Bare yourself to the world

We can only truly be ourselves if we let go of all the roles the mind makes us play. Presenting this false image to the outside world, the subterfuge that we engage in daily…masking ourselves in fear of the real person being seen.

To be truly ourselves we have to quit acting and start just being. We have to be brave enough to be brutally truthful and faithful to the person we really are. We have to step away from the charade and become the naked version that we hide.

The different hats we wear to act out all those stories, that our ego wants us to be, only mask the real you and me.

We suffer behind these masks and facades…where the real person is crying to be seen.

Let go of stories, throw out the costumes and bare the real you to the world and end the suffering each acted out role causes us and others.

The uncomfortableness of kindness

We do not know how to accept kindness.

We feel have to reciprocate.

We expect a burden.

So we resist.

We think there’s a catch.

Or we feel beholden to the kind person.

True kindness is always without expectations and comes from our soul, from our true essence and we do it because it brings us joy not for a return.

However, we are conditioned into the ‘one good turn deserves another mentality’ and therefore, there is much false kindness, that is really manipulating others as there are conditions and expectations.

This is why we have become uncomfortable with kindness.

The simple way to change this is by example, to only offer unconditional kindness from the heart, where it is our joy that is the focus and not getting something.
