The first of September’s posts I wrote for PsychicsForetell.
There is nothing more beautiful you can be than your authentic self. It was what you were made to be. It is that simple. And that complicated.
We all seek meaning and purpose in our lives. Unfortunately, so many of us are locked into what that meaning and purpose is supposed to look like. We’ve all been sold the same idea of what a successful life should be. And we spend a lot of time and money trying to get that life. But how can the world know our purpose in life? How can the world know who we are supposed to be when we, each alone, are the only one of us there is?
That realization can be terrifying or liberating depending on the light we receive it in. When we realize that no one can tell us our path, not truly, we have the opportunity to take back our power. Some can help us find our path. And some can’t. Because no one knows who or what we are supposed to be. They can’t know. Only we can.
Somewhere deep in our hearts we have always known our Truth. At different times and places in our lives I’m sure we all have honored and ignored it. We have had times we have listened to our hearts because we knew we couldn’t live with ourselves if we didn’t. And we have all had times that we’ve quieted our heart’s song so we could try to make something that didn’t fit us work. Because we thought it was the right thing to do. We have all done things that we knew weren’t true to us because it was easier than disappointing another. And sometimes on our path we feel like if we could just deaden that feeling that we were meant for something else, we could be content with what we have.
We sometimes allow the opinion of others, well meaning or not, to shape us. At times, even contort us. All the while our hearts whisper, “Follow me instead.” When we finally listen to our own good counsel, we start to remember who we are and recognize who we are not and understand through it all we are still learning and evolving. And in that space we can allow ourselves to be ourselves. And that alone is our sole purpose. That is our soul’s purpose. To be.
