Now, how to get to our innate core, our divine essence of our pristine being in order to find inner peace?
First, we need to come to a rest, to a change of perspectives: away from the predominant external societal "THEY-expect-me-to-act-so-and-so"-view…..
Let’s start with rising self-approval. Instead of expecting or even being depending on the approval of others. Stop being a workaholic in ticking off all those to-do-lists, physically or mentally. Stop being a rushaholic in constantly doing and achieving. Drop the need for acceptance, approval, appreciation and esteem by third parties, which only finally ends in a spiral downward self-fullfilling-prophecy….
Secondly, we need to self-reflect our for so many years "socialized" and thereby thought-to-be our "own" way….
Forget the past! Just BE as you are now! Don’t try to invert, reverse or “change” the past, rather accept it as a has-been adventurous challenging journey to unknown islands, now heading towards peaceful shores…. Stop searching, fleeing, resisting, rushing – just accept your floating……
Thirdly, we need to find a way to de-tangling our sails and ropes, heading “back” to our pregiven divine safe haven (before we started to set our sails for the socially wanted and accepted sail racing cups!!)….
Take some time out! Look who you really are and what you are supposed to be by others. Descry your social, ethnical and religious entanglements and look for the “sponsorship brands” you are racing for…
Are you reeling and cranking on an external crew boat fully adhering to the commands of a medal-maniac skipper? Or is this rather your own “life-boat”?
Reserve your SELF some moments of calm. Float. Don’t sail on a too close reach…..
The more we are exploring these inmost sail routes – Caution: including temporary doldrums! – the more we get safe and secure with ourselves…far-off the dead-straight straits of modern societal hover speed boats which only run us over (and all other life too)…..
Finally, we will arrive at our inner confidence, if not wisdom, that our inmost core of being and our dignity (as well as the ones of our friends and partners) are truly proper and our virtous actions are thereby sage. And we will be confident that our solid inmost core can not be diminished by the indifference of others….
Rather we will find that true love is to respect the uniqueness of each other person, to learn from each other and to help each other in thriving and prosper in dignity and virtuous actions.
This will help to distinguish us as unimitable personalities from just being anytime replaceable persons.
Hence, just BE your SELF. Comtemplate and ponder on the questions which life poses you – not vice versa. Build your own response.ibilities and you will start living meaning.fully. Stop listening your socially and educationally “trained” consciousness, rather follow your own quiet conscience….
Fight your inmost war of self-a.war.eness (see my respective other blog) instead of fighting subliminal futile wars of intellectual, ideological, ethnical, social or religious supremacy, because even if you might temporarily "win" some fights you will the same time lose your SELF, i.e. your divine identity..... You will eventually lose everthing: your dignity, the innate meaning of your life and by that your ability to disseminate loving light as a true lighthouse……Because each lighthosue needs a firm rock to rest on - ant that is your humble yet positive self-appreciation as a unique personality......
It surely is a long, winding and stony yet worthwhile path, so always remember:
Soul-eyes which do not cry, do not see….. ;-)
