We live in a shame based culture where we feel it necessary to hide behind false realities of who we are to please people or to gain approval to fit in. We dress a certain way, carry ourselves a certain way, work on certain jobs, date specific people, live in particular places, drive a certain car etc… to appear the way we think others see us. The fear of maintaining a certain image is driven by fear and no matter how much we appear to be one way or another we are tormented inside because we are not being authentically who we truly are.
You are here to live an abundant experience, but having things is not the proof of your abundance. Abundance includes more than just the things you possess. Your wealth or lack of it have absolutely nothing to do with who you are. You are fully abundant by birthright meaning that you are here to live an experience filled with every good thing including possessions. That means your joy should be full. It means you have no need to hide behind a facade because you don’t have a relationship, or a job, or feel you are missing something that others would think you are supposed to have. You have exactly what you are supposed to have according to what you believe.
What you own and possess do not make you who you are. Who you date and where you live do not make you who you are. Nothing that you can attain can make you who you are. No amount of airs or pretense, covers of clothing, beauty masking, possessions and money can make you who you are. You were born exactly as who you ARE to BE. You were created as GREATNESS and who you are has absolutely nothing to do with your educational level, who you date, what job you have or how much money you spend on your clothes and your cars. You were created as who you are, and your job now is to simply learn to BE just that!
Your possessions and accomplishments are just things. You are not authentically BEING YOU when you lead with what you have or buy to cover what you don’t. When you are not living authentically you are living in fear of anyone discovering you don’t believe in yourself. You have chosen to cover your fear with things, which prevents you from LIVING in YOUR TRUTH.
Living in your Truth means you are confident in who you are and have great love for yourself. Living your Truth means you realize your shortcomings and know that they are simply part of the Divine Design that guides you into higher awareness of who you are. Living Your Truth means you are free of the “keep up with the Jones” mentality and living your L.I.F.E. in the fullness of your own light.
You do not have to do anything in particular, in any particular way to prove who you are. You do not have to be better than anyone else because there is only one you. So who can you be better than? There can be no competition with anyone except for yourself because the only one you are here to prove more to is YOU. You are here to simply JUST BE. To just BE exactly who you are and allow yourself to grow into the full awareness of your own truth.
Other people will only see the facade you construct. Contrary to thought, they can also see how afraid and scared you are behind all the smoke screens of clothing, cars, education and possessions that you may attempt to lead with. This does not mean you should not have these things. It means you place the value where it is supposed to be placed; on yourself, not on accomplishments and things.
Spirit is not interested in competition. Spirit does not compete. IT is always the ONLY ONE! There is no thing on this planet, not even evil, that Spirit competes with. So if you are Spirit in human flesh, who are you competing with to be number ONE when we are all ONE with the ONLY ONE?
You are here to JUST BE the ONE YOU! It is time for you to give yourself permission to BE DIVINE. It is time to give yourself permission to know that it is OK to stumble and fall. It is time to give yourself permission to be upset and disappointed, to be sad and fearful. It is time to give yourself permission to be broke or to be wealthy. It is time to give yourself permission to live L.I.F.E. in the fullness of every moment knowing that whatever experience you are living, you do not have to hide it from the world. You have to LIVE IT! Experience IT! If it is not what you want it to be, you have to know that it is teaching you exactly who you are so you can sit back and simply JUST BE!
