The way you go about your daily business identifies for you who you are. The nuances in your behaviour are clear indicators of how it is to be you, and why it is that you bother. There is always a reason to bother being yourself. As we have heard countless times before, there is no one that can do that better than you can. It can be interesting at times to watch other people try. It can be extremely irritating, too, especially when they will perpetually fuck it up. Once you have identified your true self you will not need to put up with pretence. Not from yourself, and not from others.
There are those in our midst that are trained identifiers. That means they have learned how to see what is in front of their eyes. It would make sense as an identifier to trust your first instincts. They are usually the right ones. It also makes sense to identify a positive rather than a negative. Like it is preferable to meet the truth in a person than it is to make excuses about the lies they use to conceal their real. What on earth is the point of dealing with what is unreal?
When you find that you can accurately identify your every aspect – and for some people that takes a very long time – you will find the ‘inner peace’ that you seek. Until you have identified and accepted your entire being, your past misdeeds and concealments, your basic building blocks – that ‘peace’ will seem to elude you. You can chase peace around in circles for eternity – it is notoriously skittish. If you cannot take on board everything that you are, we are, then there can be no real peace on this planet. If peace is contrived, it is not authentic – and then calling it ‘peace’ is pointless. What does a word mean if it has no substance? Until you show unconditional love for yourself, your fellow earthlings and the vast expanse that is our collective unconscious, peace will forever be one step ahead of our efforts.
