In response to my recent post on Savira’s blog, a reader made this comment: How would you separate growth from trying to be something else than your true self?
My immediate response to this was: I don’t think that’s possible, you grow in to your real self. And the more I began to ruminate about my response the better I liked it!
Yes, I do believe that if I’m really seeking and genuine in my search for meaning and purpose and I am willing to do the ‘work’ it takes, I will gradually be able to grow.
But grow in to what or who? Grow into the person I am meant to be. Or better yet, ‘grow back‘ in to the person I was born as!
Yes, you and I were born authentic and through the years we’ve allowed life to make us in to something we’re are not. Somewhere down the line we’ve lost touch with true selves.
The purpose of our lives is to give birth to the best which is within us.~Marianne Williamson
For myself, I believe that it’s time to re-discover and re-create my ‘self’.
Is it that time for you too?
Do read this great article.
