“Know Thyself” seems self explanatory right?
While most all of us have heard this aphorism and we still continue to underestimate the importance of what authentically “knowing” truly means.
We spend more time on other people’s priorities and far too little scratching the surface of knowing who we really are or truly taking into account what we have the potential to become. Don’t get me wrong, being selfless is how we live and lead with our Love, but it’s time to take inventory of ourselves.
No matter where you go, there you are. What happens when the mask chips?
We move through life creating pockets of who we want to be or what we want to be from our earliest memory. We develop and create masks in order to shield, protect, influence or dictate who we want others to see or respond to. Some of us invent wonderfully ornate and decorative masks by design. They become so elaborate and laborious that these particular masks eventually begin to dictate how we move through the world. Everything is by design. Who we befriend. Where we entertain. How we socialize. The mask takes you into a new persona the more elaborate it is and the more it’s worn leaving behind the authentic you.
So…what happens as the mask chips, cracks, wears and tears? Because it will. Our true and authentic lives always manage to catch up to us no matter what! You know the old saying, no matter where you go, there you are. And no matter what…no matter how successful, how famous, how curated, how far and fast you run from your life, either through sheer exhaustion in keeping the mask as manicured and up to date as possible or through the breakdown of a life crisis, that is when the cracks and fissures in the mask are big enough to expose what is really behind the facade.
Without self knowledge — true happiness, success and lasting pure Love is elusive and fleeting.
If you are unclear of what genuinely moves you how can you realistically set goals, go about life and have successful relationships if you don’t know who you are in them?
An important first step in the process of Awakening Love is reintroducing yourself to you. So unplug from the normal, the common and plug into the universe of a Limitless Life!
Know thyself. Be Love. Be Exceptional!
