderful physical body for the thrill and exhilaration of specific focus and creation. The physical being that you define as "you" stands on the Leading Edge of thought, while Consciousness, which is really your Source, pours through you."

Nobody made you experience this. There are many reasons why you would desire to experience this space-time reality. Such as an exciting opportunity to exist seemingly seperate from other parts of yourself. Also in this reality you are able to experience what it is like to not know that you are the Creator. This allows for us to experience what we call negative emotions. It seems very strange to us that we would want to experience "negative" emotions, but it is really just an experience. This is what consciousness is all about; creating new possibilites, and then gaining experience. Therefore, you are simply here to experience this time-space reality

In summary:

    You are an Eternal Spark of Consciousness
    You are your Higher Self
    You are experiencing physical reality because you chose to
    You are here to gain experience and expand Consciousness
