We fill the cup of truth…

“What can I do to always remember who I really am?” – Juan Ramon Jiminez

Most of our time is spent searching, looking for ways to discover who we really are. We continually run into mountains, cross rivers, search the far seas, fall into the arms of strangers, all to be shaken into remembering.  And some of us try to lead simpler lives, hoping to practice how not to forget.  But part of our journey is this forgetting and this remembering.  It is a special part of what makes us human.

So what can we do?  Well, it is no secret that slowness remembers and hurry forgets; that softness remembers and hardness forgets; that surrender remembers and fear forgets.

It is beautifully difficult to remember who we really are.  But we help each other every time we fill the cup of truth and hold each other up after drinking from it.

I gathered these inspiring words from The Book of Awakening by Mark Nepo.

Share your inspiration. What keeps you remembering who you really are?

    I guess I’m shallow. I don’t care who I really am. I’m just trying to make it through the damn day.

    Love you.
