Know Thyself

I’ve spent time in Egypt exploring temples and visiting sacred sites throughout the country. One of my favorite places is the Temple of Luxor. Seeped in thousands of years of spiritual initiation and study, I felt a deep sense of peace and well-being there. When I was exploring the Luxor Temple, I encountered thousands of orbs against the night sky, many captured in pictures like this one. All helping us to see that there is so much more to life than what we see with our physical eyes!

The Luxor Temple is a magical place, where one can learn a lot about modern life! 

As you walk into the temple of Luxor; you encounter two parts. In ancient Egypt, the outer temple was designed for beginning initiates. And the inner temple was where one could enter, only after proven ready to acquire the higher knowledge and insights.

My Guides tell me that one must know the outer temple before you can truly know the inner temple.

In this sense, think of the inner temple as a state of being where you are in harmony with the Divine within and around you, and so all is well!  Higher knowing and peace are yours because you know who you are!

The outer temple is the material realm, what we can experience with the five physical senses.

When you think about it, our life journey is like the Inner and Outer Temples of the ancient Temple of Luxor.  

In our youth, we immerse ourselves in the outer temple, the world of building careers, relationships and acquisitions. It’s a world of doing and outward focus.  

And then something happens that takes us into the inner temple.  Perhaps we get disillusioned with our work,  or things no longer hold the same appeal. This is an awesome time for us!  

For this call for deeper meaning takes us into the  Inner Temple… so we can see who we truly are! And it is so good that we are called there!

One of the proverbs in the Outer Temple of Luxor is “The body is the house of God.” That is why it is said, “Man know thyself.”

In the Inner Temple, one of the many teachings is “Man, know thyself … and thou shalt know the gods.”

hmmm… so who are you?  

In this time of  “busyness” and outward focus, we can forget.  When we over-identify with the material realm of doing and making things happen, life will feel hard. And you may find yourself struggling with long TO DO lists and the illusion of scarcity of time.

Which is why it is so important to nurture a daily awareness and practice that takes you into your inner temple. This is where the magic happens, that creative wisdom which allows you to leap tall building in a single bound! (Yes, I saw Man of Steel this past weekend!)

And as you dwell in the Inner Temple, you come to know who you truly are .. a powerful creator, so beautiful, so confident, so at peace, with precious gifts to share, a unique and precious Being, with a powerful message to share!

In all things that you choose and do, let them come from that higher place of knowing that is within you!  
Walk in beauty,
