Being genuine and authentic – from Goddess

Good evening,

I have been struggling with losing myself in the expectations and disappointments of those around me.  It is something I have done all my life.  It is a choice I make and I am shifting.  Isn’t this great advice?
 
I love you,
Paul

The choices you have are endless.  You can choose to come here or not.  You can choose to ignore the ideas or not.  You can be with Us or be somewhere else.  It is all there for you to discover and enjoy.

Guilt is not productive for you because it keeps you in the past and worrying about what others think.  When you live for others and only focus on what they have for you, you are lost in the concerns around you.  Even when you worry about what We think about you or what you are not doing for Us, you are lost in the ideas of worry about issues outside of yourself.

You cannot be healthy and focus on what others want from you.  What they teach you and what you can learn from others is substantial and important for your growth, but obsessing on what you are “not” or what you are not doing based on others’ assessments, will keep you wandering around and confused.

You become powerful when you find the area of passion you have and what you want to be and then pursue those directions.  You find new ways of being because you concentrate on becoming the person you like to be and use the ideas of others to help you excel beyond what you are doing by yourself.

You find your purpose and meaning by going after the areas of life you enjoy and are fulfilled by.  Then when you give up your body to the earth, you will have lived as you wanted to and in ways that are genuine and authentic.

Go away from the externals and back to the internal impulses.  They are always more true and able to inspire and lift you.

Every day, you make a new you

Hi,

Life can be so frustrating at times and people don’t seem to respond the way I want them to.  There are so many options and what do each of them produce?  As I was thinking about all this, the Man came through with something even more perplexing and deep.
 
I love you,
Paul

Every day you make a new you.  Each moment you decide what you want to think about and what you want to do.  Each of these decisions makes you what you are and how you appear to others.  Every word, every motion, every thought and expression is a building block creating who you are.

People respond to what you say.  People make assessments about you by what you text and how you treat them.  What you talk about is key to creating your identity but what you do is even bigger.  Even when you are quiet and listen, you are establishing who you and how you react to what is going on around you. 

When you write something and share it, your identity changes.  When you speak something and do something with something someone else says, you are becoming something to them.  Each smile, each frown, each complaint shapes who you are with those you are with. 

You can appear competent and helpful or you can resist and find fault.  You have ideas to share and you can let others express themselves ahead of you.  What does that say about you and how do you show up when you do what you choose?

The opportunity is to re-create yourself each day.  What do you put your energy into and how do you move and shake?  What is important to you and how do you invest your time?  Do you spend time doing things not important to you?  If you do what you want to do, how does that show up with others? 

Ultimately, this is your gig and trying to please others and get them to like you is rather frustrating.  If you do have someone who likes you, don’t you start taking it for granted anyway?  What do you do to keep a relationship going and what do you do to push people away if it gets to stuffy or difficult to manage? 

Deciding what actions you will take and what results you want can be difficult.  You can also get lost in the path of only looking outside of yourself for acceptance.  What do you really want at the soul level?  If all you want are superficial things, will you ever get them?  What do you really want and will you be satisfied if you get them?

Life shows you to yourself.  Life also challenges you to find the deeper, more fundamental desires and then tempts you to look elsewhere for what you think you want.  Can you stay focused on the areas you really want?  Do you even know what you really want?
