Our society, as most others around the globe, has a fixed and linear concept of life. We understand it as a progression; it starts and ends in a particular way. Throughout this progression, we take on more and more role identities until we are gradually an amalgamation of scripted context which we put forth into our societies as a ‘person’. This becomes how we are seen by others, who we believe ourselves to be, and how society as a whole reflects our value back to us.
As a result, we begin to lose more and more of our Original Self to the context of this ‘characterized’ identity.... career label, job description, parent, grandparent, hobbyist, participant, owner, renter, husband, wife, partner, religion, belief, political preference, omnivore, vegan... the list goes on and on.
This has an extremely detrimental effect on our Embodied Being, particularly if we feel manipulated into a role that we would not have chosen for ourselves, or if we are putting forth to the world a characterization of a role that does not truly reflect our authentic way.
As we begin to place more and more of our attention, our awareness, and our effort on maintaining these pre-set characteristics, we begin to lose our connection with our Original Presence. Our true and abiding Original Self that is enmeshed in the aliveness and vitality of the ever arising moment, beyond any context or identity; our Natural Being.
When we lose ourselves into these conjured matrices, our physical form begins to reflect the withdrawal and our body begins to lose its globality, animation, spring, power, glow, agility, resilience, depth, and volume; the essence of our aliveness arising on a continuum as Source-Being. Your true nature awaits you...
