How do I know what to write? What to say? What to do?
How can I have more energy? Simplify my life? Discover my purpose? Fulfil my mission?
Be more real. No effort required.
A beautiful human once invited me to work on a project with him, I wanted to say yes, feeling his trust, but I was concerned that I didn’t have the requisite skills. His response was simple, sincere and powerful:
The only skill you need is realness. If it’s not working out, be more real.
Encountering a real human, who refuses to step out of their own truth to enter yours, can feel challenging. There can be a moment of feeling unmet. Likewise standing before another in the truth of who and how I am right now, and not shapeshifting to meet their expectations or fit into their comfort zone, can feel stark and abrupt.
This is the starkness of reality, the sledgehammer of truth, the blinding light of authenticity. It feels quite phenomenal.
Do or do not. There is no try. ~ Yoda
Trying to be real is not it. It is what happens when all the trying stops. Stepping into my truth is not it. It is where I find myself when I do not step out. Becoming authentic is not it. It is my capacity to just be and to realise nothing more is coming.
It is being at home.
It is really easy.
What is true for me when I am at home in my self? Whatever my question, this is the answer.
