Just be. It's a phrase I'm sure you've heard time and again. When you stop to think about it, those two small words carry great weight... and great wisdom.
We are spiritual beings in a human body, having human experiences. So naturally, as much as we want to be as connected to the Divine, as much as we want to do good deeds and be the best person we can be, the truth of the matter is even those with the absolute best of intentions have moments where they are subjected to the earmarks of being human. Doubt. Fear. Jealousy. Anger. Mistrust. Just a few of the shortcomings we get to enjoy as we experience our human life. Now, before you get upset with me, hear me out. I know there are some incredible people in the world who literally give the shirts off their backs to others. People who put everyone before themselves, and people who are living examples of the Divine here on earth. But the human mind has mechanisms built in to help protect us and try to do good for us, which end up getting in the way sometimes. Take doubt for example. Has it crept into your world recently? Perhaps it has come upon you in the form of wondering where you were going to get the money to pay a large bill. Or maybe it has waved at you in the form of not being confident enough to apply for a new job. Sometimes, it may even surprise you when you realize you are questioning your faith in your fellow man. However it may reveal itself, stay the course. Just be.
Some tough but necessary lessons I learned over the years are ones I still need to remind myself of sometimes. This is one that holds tremendous value: You will never be all things to all people. Just be who you are. Be yourself. And if you are not sure who that is, take the time to learn. Know Thyself isn't just a clever sounding phrase. It is a key to happiness. Once you learn who you really are and once you know thyself, you will start transforming into the best version of yourself. And you know what happens then? MAGIC! Because when you know who you really are, and you embrace who you really are, you are aware of the spiritual part of your glorious being & you start to really fell the energetic connection to all that is. You realize your connection to nature, to animals, to other humans, to the planet, and to the Universe! Suddenly you are filled with unlimited potential. Suddenly you are not alone. Suddenly there is a greater picture and a greater purpose. It allows you to be more present in the moment.. and to just be.
