One’s Authenticity : A Creative Process

Everyone of us is shadowed by an illusory person: a false self..We are not very good at recognizing illusions, least of all the ones we cherish about ourselves. Contemplation is not and cannot be a function of this external self. There is an irreducible opposition between the deep transcendent self that awakens only in contemplation, and the superficial, external self which we commonly identify with the first person singular.Our reality, our true self, is hidden in what appears to us to be nothingness….We can rise above this unreality and recover our hidden reality. God Himself begins to live in me not only as my Creator but as my other and true self.

We have the choice of two identities: the external mask which seems to be real…and the hidden, inner person who seems to us to be nothing, but who can give himself eternally to the truth in whom he subsists.Learn to be natural,try to listen what comes from inside and be your natural best,your most intelligent self.It is when you realize who you are and the extents of the good and the evils which you are capable of. We can’t turn our true selves off and on situational and expect them to carry and sustain us. Rationing creativity results in bipolar-ism of the spirit. Our creativity is also our life force. When we turn it off and on like a spigot, we start to become less and less able to control the valve.

Everyone wants to be loved for who they are, even if we keep our true selves locked up and hidden. It’s a nice little fantasy to believe that the right person holds the key and all the things you do not say are just somehow, magically, known. That’s the downside of growing up. There’s a lot of pretending involved. We frequently act like someone other than who we really are because we don’t know or aren’t comfortable with our true selves.

You need not reach any place, you have to just delve deep in yourself to find the true self and be a Soul Searcher. Search for the truth inside you,there lies your ability. With an example I would like to conclude, Birds feed; then they nest. Paint them any color you want, send them halfway around the world, but they’ll always find a way back. And eventually they’ll show their true colors again.Your journey through life and self-discovery is much like the start of a new day. As you grow, develop, and reinvent yourself, the tendrils of light tear through the darkness of your untapped potential and uncharted territory. As you learn more, discover your life’s purpose, and establish a vision for your future, the light shines through on your true self.

  1. The comment above was in reference to the quote on the first page of your blog.
    I really enjoyed this piece. Its very well written and extremely relevant, at least to me. I love how youu captured the essence of the internal conflict that I believe most people (especially myself) struggle with; their “true self,” vs the “self they put out for the world to see.” Very well done.
