The Self is neither small nor big; it is both simultaneously. Your spirit is like a drop in the spiritual energy ocean, yet, it is an integral and significant part of the whole.
You have a spiritual Self that animates your body and infuses your thoughts and feelings. Your language is limited to what you perceive and descriptions are one dimensional based on the perceptions people comprehended at the time. Thus, only metaphors approach the expressions that give a true sense of a spiritual nature.
The paradox lies in opposing concepts and perceptions, all of which are true at the same time other concepts and perceptions are operating. In the context of harmonizing the opposites, you begin to know the wonders of the spirit.
The Self is neither small nor big; it is both simultaneous. Although, your spirit seems small, separate or disconnected part of the whole, it is still comprised of the same things and can become part of the vast spiritual ocean. Your spirit seems to inhabit your body like a passenger in a vehicle, however, at the same time is not bound by your body.
Spirit can reach across the miles to touch the heart of past, present and future, or expand to become one with all energies. You might feel small and insignificantly young when you look up at the stars, yet you are made of the same basic elements – Energy. Looking at the stars is a mere reflection of what is going on within each atom and cell of your being. Your spirit is ever renewing, yet ageless and eternal. Thus, the Self is not new or old; both are simultaneous.
Your spiritual Self is neither small or big nor new or old. You may experience life as good or bad, right or wrong, happy or sad; however, this is the experience of the linear world of dualities, not the truth of your spiritual nature.
By going within to touch the eternal and changeless energy at your core, you can go beyond the contrasting metaphors to the experience of oneness. In that connection you can know big and small, new and old, movement and stillness. By accepting the paradox of life, you open yourself to the fullness of your whole being – Who you truly are.
