Exploring Gender Identity

All The World Is A Stage

on November 16, 2010

We all play roles in our lives all the time and this includes the one you are playing right now.  It is important to clarify your roles in each situation of life so that you may more fully experience life.  Even more important is to realize that you are not the roles that you play.  It is easy to get caught up in role playing and believe this is who you are. 

The daily social roles are the easiest to get stuck on, such as mother, daughter, grandmother, spouse, partner, friend, and caregiver.  The occupational roles such as Doctor, Lawyer, Mason, or Chef are also something that many identify with and this can be both stifling and liberating depending on how you view them. 

“You” is a broad term and as you grow spiritually you realize that there is a lot more to “you” than you realized.  There is the individual you, the roles you play as you, the larger you that is connected through community and there is the Universal One you, which is the only “real” you there is. 

Knowing this is important because if you get caught up in a role it will rule your life instead of you being in charge.  It is like putting the cart before the horse.  When you know who you are and come from this core place you always have a strong foundation on which to stand. 

You are not this occupation or that social role but a Divine Child of the Creator and an heir to the throne.  You are a humble servant of the Most High.  How you serve now can take any form and will change often from moment to moment.  You may be a beautiful woman, mother, spouse, daughter, and lawyer all at the same time!  The trick is to allow yourself to be each fully while in that role.  While on the phone with your daughter be the mother that you are fully and completely.  As soon as you hang up with her you are back to being the lawyer so you give that your all.  A co-worker compliments you on being beautiful and in that moment you experience gratitude and humility.  The joy of the moment will stay with you but your role in the next moment will change back to being the top lawyer. 

The important aspect of role playing is when you are in a role you allow Divine Spirit to flow through in that role and no other.  When in another role you focus only on that role.  It is in the moment living that truly empowers you to live your life to the fullest.  As we all know, there is only one time and that is now.
