In release, we begin.
Afraid to lose or be left out, we chase + cling… + in clinging, we are lost.
The deepest things beat within, made dark + fearful by our holding, only uplifting the instant we let go.
[The Book Of Awakening]

I believe that authenticity involves peeling off all the layers we have acquired through the years. The layers of fear… unworthiness… I need to look like X… I need to act like X… etc. Even certain things like beliefs + values our parents instilled in us. Is that really what we believe? Is that really what we want out of life?

We do not see things as they are — we see things as we are.

Sadly, there’s such a lack of self-acceptance + self-love nowadays that it makes us feel that we are not worthy of love. Our ugly perception of ourselves cause these suffering feelings.

We are all worthy of love because we are created in love… that’s who we are at the core.

If only we realized that we would feel complete love if we only fully loved ourselves. We fully love ourselves by being authentic + allowing ourselves to be who we were created to be.
