You wouldn’t do what I did.
Or would you?
Some would believe that they would do it.
Some would state with certainty even that they would.
Others would say well, I would do some of that,
but is all of it really necessary?
And others would simply drop their head and say, ” I wish I had the courage.”
And at the end of the day,
perhaps 1% would actually do what I have done.
And what is this that I am even speaking of?
This is spoken of in many self-growth paths.
Spiritual teachers of all time have told of the importance of becoming self- actualized.
But what does it mean?
Why is it so important?
And how do we go about achieving it?
Self-actualization refers to the achievement of one’s potential while self-realization refers to the achievement of one’s personality.
We must become self-realized to become actualized.
To truly understand ourselves, we must gain a grander scope of our personality. Something that many people today avoid, change to fit in with those around them and even fully abandon so that they can feel accepted. Creating a void within themselves and a distancing from their truth.
We must get right with our personality.
Our true personality that is.
Not the mask we wear.
And once we have done that then we can move forward and work on self-actualized.
Now we can have what would appear to be a successful life from the outside world. We can achieve fortune, family, health and experience. But if it is not achieved from a state of our truth then we will forever feel lost and empty.
Never truly happy.
We will remain in the void of who we were born to be and the potential of our SOUL.
So how do we become self-realized?
In short we have to step out of our comfort of the masks that we wear.
If we are to discover who we truly are we have to STOP being dependent on others for our safety, our happiness, our feeling of connectedness, worthiness, purpose, etc.
We have to start to learn ourselves.
And here is where I confidently state,
You wouldn’t do what I did.
I recall the time frame that I moved into my rebirth of self.
It was a time that my soul decided that I needed to realize who I truly was outside of everything that I had become for the world around me.
And with this I went on a mission to great measures to learn myself.
I knew that if I kept acting, speaking, thinking and doing the way that I had been for this time,
that my life results would never change.
I would remain lost in who I was.
I would continue to feel empty.
I would continue to search.
So I went on a mission of self-discovery.
I dove deep into my shadow lands.
I faced anything that scared the crap out of me.
I genuinely looked at my relationships,
all of them.
I asked if they truly made me happy or if I felt like I was just serving the other people so that I did not get abandoned?
I asked if I was living the life that I truly wanted?
Knowing that I was not.
My family life was not in harmony.
My health was having challenges.
My sex sucked.
My intimate relationship was not even a friendship any longer.
My finances were lacking.
I was struggling in every department.
And ignoring it and thinking that just putting my head down and pushing through was not working any longer.
Instead I was suffocating.
I had to make a change.
I had to know my truth.
And so I pushed my boundaries.
I stepped off the curb of life that I had myself on and I walked with blind faith into the uncharted territory of ME.
In this moment what I discovered was the very fact that I had been guilty of self-abandonment for my entire adult life.
I had fully stepped away from me.
And this was the only step I needed to take to become in alignment to my true personality.
Speak from a place of my authentic YES/NO.
This was the empowerment I was needing.
This was the learning of my true likes/dislikes.
This was where I found my courage.
It was where I realized my own style of genius.
It was the land of ME.
And guess what formed from this space?
Through no longer abandoning myself for others wishes,
for no longer ignoring my truth,
for no longer leaning on others to tell or prove to me that I was lovable, worthy, beautiful, etc. I also tapped into my SOUL.
I danced with divine inspiration,
and the more I allowed myself to just be me,
feel me and do me,
the moree inspired thought came,
and the more inspired action happened,
and the more I felt my full potential being achieved.
Today, I know when I get into phases of my life where I am feeling bored, lost or indifferent that all I am being guided to become aware of is that I have leaned out of this state of self-actualization and that in order to step back into it,
I need just look at where I am looking for the outside world to feed me instead of turning inward and KNOWING MYSELF in the now.
Because we are ever changing.
We are evolving,
and we must not abandon this new version of who we are in this moment just because it presents a different desire, a different view or feeling about life, love, or anything.
By receiving our new version of self,
we put worth on it.
Thus realizing our worthiness for the life that we have and the life that we are creating.
Where have you abandoned yourself?
If you are feeling lost in life, in love or any subject of life, it is time to ask this of yourself and to realize that you soul is requesting you to step out of the comforts of what is no longer serving you and embrace the magic of the unknown.
