How We Unintentionally Avoid Our Authentic Selves

Many of us think that superior coping mechanisms, and the ability to pick ourselves up by the bootstraps after every loss or complication is the ultimate masterful goal.   We think of ongoing "doing" as success. However, action, achievement and ignoring our emotions is often how we distance from our authentic self.    Yes, we do need to function in our lives, no matter what life throws at us.   Yet, too often we value function over feeling.  We ignore ourselves.   We leave reservoirs of unresolved "schmutz" in our creative mechanism.   In that "ignorance" we mute the sound of our own higher wisdom instructing us about our next steps.  We miss the signs to the healing.  We skip the exit that will take us to abundance, and we decide love should be conditional.

Western culture tells us that mastering the achievement model is the answer to a happy life.   It also tells us that being able to press on and suck up our emotional wounding is the answer to a happy life.   Our friends and family will tell us 'YOU'RE SO AMAZING."  We are validated for not feeling our life.  We are fed two competing messages.  One, be authentic. Two, only in appearance.   We must be well kept, slim, have a great smile, an overflowing bank account, while our life falls apart.

This false ideology forces us into a psychically shattered existence.  The ancients called it "THE DISEASE OF DUALITY."  An egoic life.  Sometimes a spiritual life.   Rarely shall the two meet.  We do this because stimulation is our drug of choice.   We prefer to stimulate ourselves and avoid anything uncomfortable than acknowledge our feelings of unworthiness, grief or fatigue.  We press on.
  
The problem with all this achieving, action, and distancing from our potent emotions, is that our true creative intentions are pushed through these filters diluting our most authentic and precious reasons for living.   No matter how hard we try to use our best intentions, our best creative energy, and best heart, we still fall short in our outcomes.  We are not happy.   Our best intentions were polluted with false idea energy.  External achievement energy.  The external is what happens as a result of the internal awareness.   We keep getting it backwards.   Stimulation suspends us in limited thinking.

We become identified with the egoic experience as the valuable experience.  I call it "the tail wagging the dog."  The tail effectively slaps duct tape over our soul's mouth silencing her wisdom.  I am all for the most benevolent life one can have.  I am in full support of enjoying the fruits that life can bear.   The only fruit that keeps on giving is that our awareness of connection to each other as one, and to divine source as the giver.  Without that connection or awareness of that connection we feel separate from each other, and independent.  We feel alone.   Our thoughts and our choices are all about "me me me."   In the law of abundance, if we want to receive, we have to receive from a perspective that all can receive, even those we despise.

If you want your creations to give you what you want them to give you, stop moving.  Be still.   Listen to yourself.  Then, and only then will you begin to create from authentic creative source energy.
