The process of becoming something
In the process of becoming something, we forget who we truly are.
We don’t want to remain what we already are, we want to become something. This means that at each moment we are running away from who we truly are.
In current times, as most of us, millennia’s are entrenched into thinking that what we hold currently is not good- whether it is work, lifestyle or relationships.
What is common in each of these moments is our lack of acceptance.
But strangely universe doesn’t support us this way. It only supports us when we have a complete acceptance of what it has given us already.
As Carl Sagan says, we all are made of star stuff.
So, what makes you think that you are inseparable from the laws of the universe?
Unless you make peace with your current reality with complete acceptance and let the universe do its work, you can’t reach the ultimate satisfaction.
We don’t want to accept our current reality because we want to conform ourselves to what beliefs our current civilization holds even if they are harmful to us.
And, if one shows courage to go against social dogmas and beliefs, he is treated with contempt and even ridiculed of as a failure.
But as change begins with self, try to become that light which the universe wanted you to be.
Our erroneous habit to make shadow goals
It is our natural habit to assume that true horizon is at a distant future. Even if we reach that horizon, we don’t enjoy it perhaps due to the habit of our mind.
This causes us to make some new horizon again.
Soon, time passes by and it’s only in the deathbed that one realizes how futile his life was.
Though goals sprouting out of necessity are worth to work for but some are shadow goals which arise only from our ego mind.
And as is always seen ego is self-perpetuating until we recognize who we truly are and separate ourselves from our mind.
Nature is systematic
Mother Nature, our creator, is very wise in this regard. You can’t exempt yourself from its rules.
As Osho says, existence has created us unique if it had to create more Jesus, Buddha or Mahavira it would have created them itself.
When it is making you unique, why would it want you to be something else?
The exact solution
What I think is that most of our problems are self-created partially because of our mistaken belief that we are incomplete, unworthy, or should compete with someone in order to make us worthy.
And since our inner reality creates our outer reality, we get the same validation in the form of events or scenario’s which to make us or amplify the same feeling of incompleteness.
So the solution is to be who we truly are and appreciate our unique life path so that we get the full support of the universe.
Reaching this moment we truly are separable from our mind, since it is only ego driven mind which makes us feel incomplete.
This is the moment when the universe can easily direct us to our life purpose and that is where ultimate satisfaction is.
How to be who you are?
Once again like the rest of my posts, I will again say awareness is the most important tool which we can use( what is working for me )
This is the only available power through which you can analyze when your goals are ego-driven or when they are sprouted within your core.
Goals driven from ego can’t give you ultimate satisfaction
Life is continually orchestrating scenarios in your life to divert your attention to your true life purpose.
That’s why it is said to allow the life to work through you and appreciate your process of becoming
This is what Michel singer did in this famous book “the surrender experiment”
Just have a belief in your uniqueness. Just recognize that purpose that has been uniquely designed for you.
Simple tip: You heart, again and again, longs to do what is your life purpose in this lifetime as your soul grows in that direction
As basher says, just spent even a little bit of time in this direction daily and soon you will start seeing changes.
Being who you truly are, accepting your past your emotions acknowledging that voice separate from your head is who you are.
