While our individual stories of what led us to begin these journeys of personal development are all different, we always end up with the same question: “Why does no one tell you?”
Why has no one told us about the existence and the dangers of self-limiting beliefs, negative self-talk, false images of self, suppressed shadows, projection etc. and why on the other hand, haven’t we been told that we are already good enough just by being us, that we don’t need a mask and that authenticity and vulnerability are key to living a fulfilled, healthy and happy life?
Even more, we wonder what kind of lives we might have lived if somebody had told us earlier on. What kind of different choices would we have made? How much time could we have saved, how much pain could have been avoided and more importantly how much more of a positive impact could we have had on this world we live in?
Imagine, what kind of world we would live in, if children were taught how to stay in their natural state of wholeness in which they experience and experiment with the whole range of what it means to be human? What would happen if they didn’t cut off parts of themselves as unworthy or unlovable as they grow up? What if they were repeatedly reassured of their own worthiness instead of being trained to seek approval, love and acceptance outside of themselves? What if they were encouraged to believe in and follow their dreams? What if they could love and accept all of themselves and were able to express their unique gift to the world freely and uninhibited?
I think we would have a lot more love and compassion in this world and I think it’s achievable.
This is my vision.
Let’s get on with it and make it happen!
