Understanding The Authentic Self and Just Being…
It’s time to get real. You are a multifaceted being with a complex mind and spirit. And you deserve to live in your authentic truth – free from the confines of societal expectations. In this blog post, I’ll go over how you can live without worrying about impressing anyone but yourself. Let’s get started on Just Being!!
Nature of “Just Being” Social
I know I am not the only one who has realized this. Science proves it. Our hearts are not just for pumping blood, it also provides our lungs with oxygen. We are one constant living, breathing body.
We are more than these things of materialism – of high schools and public schools and math exams. We are whole human beings – scientists, artists, philosophers, writers, lovers, logical and illogical.
We are individuals with our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and characteristics. The trick is to identify this magic inside of us. This light gets trapped in the prison of misdirection and conditioning brought on by society to prevent one’s evolution.
I am graced with knowing many people who have succeeded in breaking free from the cycle of living half their lives; searching for happiness outside themselves – usually through drugs or other distractions which further perpetuate brainwashing into consumerism.
These people do not subscribe to the concept of social reality as most do, they live it day to day through an understanding of stillness in one’s spiritual self.
Meditation gives you insight; Yoga helps rid your body of stress while balancing your Chakras; Reiki heals spiritual wounds allowing you to accept love unconditionally while also learning to heal yourself with your own hands.
People who practice these things are not doing it for the sake of fad or trend. They have been touched by a power -they’re doing it because that is their lifestyle. They have learned to lead by example through true self-knowledge and wisdom.
It has made them whole human beings, without the constant need to detach through drugs or physical distractions like most of us do when we reach a crossroads in life – which usually means buying more shit (materialism) or bypassing life altogether.
We are our only saviors; humanity’s salvation is found within each person, liberation comes once you learn how to unlock your mind and experience true freedom, and happiness follows like ripples after a pebble falls into a pond.
We are all connected so why fight against it? If we were to collectively choose a way of life that is of freedom, what would stand in our way?
You’re tired of feeling like shit, and experiencing personal and social chaos? Yeah, you’re not alone. Welcome to the club! Pretty much everyone on this planet is living with varying degrees of egoism. We often act contrary to what we don’t want or need because we think we can get away with it.
This is our ultimate downfall. It’s not that we disagree with society; it’s because we’ll do anything even to our detriment for the payoff of being right.
Let me tell you a few things, every day billions of people all over the world survive on egocentricity and selfishness producing a cultural and social interaction vortex that severely disrupts and distorts the present-day reality. The energy we attract is equivalent to what we project.
As human beings, we are so powerful, because of our ability to transform and/or distort ourselves, others, and our environment by the quality of energy we emanate.

Currency of The Soul
Soul currency is a currency that cannot be stolen or taken. All currency given from the heart is soul currency, especially when it is given freely without conditions. True worth isn’t found in bank accounts, possessions, or positions.
It’s found in the language we speak and use to express ourselves. We all have the potential for a limitless abundance of energy and we can all tap into it anytime we want. We just need to open our minds and realize that we already have it.
Having money isn’t the problem, believing you don’t have enough is. Your worth is not at the bank but in the mind.
We each have a currency of the soul which is infinite. It can’t be confiscated or taxed by anyone, it is yours and only yours to control. A government is powerless to regulate it with laws because it’s an amount that you choose to give or take from yourself.
You may have given some away but rest assured it’s still inside and available to you at any time. When you realize how important it is, your desire will grow and never dwindle until this currency of the soul has been spent.
If another tries to steal something saying that you are selfish because you don’t want to give it away, begin by giving more. The reason they are taking from you is that you are still holding on to some.
The currency of the soul is the only real wealth that exists. It’s also known as love, light, beauty, power, or intelligence. All shares of these are worth more than all the paper money in the world put together.
They can’t be burned, devalued by inflation, or devalued by trading. The more you give away, the more people will like and respect you. It’s the only investment that will never lose its value and it is one of the things that can’t be taken away from you under any circumstances.
