I never realized just how terrifying it is to get to know your true self on a deep level. How easy it is to come up with excuses that silence an inner knowing. How difficult it is to sit alone with just the sound of your breath. How desperate one can be to fill a void with something external. There is an element of shame associated with our hesitancy, as if we’d be punished for the indulgence. As a result, we lose sight of who we are meant to be, making choices that seem almost rehearsed.
When it comes to the big decisions in life, there are really only two options to consider: Yes or No. These types of decisions can be relatively easy to make when we know our truth. The certainty experienced is a telltale sign of rightness, even if a little scary. But how do we know what is true if we resist the opportunity for self-discovery? This is when we trick ourselves into believing we don’t know. This is the kind of denial that inevitably delays self-realization.
We could all stand to be more aware of the lies we tell ourselves, and we could all stand to trust that we do know more than we think. In order to hear your Soul’s calling, you have to be willing to sit and listen, as there are great messages of enlightenment waiting to be revealed. Don’t be afraid of the real you; if you can get past the need to regulate its whispers, you might just courageously set off on a path that is authentically yours, fears and all.
