Many people associate the word spiritual with religion and religious beliefs. In fact, the word ‘spiritual’ refers to who we are as individuals i.e. our true self.
Spiritual issues start to develop in our earliest years. They are a direct consequence of the way we relate to our environment and what happens in it.
Most of these issues are rooted in the conflicts we have within ourselves. These conflicts are incredibly uncomfortable and living with them can be almost impossible.
To stop being uncomfortable we have to internally adjust ourselves. In other words, we STOP being who we really are and become someone else. This process affects the body and mind, for example:
Our capacity for learning, memory, ability to focus and concentrate, self-confidence, self-expression, confidence, optimism, social skills, decision making, mental health, behaviour in general.
In a general sense, the more of a caring, sensitive type we are by nature, the more likely we are to adjust and stop being ourselves.
By the time we’re in our late teens, we are ‘set’ in our new way of being. We are largely unaware of the massive, internal change we’ve gone through.
If changes are minor, we’re lucky; life will be relatively straight-forward. If changes are big, we’re not so lucky; we will experience all kinds of SIDE-EFFECTS as a result. Many of these masquerade as illnesses. Others side-effects include:
Feeling unsettled, like a fraud or imposter, never being satisfied, always ‘wanting’, over-reacting, rolling over, treading on egg-shells, backing down, unhappiness, mental health issues.
To be free from these side-effects and others, we have to reverse the process of change and get BACK to being who we are.
Changing back to BE WHO AND HOW WE REALLY ARE can be a daunting prospect but it always pays dividends; the rewards can be spectacular:
Physical, mental, emotional, and psychological health and wellbeing improve. Behaviours change; we think, feel, decide, speak and express ourselves in a way we want to, without faking, forcing or having to try. It all happens naturally.
The more REVERSE WORK we do to get back to being our true-selves, the better we feel and function; the more internally comfortable we are. The inner critic stops criticising. Demons drop away. Our need to find someone to loves us fades because we love ourselves more than anyone else ever could.
More self-loving and emotionally strong, we are less dependent on others and therefore, no longer afraid of losing them. This means they have less of an emotional hold; they are less able to control, manipulate, abuse and victimise us.
Able to speak up and stand up for ourselves we can take better care of ourselves. As a consequence, we don’t need to ‘trust’ others to take care of us; we are less likely to get hurt as a result. More empowered, we have relationships with the ‘right’ kind of people, succeed with greater ease and enjoy life more.
When we are true to ourselves, we have little if any self-doubt. At ease with ourselves, we are at ease with other people and the world at large. Social anxiety doesn’t exist. Being less internally conflicted, we can take on MORE stress without suffering any of the usual side-effects. We are less likely to develop serious illness with age.
You are already an amazing person, you were born that way and you can’t lose what you’re born with.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO TRY TO LEARN TO BE SOMETHING YOU ALREADY ARE.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO ADD IN WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE.
YOU CAN NOT IMPROVE ON PERFECTION AND THE TRUE-SELF IS PERFECT.
As Michelangelo the great artist said when asked about the statue of David:
“The sculpture is already complete within the marble block, before I start my work. It is already there, I just have to chisel away the superfluous material.”
Chisel way the spiritual issues that stopped you being your true-self and you will get back to being your true-self.
No matter what you think about yourself now, no matter how ‘bad’ a person you think you are, no matter how ‘guilty’ you believe yourself to be, as you REVERSE back, these worries and fears will dissipate and life will get better.
Your true-self is waiting right where you left it. Perfectly preserved.
Why waste it?
