BEING AUTHENTIC

The deeper you go into Self-realization, the more you realize being authentic is more important than wanting to be liked. People come and go in your life. One day they like you, the next they don’t.

I think what Byron Katie says holds true here: “What you think of me is none of my business.”

We cannot control what others think of us. However, we can control how AUTHENTIC we’re being in each moment.

Being authentic, to me, simply means you speak from your heart. I notice that when I’m being authentic with someone, I can say pretty much anything and they won’t get offended because they feel it’s not coming from ego/personal agenda.

Rather, it’s coming from love. From the profound realization what we are all in this together. That everyone is doing the best they can in that moment. And most importantly, I am only ever speaking to Myself.

Speaking YOUR Truth
March 16, 2012

“Silence is the main characteristic of being present in the same way that noise is the main characteristic of the thought stream.” –Robert Rabbin

Myself and Jim Dreaver spent today with author/mystic/spiritual teacher Robert Rabbin in his Hollywood, CA apt. Robert was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and given 4-6 months to live… that was 3 months ago.

The 3 of us, all “non-duality” teachers (which doesn’t mean anything except that we dwell in presence and acceptance of what is, rather than thoughts) shared (around a pot of green tea, organic walnuts and almonds, and cold pressed Green kale/spinach veggie juice) about many interesting topics for 5 straight hours! Things such as Robert’s 10 years with Muktananda at his ashram in India; Is it important to set “intentions” in life?; What kind’s of treatments is Robert undergoing; How we all love teaching and speaking from our hearts, etc. Also, both Jim and Robert shared about their experiences being with Jean Klein, who was Jim’s teacher.

But the most important thing I learned from Robert was what it means to live authentically. To speak your truth, however you see it, without any fear or concern about what someone else may think. The key to this is that you are NOT speaking to be right, only to share your truth. There is a difference… if I get defensive that means I am defending something which means that I have taken a position. However, if I am just sharing my truth as I see it (who else?), then what’s to defend?
