I will expand on The New Identity.
Please understand, I’ll just recap the yesterday’s instruction first:
- Penning down the inner-image you want to create in an elaborate way.
- Penning down the outer-image you wanted to show.
- Penning down how you want others to perceive you – others-image.
- Penning down the life-image – how you are perceiving, you wanted to perceive life and others.
Elaborately pen down all these four images in a very detailed way which your teamily can understand.
I wanted to define this word also:” Team + Family = Teamily”. I have created so many technical terms now, the new people, new visitors always feel at loss, because so many new Sanskrit words, technical terms.
Pen down such a way that your whole teamily understands your definition of inner-image, outer-image, others-image and life-image. Then next, ask your teamily to suggest to you what all the incompletions you need to complete to achieve the true identity you want to create. You describe what is the identity you want to create to your teamily. Now your teamily can suggest, your teamily can give you the feedback because the others-image and life-image is directly dependent on your teamily. Your inner-image and outer-image is dependent on you. The others-image, the completion of others-image and life-image is dependent on your teamily. Your teamily has to be a co-creator for your others-image and life-image. Let them give the suggestions – what all the completions you are supposed to do for you to co-create, for them to be a co-creator, for you to co-create the authentic inner-image, outer-image, others-image, life-image you want to create.
And today, after getting the feedback from all of them, you sit and contemplate, come to the final structure. Please understand, today you will come to the final, complete conclusion what is the authentic inner-image you want to create, outer-image you want to project, others-image you want to create and life-image you want to have and all the incompletions you need to complete. For example, you want to have the image that everyone should tell you are a great Yogi, every morning four o’clock you wake up and do Yoga; you want to have that image. Now the problem is, you can’t get up. You need alarm three times and three people to wake you up. Then what to do? Pen down, you have to complete with your sleeping pattern. Sometimes you may be carrying deep resistance towards life the reason for your withdrawal and celebrating sleep more than the body requires it, understand? Sleeping more than six hours for any healthy adult means you are celebrating sleep. Look in. May be you are using it as an alternative to create your dreams, alternative to experience Completion.
Understand, all your dreams are a temporary method of experiencing Completion. You try to experience Completion in a temporary way. Like a kid, if he wants to drive a car, he can’t get a real car; so he gets a toy car and plays with it and experiences certain temporary Completion. Same way, when you feel life is too big for you, you create dreams and experience temporary Completions. Maybe, if you are celebrating temporary Completion, you will be sleeping more than required; you will be celebrating the sleep.
I tell you, a man who has built a heavy body will be thousand times authentic than the man who has a useless body, because when you are working on the heavy body, body with these four qualities – stamina, flexibility, power and energy – so much of awareness and thinking has to happen, so much of Completion with your food pattern and sleeping pattern has to happen so much of Completion with your lifestyle has to happen. I am giving you one example. I am taking up Yogic Body as an example and describing how Completion, Authenticity can be arrived at and what all incompletions need to be completed.
Same way if your authentic outer-image is to project yourself as a person with a tremendous memory and ability to remember and quote various books, references and timely jokes in teamily dinner, if this is what you want to create, then you may have to work with the incompletion of not having memory and spontaneity and courage. Please understand, spontaneity is always the smell of courage. Friendliness is always the smell of Advaitha. Spontaneity is always the smell of courage. So, you may have to work with the incompletion of spontaneity and your decision to forget things. In the young age, when you are pressurized to remember something, you decide to forget. May be you will have to go back to that pattern and complete it.
So today you will pen down clearly. Please understand, from today we will start the real work of creating the right new identity. On Jaya Nama Samvatsara, the year called “Jaya”, we start the great process of creating the new identity. From today I am working with all of you. I want to create even a new identity for the whole Sangha. So understand every one of you should pen down the inner-image, outer-image, others-image, life-image – Mamakaara, Ahankaara, Anyakaara, Sva-Anyakaara – you want to create. And, after that, all the incompletions you need to work on. Incompletions related to inner-image and outer-image, you yourself will be able to pen down; you can take the input from your co-creators, but it is more or less your zone. But the life-image and others-image, you may be able to give your input, but it is more or less your co-creators zone. So today you will list out the whole thing and start the process formally.
I am repeating the homework:
Today you will make a detailed description; inner-image you want to create, outer-image you want to create, others-image you want to create, and life-image you want to create. Please understand, the four images you want to create anyone can know that, that is not a problem at all. No one can exploit you based on that. I wanted only that to be put openly. But your incompletions should be known only to your teamily. Your teamily should know your incompletions; only then they will be able to help you, support you. You should also know your whole teamily’s incompletions; only then you can be co-creator for them.
So, today, we will all finish the exact inner-image, outer-image, others-image, life-image we want to create and put it. You can put it in your wall and tag me in the Facebook. And you will pen down all the incompletions you need to complete to achieve this authentic identity with the support of your teamily and your intranalyzing.
