These last few days I have been experiencing a deeper state of consciousness to the point of going into realms that for some would be frightening.
Many of us who are gifted with the expanded ability to see beyond the masks of others and the falsely projected facades really refuse to peel back and see what truly lurks behind the covering.
Why? Because most feel better off believing the lie than accepting the reality behind the mask. We do this in our lives. Our relationships. Our friendships. Our family life. Our time of self reflection. And the list goes on and on.
Look at that woman who will tell everyone how she is so content and in love with her life, she has all of the trappings of the luxurious amenities that any woman could yearn for yet she is not happy because she knows that the husband who has provided those expensive toys is not faithful and has no connection to her at all. What facade are they living?
While we all may wear a different mask to the various costume parties that has become our life, it is evident that it is based on the same basic principle of not facing things as they are. We tend to point fingers and play the blame game when our secret little denials are revealed but deep down we know that we have swept our crap up under the rug and hoped to HELL that it would go away and disappear! What facade are we hiding behind?
Look at that guy who claims he truly loves his best friend but has expressed a hate to others about how he can’t stand that same friend! He plays both sides in a twisted performance of deceit that would garner him an academy award if he was a recognized actor. Every chance he gets he attempts to sabotage the positive efforts of his “friends” dreams and endeavors all because his disdain for the essence of this unknowing friend.
Makes you really wonder.
When they say that one must keep their enemies close remember that some enemies have already done the job for you! What facades exist around us that we believe to be authentic?
Sometimes it can take a lifetime to peel back the layers of deceit on those who lurk covertly in our midst. The level of pain that manifests from within when you discover that you have been deceived for so long is directly related to the length of time the sham was played on you and the level of intimacy that this Trojan horse of a friend has enjoyed at your expense.
Regardless as to how long anyone has deceived us, it still hurts. We are all truly social creatures and were made to yearn for the company of each other and thrive when we think of life as a collective. We only suffer when we detach ourselves as we have from each other yet most times it seems to be the only answer to the problem.
Yes I understand that antisocial behavior is the new way to live in this day and age because of the hurt and pain that others have delivered to our front door, but what happens when that same deceitful entity in our life ends up being yourself? How do we lie about things to ourselves so well and how do we peel back those painful layers of deceit that we have fooled ourselves with over the years?
It’s hard I know, could you imagine the inner struggle that transpires when we discover that we have been our own worse enemy?
This is NOT the time to play games with our life and it is surely not the time to WASTE time, but yet this what many of us do and in essence we shackle down any chance of us rising to the top in our lives because we are unable to manifest the talents and abilities placed in us by our Creator.
So it may not always be that external entity that holds us back, as a matter of fact I will go out and say that most of the time it IS us who do ourselves the most harm. Why? Because NO ONE in this world can hold us back unless we sign off on it and allow them to do us in. We allow it so therefore we must face the consequences of our own self defeating behavior.
So we have to look within to clear away those cobwebs of self destruction because if we don’t, we will continue to live an unproductive life that is shrouded under the many layers of denial.
So clean house people. But never forget to clean up the inside of your house just as well as you tidied up the outside.
