I’ve been finding it harder to lie these days. The words just can’t seem to leave my mouth. They don’t settle right with me. And it’s strange. Even when it comes to situations that I know wouldn’t benefit me or might get me in trouble, I tell the truth and I think that’s what living in authenticity is about. It’s not about immediately going onto social media and shouting “hey I am a fucking divine being.” It’s not about shouting that you are gay, or bi, or trans or a guy or a girl or finally identifying with something that you have always felt ashamed about. It’s about living your truth. Doing things that will make you feel more like you every single day.
I am still in the “spiritual closet” because everything comes in stages. You can’t force things to happen against their will. You can’t force things to happen faster than they should. This isn’t the time to turn my entire world upside down. Granted that I speak slightly out of the fear of the reaction of my parents.
But my friends know who I am, what I do and what I’m into and they accepted me like that. I was so terrified at first to begin to be myself around them but the statement that those who love you will accept you as you are and get used to you is very much true. They even try to manifest now. Your authenticity is like a seed. You plant it into the world and it will blossom in the lives of those around you.
