Let go of your mental suffering

What Is Our Suffering?
We were born whole and complete. Our conditioning from culture, education, religion, superstition, and family of origin gave us the message that we were unacceptable as is and that we needed something outside of us to make us more than we were when we arrived. We were told that our money, career, education, gender, where we lived, or how we looked to name a few, would all be ways that our worth could be measured. When we achieved these things it would make us more, or complete us somehow. We chased these things in order to make our unacceptable self acceptable. We were not seen, validated, or acknowledged for the truth of our authentic self.
In order to hide our unacceptable authentic self we created false selves to hide behind called the ego. Each mask or false identity reflects one way in which our authentic nature was unacceptable and one way we adapted to hide it. This fit what our family and culture taught us, and these masks protected our childhood wounds; but this role was not made for us. And we suffer.
What Is Underneath It All Is Simply This
We believe that our thinking mind is us, that every thought is ours, and those thoughts define us. No wonder we feel overwhelmed and out of control most of the time. It’s hard work hiding and protecting all that pain, especially when our mind torments us with negative self talk and limiting beliefs that reflect all of the ways we felt unacceptable, continuing the cycle of negative self talk, pain and limiting beliefs.
As a result we face all kinds of addictions, repeating patterns of self sabotaging behavior, and limiting beliefs.
We have forgotten who we are.
Come remember…Wholeness awaits