The currency of the soul is infinite and self-replenishing and it does not require a counterparty to make transactions, it requires authenticity. Authenticity requires Just Being!!
Freedom in Discovery to Just Be
We are multi-dimensional beings. We have the potential for so much more.
By design, the parameters of social reality prohibit us from becoming aware and aligned with the transcendental qualities that lie within our authentic selves.
Our authoritarian society primarily stimulates our body and mind as a form of distraction, manipulation, and oppression to maintain dominion over humanity. The authentic self becomes suppressed and irrational.
Only our enlightened emotion and intuition can free us from the spell of social reality. Our quest for creativity, healing, fulfillment, and purpose begins with us. We must embrace and illuminate the shadows within to transform ourselves. It starts with choosing an authentic living environment.
We can be more than we think, don’t let the parameters of social reality prohibit us from doing more. To maintain its reign over humanity, social reality must utilize our bodies and minds as a form of distraction, manipulation, and oppression.
People who are truly interested in becoming better versions of themselves won’t be deterred by the fact that they’re not seeing much movement. As long as you continue to work on yourself, your intellectual muscles will strengthen over time, allowing you to reach a higher level of awareness.
Only the light of our awakened emotion and intuition can break the mindless enchantment of social reality. Our quests for creativity, healing, compassion, and purpose begin with us. We need to embrace the shadows within ourselves to transform ourselves.
Illusion of Enlightenment
We have been conditioned to believe that enlightenment is something to work towards, or be achieved “someday.” We are already enlightened.
We must break free from the social programming that has been used to fragment our natural selves. The real meaning of our worldwide energy is diminished when we choose to believe more in who the world makes us and less in who we truly are.
Humanity has been on a long journey. Our evolution is the result of many factors, including our response to a stimulus. Understanding why we are here and what is happening can be explained through observation, experience, and study.
Spirituality teachings that have survived the test of time clearly show us how our present state came into being, without judgment or blame, and what we can do to end our suffering.
They provide a key that opens a door into the unknown, where there exists great potential for those who are willing to consider new possibilities.
Just Be as You Are in Stillness
Being is a revolutionary act. It’s the only way we can put our souls on display. The difference between being and doing is significant, and it illuminates our level of forgetfulness.
Personal change is inspired by the option between routine and unusual. We’re all endowed with senses, instincts, ideas, emotions, and intuition to some degree.
The more sensitive you become to your inner self, the more familiar it feels. The more familiar this quality of becoming, the less dependent you are on living up to a status quo.
Cultivate an attitude of “being” as opposed to “doing” because what you’ll discover is that everything else will take care of itself. For change to manifest, it must be preceded by a willingness to accept what is.
To achieve this objective, we need to take the initiative to settle into ourselves and allow that which is within us to find its way out. The process of personal evolution necessitates that we give ourselves permission to release our past and simply BE as we are now.
Being might not transform you into a better version, but it will alter how you perceive and make sense of your reality.
Being is underrated, especially when living in the world we live in today. We focus on our appearance, what we want to do with our lives, and who we plan to become; yet staying grounded in the here and now is powerful.
Being is about stripping away everything we were told we should be and understanding that our true nature is in the heart.
Being allows us to take in, process, and embrace life in a way that experiencing it never will. Being helps us realize that we’re not just reacting to every situation in our lives; rather, we have a choice. We want to respond from a place of being because it’s so much more fulfilling.
Being is an active, mindful process that allows us to be fully aware and awake while present in the moment. It’s about taking the time out of our day to stop and acknowledge what we’re feeling inside at any given point in time.
This concept can help us ground ourselves when we feel overwhelmed or anxious. We can bring ourselves back to the present moment by asking,
“What do I need right now? How am I feeling at this particular point in time?”
