  • 12. “Is that really me who I have known all my life, is that I?”The significance of our earliest memory
  • 13. The You are I Game Object: To find your earliest memory Relax – calm and awake Probably somewhere between ages 2 & 4 (or earlier/later) If you‟re already familiar with this memory, let it rest and orientate yourself Some triggers…. An accident or illness? Being in bed, a blanket, pyjamas? An item of clothing? A food or cup, plate? The bathroom or other room, furniture, a view from a window/doorway? Parents, siblings? A visiting relative/family friend or their house/garden?A celebration or festive occasion? A journey, a vehicle? A Game, a toy? Play group, nursery, infant school room/play area, playmate? Does a particular sense trigger the memory? Is the memory confused with a photograph/family story? Having difficulty? Pause „somewhere near’ the memory. What most „stands out‟ in the memory?
  • 14. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! YOU ARE I When your enduring “I” was first able to “hold up a mirror”, look back into the past and recognise itself “in reflection” as our self image or everyday ego.Leading up to thispoint we begin to feelsome awareness of this.It remains for a whileas a feeling – a child‟sfeeling, but thebehavioural effects ofwhich can be observedby parents/carers.
  • 15. Up until this point, the enduring “I” had no means to identify itself. Now it sees itself “reflected” in those permeating formative forces upon which is impressed memory.My “I” stream is not yet flowing full.It will continue to incarnatefor many years yet.But now there is anawareness of self.Less of “me, me wants…”, “Emily wants…”More of “I want…”
  • 16. During our first six or seven years our formative forces are bound up in the extraordinary energy of physical developmentThere is significant brain growth – continuing even throughto our teens – its form fashioned both spiritually and by way of imitation as a platform for soul development.
  • 17. The formative body forces upon which is impressed memory are still enfolded. Memories in our earliest years tend to be remembered as islands of separate memories – “island memories”.
  • 18. These formative forces will later unwind,becoming apparent towards about age six or seven, when a “storyline” memory of experiences begins to be woven.
  • 19. In our first 2 or 3 years our memory, later to flow in our formative body to help us with everyday thinking and to associate one thing with another, is bound up with physical growth.As we grow older, senseperception and thinkingbecome imperceptiblyintegrated. In our first 2 or 3 years it is easier to observe the “kissing gate” of sense perception and thinking as two separate processes. Parents/carers do our thinking for us.
  • 20. We want, quite literally, to get hold of everything, take hold of the world. We move towards everything, find an affinity with everything, a s y m p a t h y with everything.It is as if we have broken free. We move towards the future. We have a w i l l i n g to be.And yet in what we call memory,it is as if we are still fast asleep. It is as if we had an aversion or a n t i p a t h y for the past and we move away from it with a will.
  • 21. Then “me wants” becomes “I want”We begin to wake up in the activity of remembering.
  • 22. “Please can we go swimming again today?!”As our „storyline‟ memory emerges and we remember one experience after another, the unconscious willing impulsesof our early years takes on a more „outward‟ character – a drive for more experience. The forces of our formative body are unfolding.
  • 23. With our own storyline memory our own t h i n k i n g slowly begins to emerge. As we move into puberty andour inspirational body forces unfold,our willing becomes clothed in desires more characteristic of what we love or hate. Willing as impulse becoming Willing as drive Willing as desire later perhaps becoming Willing as motivation tending to give way in later years to more reflective thinking
  • 24. And yet – active, deep within, beneath any outward manifestation of our willing lives a karmic willing for purpose, clarity of purpose. But often, like an experience we cannot remember, we can be asleep to it.Weaving selfless f e e l i n g and loving inspirationinto our thinking and so influence our hidden will paves the way for perceiving the karmic thread being woven by our enduring “I”.
