To put it lightly the ego or who you think you are, think you should be, pressure you put on yourself, pressure put on you by others, your consciousness, is an asshole. It’s always tricking you to walk down meaningless roads and pursue meaningless goals, telling you to acquire shit to fill a a void that cannot be filled and trick you into thinking you’ll be happy in the future or with a certain object and so on. Essentially your ego does everything in it’s power to distract you from realizing your true nature, your true self.
If you are in harmony with your true self and the universe, the creator, spirit or however you’d like to word it you should feel alive, vibrant and harmonious every day and if you don’t well than maybe somethings off. Your true self is intuition, inner knowing, and guidance. It is your deepest connection with who REALLY ARE! There are many people in history who have found that place and were kind enough to leave a road map of how they found it. Be aware that the journey must be walked alone, you must discover your own way and put in your own work.
Here are 3 simple steps to uncovering your authentic self and living a life of more love, passion, peace and joy!
1. What do you love the most?
The first step is to make a giant list of what you love most, what things interest you? What are you passionate about? What makes you smile? What are you curious about? What would you do if you could do anything and not fail? What kinds of people do you love being around?
The best compass to finding your true self is LOVE. What do you love about life? Grab a pen and piece of paper and make a massive list NOW!
2. Shut the F”#K UP and Listen . . . to Yourself!
As previously expressed your consciousness or ego is a real piece of crap and if you never learn how to quiet your mind you’re never going to be the leader of your own life. You must learn how to listen to your intuition and if your mind is always distracted and thinking about work, checking Facebook, stressing over finances the kids, etc you’re never going to get REAL answers. You hold the answer to your happiness and joy, but you must learn how to connect with it. Meditation is one way of accomplishing this, a simple walk in nature is another, engage in any activity where you can be fully present. Learn to quiet your mind because deep within are the answers you’re looking for. You will never find meaning externally that much I can promise, everything you’re looking for, real fulfillment can only be found within!
3. Master Perspective
Connection to your true self, the universe, happiness, joy, peace and love can be accessed at any moment. Nothing prevents that connection but YOU! Learn to be present, completely satisfied and grateful for wherever you are. If you can learn to be happy with nothing, you’ll be happy with everything and acquiring useless shit won’t matter as much to you.
No matter what circumstance you’re in, you get to choose your perspective and feeling. Show yourself love and respect, show everyone you meet love and respect, be grateful. Whenever you’re feeling a negative emotion STOP and in that moment ask yourself, “So what do I want?” If you’re stressed, you’ll want to feel relaxed, if you’re angry you may want to let it go and feel at peace with the situation.
You have to remember that you’re the master of your mind and the master of your life. You decide how you feel, you decide how you live your life, you decide what happens. Perspective is what empowers you as a co-creator of this universe. Refuse to play victim and empower yourself!
There is nothing that you need to be, do, have or learn in order to find harmony within yourself, it is always available to you. Accessing that powerful state is simply a conscious choice to be aware of the moment, to tune in, and choose how you want to direct your focus and perspective. As A.J Muste said, “There is no way to peace, peace is the way.” You are perfect, harmonious and whole just as you are, learn to tune in!
May love, joy and passion fill your life!
