My Authentic Self

My life is what I made it to be, but my life has not made me, because me is my true authentic self!

My soul made visible to all around me is my authentic self. A transparent soul is my perfect gift to the world around me.

I was enslaved to fear in its many forms and searched for freedom from this prison. One day I found freedom, alongside fear, in the one place I never before looked – both were in my mind!

From very young, I had learned fears of many sorts: failure, rejection, abandonment, and poor self-image to name a few. Unknowingly I developed a defense system against these in my mind. I made up all manner of stories about my life and who I really was. Many of these thoughts in my mind, I acted out physically and as a result, I behaved in a ‘larger-than-life’ manner.

In my adult life I surrounded myself with people and material wealth as a means of proving to myself and others that I was someone that I wasn’t; a typical ‘Walter Mitty,’ probably best described my behavior. This conduct had disastrous consequences in the end.

Many years later I was to discover the difference between who I perceived myself to be and the real me. How I saw myself was not who is really was.

The real me is a person, who is untainted by his upbringing, or his life experiences. In reality, the authentic me is a courageous, peaceful, self-assured person of integrity. He fears nothing because he has no understanding of the word, ‘fear.’

I understand, by what the Guru’s say – we all have an authentic self, deep within us – waiting to be discovered.

When I discovered my true identity, the experience was exhilarating, my true identity was absolutely authentic, it needed no burnishing! On that day I bade fear farewell and have never looked back since.

Sapientiam Quaerere

wisdom 2How many of us are looking for something?

Wealth, health, longevity, better looks, more knowledge, better employment, more successful business. These and countless others are on most of our shopping lists.

Have we any idea the extensive lists of motivation, training, coaching, education and self-help that’s out there, waiting for us to collect our share and drop into our shopping basket?

To say nothing of all the books, magazines, videos and such that are all offering:

Bigger, better, best….

But there are no offers out there to teach wisdom.

Ah yes there are those spiritual denizen’s who will lead you to the bible where resides much wisdom and in fact the only guide as to where wisdom is found.

But wisdom cannot be taught and whilst we can be wisely taught, we cannot Wisdombe taught wisdom.

Looking at history, we can come up with many names of people who were wise beyond their peers; just to name a few of these:  Mahatma Gandhi, Aristotle, Socrates, Solomon, Jesus of Nazareth, Gautama Buddha, Florence Nightingale, Ben Franklin, Albert Einstein, Nelson Mandela.

I doubt that any of these had graduate certificates on wisdom, yet they were, by any standards, wise.

The simple fact is that wisdom can only be found.

Where the is wisdom found?

Wisdom is found in our innermost being, where those that search for it, find it, listen to it and apply what it tells them to do in their lives. 

There’s more…. A person who is wise attracts others; those who desire what the wise person has. These begin to seek and because the law says, “Seek and you will find” – they find it.

Imagine a world with only a quarter of its population filled with wise people….

Wisdom calls aloud in the street. She utters her voice in the public squares. She calls at the head of noisy places. At the entrance of the city gates, she utters her words: How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? How long will mockers delight themselves in mockery, and fools hate knowledge?”
