At one point or another, everyone has uttered the words: “I am happy.” And: “I am upset.”
Notice what happens when you say: “I am [something].”
You are describing yourself.
Any words that follow the statement “I am” is your description of yourself.
Moreover, when we say, “I am [something],” it feels as if we really are that “something.”
It feels as if our entire being is happy, or upset, or anxious, or any other emotion we say we are.
But is that really who we are?
Most readers of my weekly blog have eliminated at least one belief using the Lefkoe Belief Process where they discovered that they are not merely a “creation,” who has beliefs and feelings and who takes action, they also are the creator of that creation.
Although the creation you think you are is comprised of your beliefs and feelings and what you do, the consciousness you really are is whole and complete, for whom anything is possible and nothing is missing.
Thus, it actually is more accurate to say: My creation has feelings, but I am not my feelings. My creation has beliefs, but I am not my beliefs.