Being is about learning how to be honest with yourself and aligning your thoughts, words, and deeds accordingly. It’s also having the courage to open up to the unknown, to embrace the darkness and uncertainty with an appreciation for what you do know.
We make things harder than they need to be because we’re conditioned to think that life should always feel good, but this mindset is detrimental.
Acceptance of imperfection is what will set us free. If we can open up our hearts and minds and come into contact with our souls, we can live and love more expansively and unconditionally.
We don’t have to be anyone but ourselves because that’s what life is all about; living as who we were born to be. It’s simpler than we make it out to be; the only requirements are authenticity and vulnerability.
Living in Dimensions
Our being is Multi-dimensional. Our physical bodies and minds are obvious necessities for interacting with society. Our heart generates a tremendous electromagnetic essence that goes beyond our physical senses. It sends out limitless, worldwide energy.
Our soul is the source of our life force and transmits it through the chakra system of dimensions. Our chakras distribute this energy throughout our daily lives. The type of energy that emanates from our chakras is determined by who we choose to be.
It is essential to maintain an equilibrium between our souls, hearts, minds, and bodies to have a connection with the world.
Energy of Torus
We all have a continuous energy field called a ‘torus’ that circulates energy from the center where our being is strong. Like inhaling and exhaling in a conscious breath, it radiates and recycles energy in an eternal ebb and flow.
Our chakra system operates with the energy currents of the universe making it the sustenance of our life force. It is also the origin of our creativity and its actualization. Our torus can transform into a vessel for expansion and expression of consciousness if we are aware of it.
We are so much more than we have been led to believe, and our energy is not restricted by the parameters of our common sense or conventional intellect. When we utilize all aspects of our being, we create an infinite supply of power.
To unleash our emotions and live from our gut intuition is a necessity. We are multi-dimensional humans endowed with the natural capacity to enlighten ourselves and our social environment. We are everything we will ever need!
This is just the beginning. Yes, the universe is made entirely of energy, but your consciousness can help you to focus that energy to suit your needs. You are not just a passive recipient – you have the power to be a creator!
The only means by which we may attain our fulfillment is through intuition. Your destiny is up to you, and it consists of reaching your extraordinary capacity to be an energetic river of universal possibility. Everything you’ve been, are, or will ever be is a realization of your conscious energy!

5. The Role of Presence in Relationships and Society
Being Present in Relationships:
Impact: Actively listening and being fully present in relationships can lead to transformative changes. This level of presence allows individuals to deeply understand and connect.
By being present, we engage in active listening, where we fully concentrate, understand, respond, and remember what is being said. This fosters a deeper level of empathy and understanding.
Contribution to Society:
Perspective: Being present extends beyond personal relationships and significantly impacts society. A community of mindful individuals contributes to a more empathetic and compassionate society.
By being present, we develop a deeper understanding of others’ experiences and challenges, fostering a culture of kindness and support.
Creating a Ripple Effect:
The practice of being present in our personal interactions and societal engagements has profound implications. It not only enriches our relationships but also contributes to creating a more empathetic, understanding, and cohesive society.
By extending the benefits of “Just Being” beyond ourselves, we participate in the collective effort to build a more mindful and compassionate world.
“Just Being” is not just a state of mind but a journey that involves practical steps, self-awareness, and a balance between personal well-being and social engagement.
By embodying these strategies, we can make “Just Being” an integral part of our daily lives, leading to personal fulfillment and a positive impact on those around us.
Your life force is the source of your power and it is up to you how you use it. You can intertwine it with different dimensions and create your destiny. Your soul knows what you need to do to reach your extraordinary capacity.
Relax and don’t try to understand everything at once. Tranquility will come when you accept what is happening and let go of what you think should be happening.
Go deep within yourself to connect with your true nature. Listen to the voice of your heart and trust that you are on the right path. Everything is possible for you if you open yourself up to infinite possibilities. Allow yourself to be the river of energy that flows through all of creation.
