Each human being makes their own unique view

of the world according to their own energy and

environment.  Add to this our inheritance from

ancestors combined with earlier versions of culture

and evolution in which they lived and we have

a blueprint we are born into human life with.  

We are born into a family with a history and a

certain energy or set of proclivities some of which

have been perpetuated through the generations.

Modern science informs us that we inherit DNA

from our parents and they from their parents and

so on. We cannot change this unless we take

drastic steps with surgery, drugs or other medical

intervention.  This fact is then combined with the

rules and structure of the culture, religion,

climate, gender, class, etc. we arrive in. So, it

is easy to see how people become separated

from their true individual natures and their

dreams and sincere urges.

They may live completely sealed into an ego

shell of compromise and insincerity.

We see those around us who have ‘lost’

themselves, lost their true nature. These

foundlings act as if they are slumbering or

intoxicated by life, swept helplessly on

the highs and lows,

buffeted by their luck or misfortune.

They habitually blame others while

over-cherishing their fragile ‘selves.’  As

witnesses we are able to see how their inner

lives are incongruous with their outer lives,

but often we cannot see our own

incongruences.  And that is the challenge:

to know and accept ourselves completely,

our shortcomings and our strengths equally. 

Many people become so adept at wearing a

wardrobe of different masks to cope with each

social situation they must participate in, that

the masks grow into their face and they can

never remove them

Spiritual training can provide the tools to first

detect and then remove those masks for short

intervals. Then gradually, we unmask for a longer

and longer time until we have the confidence to

remove them completely and live our

self-sincerity, our true and unique nature.

Our true nature is our divine inheritance,

but living in huge competitive urban groups

as most of us do means we cover it over,

bury it, forget about it, simply so we can fit in.

So we can get approval from our peers and

communities.

So, get a glimpse of your true nature today

and have the courage to live true to it

if only for a few seconds.

Tomorrow is another opportunity.
