‘Unravel Your Authentic Self’
Do you find yourself a little lost, or feel disconnected? Is there an emptiness within that you cannot put your finger on?
Reality is that we are all on that treadmill called life – working towards big and small goals that shift constantly. And when we do get off that treadmill, we are still not happy within. Many a time we do not know who we are. Outwardly you recognize that person in the mirror, but deep within you know that it’s just a charade.
Why does this happen? Because we have spent all our time trying to become someone that the family or society will approve of. To become someone, you were not meant to be. Sometimes roles that we need to fulfill, and circumstances also push us in that direction. And in some years, we forget who we are or what we are capable of or what we were meant to be. This initially leads to angst and sadness, and then it finally manifests into physical ailments. So, we then start dealing with these issues. And the cycle goes on.
Living in the times of such duality as we do now, it is becoming increasingly crucial to make the connection with our true selves. That first step to befriend oneself, is the most difficult.
This realization kicks you off on a path of self-discovery and to a life that is true to YOU. True to your innermost talents, your innate wisdom and experiences of many lifetimes and incarnations. These are all embedded in you. Who you are today, is a sum of knowledge, talent, and wisdom you have carried and built across lifetimes. When you tap into these, you feel a sense of fulfillment and success is bound to be yours.
So how does one go about doing this? This is all part of a growth journey. There are many routes for this but must start somewhere. Some people take help, and some do it themselves because they have some idea about how to go about it. There is no right or wrong. It’s a process of aligning yourself to your true self. The choice of route is yours.
The bottom line is that leading a life of authenticity gives you fulfillment, high self-esteem, happiness, and well-being. When you are in alignment with your true nature and talents – you are most likely to pursue your passion and be successful and to be in meaningful relationships. This philosophy applies to all aspects of life.
You are lucky if you start this process of self-discovery early on. Developing self-awareness and intuition are important for this. You need to make a commitment to yourself to start and to continue. After that it becomes magical, and you get hooked because there is no bigger love than self-love. Its unconditional and true - and at its best, it’s the ultimate fuel you need to grow to become who you really are - your authentic self.
Are you ready to undertake this journey of self-discovery?
