Almost every human feels insufficient and suffers from doubt.
No matter how much they may have accomplished or accumulated, there’s always something missing.
Most of us throughout our life have felt that we kept missing the mark. Perhaps we weren’t ambitious enough. As a female, I never aspired to female things like housekeeping, marriage, or children. I did try the middle one twice.
Many of us tried to fix and improve ourselves. We sought therapy, counselors, and confided our deepest insecurities to those who were willing to listen.
Maybe we took some courses in how to love ourselves more.
Nothing really seemed to work. We kept trying to fit into environments that were just not natural. We couldn’t understand why we were feeling so uncomfortable in a world that was not really meant to be comfortable.
It’s like walking around wearing clothes that are three sizes too small, and then trying to act like everything is just hunky-dory.
And we were envious of those people who seemed to fit in nicely. Who seemed to be so well-adjusted. Weren’t we naive?
Looking back, most of those people were sedated or had a drinking problem.
Fortunately I rebelled eventually against the status quo, and ended up paying the price. But so worth it.
But it took a long time to recognize that I actually wasn’t supposed to fit in, and that in fact my ‘mission’ this time around was to bust the rules wide open.
But the way to do that, ironically, was to accept all of this so-called reality, and my so-called life as it was.
But accepting it doesn’t mean that it’s natural. Or that it can be made comfortable with enough hard work. This time and space reality including our physical body is anything but normal. Anything but natural. Anything but comfortable.
That old saying, “if you’re walking around with a smile on your face you’re not paying attention” is so true. At least until you have fully embodied your authentic self.
Then you’re more apt to smile because you finally feel the freedom of knowing that this time and space reality is all just a juicy and beautiful illusion that you created just for the experience.
And that’s when life gets fun. When you have finally allowed who you truly and really are to be here. The mind is then behind the scenes, and sensuality becomes front row and center.
Not another person, a job, a career, or a cause, none of those. The compelling reason to stay here as your embodied self is to experience YOURSELF. Then everything begins to change.
Then you see your human, the body, and the world through the eyes of your authentic, eternal self. And then nothing is ever the same again.
