Your Authentic Voice
The humans who live before us teach us how to dream (live). As children, the adults around us hooked our attention and put information into our minds through repetition. That is the way we learned everything we know. By using our attention we continue to learn a whole reality. No matter what part of the world, or our thoughts or feelings that we make go away, as individuals we remain here in that place, our internal map of reality.
- What would it take for you to know who you are at the highest level of your being?
- What are you waiting for to identify the things that keep you from receiving the gifts of your authentic voice?
The key components of your internal map of reality are your beliefs. You parrot your beliefs back and forth as if they were absolute insights. You take these beliefs as self-constructed barriers, fragile clichés pulled around your life to keep out the mystery. These beliefs are making every effort to justify your reasons for not proceeding with placing healthy dependency on identifying the things that keep you from receiving the gifts of your authentic voice. One of the reasons you may not take specific actions to identify the things that keep you from receiving the gifts of your authentic voice and being the human being you were created to be is simply that you do not really know your ‘Self’ at the most basic level. You do not know how you really feel and what you really need.
By refusing the gifts of your authentic voice, they will haunt your days and may undermine all of your toiling. In the theater of your heart, you no longer have the luxury of wallowing in what has held you back. This is the choice standing between the gifts of your authentic voice (living authentically) and its coming true. This will require a point of departure, the courage to shed what is predictable in order to establish your authentic voice and embrace the life that was intended for you from the beginning. Your authentic life.
I trust you will agree, when you are not aligned with your authentic voice—you need the outside world to validate your values, religious or spiritual positions. If you suffer more often than not, you think it is a punishment from an external force. I believe others cannot tell you who or what you are, or what your existence should mean to you. Only you can determine what you can be for your ‘Self’, as opposed to what others want you to be. For this you must look at your ‘Self’ not through the eyes of others, but from your ‘Self’, from the inside out – from within the acute reality of your own cognitive and spiritual existence. You are not a puppet manipulated by outside powerful forces. You are the powerful force your ‘Self’.
An invitation for you not to make your limited beliefs and thoughts your prison. To free your ‘Self’ from your limited beliefs is one of the unseen achievements of daily life to keep the undomesticated complexity of your real identity so well hidden that you never suspect the worlds that collide in your heart. "I know myself." “I follow my authentic voice to connect with my authentic Self.”---these are the most profound statements you can ever make. Self-knowledge, after all, is the ultimate goal extolled by the wise. To follow your authentic voice is to give precedence to the inner ‘Self’ and it starts by knowing the key to understanding your emotions. As a result your outer world will fall into place.
I believe the condition for you to establish your authentic voice must begin in the inner life of thought, emotion (feeling), imagination and prudence. Feeling your feelings is the primary key to hearing your authentic voice. This is an essential practice in hearing your authentic voice. If you are unwilling to feel certain things, you will not be as open to new possibilities. You must also replace beliefs that do not serve you with those that do by adopting the witness posture—to watch the process with unconditioned awareness. These approaches will provide you the results in the outer world that will resonate deeply with your innermost needs and values.
This means assuming responsibility for all your actions as you attempt to follow your authentic voice from the subjective contents of your stream of consciousness. You are re-creating your reality in every instant — through your thoughts, through your words, through your choices. You are choosing who you are, how you will live, what you will realize. An exclusive call to follow your authentic voice to connect with your authentic ‘Self’, and act out of your authentic power. Why? Because being true to your authentic voice is the only way to live in this world and break through to success, be content, fulfilled and at peace.
