Trying to be Authentic


Trying to be yourself doesn’t require effort. All these methods you’ve created to find yourself is much like a person looking for the location “here”. No matter where you go on or off this earth, you are always here.

To be authentic is actually effortless in the same way, but to plan and try to look a certain way is actually where trying begins. People “try” to look like something because they must feel pressure and judgement from themselves.

“…but to plan and try to look a certain way is actually where trying begins.”

Playing the game is felt by people and I’ll speak up if it gets out of hand. To bring certain people to an awareness of what they’re “trying” to do isn’t typically my thing, but I may speak up once again. The game of comparing and upping another is still a game of the ego.

To have a deep conversation about a spiritual nature, I feel I can hold my own, but I just let go when I’m not discussing it in a detailed post. To be that mindful of every word or phrase used seems like a personal prison. (Topic of free-will)

This situation happened the other night while discussing “healing”. At a deeper level you could just realize that “healing” happens because of the “patients” energy and not the “healer”. You could also have a deeper understanding of it by realizing that this is just part of the universal plan to have people meet, and then to have “healing” occur.

Whichever way you perceive it, from the micro to the macro view, that freedom belongs to you how to express that word and meaning to cater to the masses. To worry about the sticklers who want to spell check your every word to display superiority is a waste of anyone’s life unless that’s your job. People who have higher knowledge actually don’t look at petty corrections I’d hope…

The examples I’ve left here are basic everyday things to look at. Within your daily routines and living life, to be free and wildly expressive is a great release. You’re not “trying” to be someone because you already are that person. To micromanage your every word and policing your every movement because you’re afraid of judgement is a terrible mental prison.

“You’re not “trying” to be someone because you already are that person.”

To be honest, I did a lot of introspection before I let go into this space. I looked at myself and I accepted who I saw in the reflection. Being authentic is the most real version of yourself. Shedding the thoughts and efforts of “appearing” a certain way and trading it for simply “being” will be one of the greatest releases yet one of the greatest realizations.
