Everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Every day. All the time. YOU are telling yourself a story right now!
And this story is simply a collection of beliefs that ultimately makes you what you are – it lays the foundation for every action you take or don’t take in life. In essence, you build yourself out of this story, one day at a time.
For a while, everything aligns just fine, or so it seems, and life is good.
But then, at some point, perhaps sometime in your thirties, forties or fifties, you get slapped with a harsh reality that doesn’t even slightly align with the story you’ve been telling yourself. And it hurts! As you struggle to cope with the pain you’re feeling, you are slapped again and again with similar realities. It goes on like this until you realize that the story you’ve been telling yourself and holding on to all these years is the primary source of your pain, because the beliefs that support the story are utterly and hopelessly false.
It isn’t easy, but you have to accept it. You have to seriously sit down with yourself and come to grips with the reality that you were wrong about it all along. What you believed to be true was just an illusion built on false beliefs – a story – that never really was what you thought it was.
This is your awakening!
Although it hurts in the beginning, it’s a beautiful thing in the long run.
As time passes, awareness gradually becomes the new foundation of your journey.
