Free yourself from yourself.
A short freestyle spoken word piece I wrote today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are all operating under a personality/identity.
When we meet people, the behaviour we show is like handing them your business card which identifies you.
Every time you meet up with someone, they expect you to behave according to that same identity, more or less.
Why? Because it's evolutionary. As long as you stay consistent in your personality, the people around you can predict your behaviour, which provides a sense of security to them.
Unpredictability is unsafe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So our minds are conditioned to stick to an identity (which is formed through a combination of many factors--nurture and nature).
99% of people live their entire lives without ever questioning whether the concept of a personality is actually the truth of what you are.
But as you start to observe yourself in each moment, you notice that you're acting. Always playing this character.
The fact that something deeper in you notices that you're playing this character proves that you are not this character.
So what exactly in you recognizes that you're playing this character?
This the question you have to find the answer to.
This character that you and your friends and family hold onto is limiting your experience of life.
As soon as you recognize this secret,
you start to burn away your limitations
and grow into your true potential in this life.
Your actions stop coming from past conditioning.
You genuinely say and do what you feel in your heart in each moment.
You no longer need to maintain an image for other people.
You open yourself up to possibilities.
You start to move in harmony with life.
This is true freedom. This is true spirituality.
