First and Foremost: To Our Real Self. We aren't always taught or encouraged to identify what Our Real Self is, How to honor it, How to Share it. We are conditioned to be a version of honest to others, even at the cost of our Self. We are conditioned to "do the right thing" and not hurt others, even at the cost of our Self. We are conditioned to follow superficial honesty. We are socialized to live at this level. When we make a lifetime of living this way, the life will eventually crumble and so will you.
We are being required to show up in our lives, claim them, honor them, appreciate them and share them, Deeply Honestly. It is not going to be comfortable to live superficially, politically correct,in this manner any longer. People are going to need to BE deeply honest with themselves and others and allow space for others to BE or flee. Living deeply Alive, Authentically, Honestly IS the way to bring True Abundance FOR ALL, satisfying life, returning the Sacred Reverence to this gift, in service to ALL humanity. Simple not easy.
It can be painful, when you no longer create false identity or masks to play sharades with others and you are rejected or not accepted by another it can be painful and tempting to protect this Self away from this happening. It is very painful to reject and not accept yourself. Honesty heals the pain. Life isn't about false realities and others acceptance, it's about returning the gift of your unique expression of your source that was gifted to you to share. Pain is a part of life, yet it is as all of life, temporary. When we try and avoid it, which we can not, we will create it's permanence not allowing the Natural temporary shifting.
Go deeply and find your Real Self and share it with others, deeply honestly. This is the Natural thing to do, although it may hurt others as you shift from "right" to Natural, it will not be as damaging to Self and others in the long term. When you betray yourself, you betray others and this is more painful than the honesty. When you live a life lie, the Natural flow of life vital energy can not flow and the life does not grow. It is slow miserable death to Self and others. When we are Real We show up as ourself for others according to The Plan.
Live Alive, Live Deeply Honestly, BE REAL, as the velveteen rabbit says:
“Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'
'Does it hurt?' asked the Rabbit.
'Sometimes,' said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. 'When you are Real you don't mind being hurt.'
'Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,' he asked, 'or bit by bit?'
'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.”
