Lately, I came across this topic several times and thought it would make sense to repost an article I wrote almost 2 years ago:
Life isn’t about being someone we think we should be only because it sounds good because others want us to be, or in order to fit into a certain image of society. A faked personality only confuses the people around you and yourself over time more and more because the real identity gets lost. Even when you feel misunderstood try even harder to be who you are because only that has the real power that makes your own true light shine and which bring the blessings in your life you wish for so hard. Life is about developing and expanding yourself.
I love Dr. Dyer’s quote. However, I am treated doesn’t automatically mean there is something wrong with me. It might only be something “wrong” with the way another person sees me because that is always subjective. As long as I stay true to myself and react in a way that fits me, I am on track. Trying to fit into an image of others in order to find acceptance, respect, and most of all love will take the ground I stand on. Things will come my way I don’t know how to deal with because I have no feeling for them because it is not part of my being! That confuses me even more and after a while, I might think something is wrong with me which makes me act even more opposite to who I am. But actually, I only lost the connection to that being within me with which everything is completely right.
Being spiritual means understanding that our true existence is eternal life energy. Living spiritually means that we are aware of our true being inside that body and understand why we are here. We are here to explore life and to explore different roles in our lives. I always like to compare it with a movie. We choose a role in this lifetime. We are actors and co-actors. And we are allowed to create stories: Dramas, comedies, romances, horror stories, thrillers,… and we even can have it all in one lifetime. We are here to experience this life in all its depth with all its feelings and with all its lessons. And therefore we need to be authentic and stand to our inner demons and to the illusion we call truth. Because that leads us to our destinations throughout this lifetime. The more authentic we are the more insightful every destination will become.
Living like a saint feels boring to me. This life has too much in store for me to be explored and to be felt in all its depth. Being spiritual means being aware of this and at the same time being aware of the blissful, precious being I am, and of being loved at all times of my existence. I only exist right because I am loved. Love is the origin of all existence (I wrote about it here). That means what you truly are is spotless energy of light and love. At the moment it lives in a physical body in order to explore a physical life and gain experience.
When you are aware of who you are then you automatically know and feel the connection with all that is and with this certain love that already and always is within you. You will probably change your attitude and your point of view and this will change your life dramatically. You not only understand your existence but also come to understand the existence of everybody else and don’t take everything too personally anymore. You will feel more love and understanding. But you also will start to live this lifetime to the fullest. You will follow your dreams since you know that you have come here to do it. You will be happy in a way you never knew it before – happy as a basic condition of yourSelf! Being you leads you to more and faster insights. Being you unleashes the divine power within you.
Only when you are authentic you are open to the spiritual being within you. It doesn’t mean you are a saint but it makes you experience this life in a completely different way. Who you really are is sacred – however path you walk in order to figure that out.
Be authentic – Be You – Be Love!
In Love and Light!
