It has claimed not just the health, well-being, sense of belonging, consciousness, purpose and destiny of its victims, yet also their very lives. A tyrant so clever and efficient it need not exert any of its own effort or energy to fulfill upon its devious plan.
It simply relies on the apathy, denial,
unconsciousness, self-righteousness and cognitive dissonance of its
subject. What is spawned from this malevolent blend of self-oblivion
is what every human being possesses, the false personality.
It is analogous to cancer clusters
growing in the human body, undetected until the tumors have
established residency in the organs or tissues of the unsuspected.
And when it has been discovered, the first obstacle to overcome is
the greatest, the denial of its very existence.
As our human conditions amass, we
eventually begin to sacrifice our personal power both unconsciously
and unconditionally. We are become hopeless, anxious and
disempowered, fatalities of our own circumstances, environments and
If "cause" is the requirement of our freedom, "effect" in our society is in great supply.
The human race is constantly responding
to stimuli being broadcasted from an authoritarian structure based
on belief, intelligence, entertainment and a hierarchical class
rule. Yet, it is certainly not the external impulses that influence
us the most. It is our false personality that renders us prisoners
to our selves.
We tend to put more stock into the disempowerment of others, and ourselves, believing this is our "real" power rather than accepting the truth of ourselves.
We are our own inspiration.
In order for us to transcend its intricate matrix, we need to become our own observer. Only then may we behold the great degree of influence and impact our false personality imposes upon us.
We must step outside of our beliefs,
perceptions, expectations and entitlements to awaken and sustain our
connection with our true personality.
The qualities of ourselves we free when
we are at our most genuine and vulnerable. It is the intuitive
wisdom of ourselves we experience when we need to remember who we
were before our conversion into society. Our true personality is our
innocence, kindness, acceptance, potential, inspiration and
universal need to relate and belong.
The true personality transcends the very nature and existence of reality. Its mere presence transforms the realism and dynamic of the environment in which it inhabits. Its expression is engaging, intimidating, exhilarating and revolutionary. Our true personality thrives upon the potential to explore, discover and express higher levels of consciousness and infinite energy.
It is the emblem of eternal creativity and possibility. When we are living from our true personality, our false personality ceases to exist. A gateway to higher realms of being is opened.
Our true personality is the key to the
greatest expression of our being in this reality, our authenticity.
After all, they seem to be the same thing, yet they are not.
Authenticity is not just a choice; it is an expression, a way of being.
It begins and ends with fulfilling
upon what we say we are going to do and who we are being while we
are in action. It is our integrity, our commitment and all for which
we stand in our lives. That which inspires us sources our energy,
our focus, our intention and leads to the fulfillment of our
It is the expression of our willingness and dedication to transform not just our own lives, yet the lives of others. It isn't about succeeding and surviving; it is about thriving and empowering others to flourish as well. It is the philosophy that when one person creates powerful insights for themselves, the community to whom they belong stands to benefit.
How can we discover and experience this
quality of realization if it is not a shared endeavor? Authenticity
is lived for the advantage of the many at the cost of the false
If our consciousness relates us with our true personality, then authenticity unites us with our soul. When we choose to free ourselves from our false personality by being authentic, we are making an investment in the vision of who we truly are.
We are living it as only we are meant, to the best of our possibility.
Authenticity is the cornerstone of transforming ourselves and ultimately the world. When we commit to living an authentic life, we are devoting ourselves to making a difference.
We are the source of our creative expression, benevolence, relatedness and love.
This is the truest realization of life.
