Every time you layer yourself with another media mask
you move farther away from yourself, your soul and your true nature.
Layering up these days seems to be the ‘thing’ to do.
We alter ourselves to appear_______ whatever it is we want to show the world.
The media does a great job letting us think we are not “good enough” the way we were intended to be, and we buy into it, hell I have bought into it. When you know better, you know what to do.
We get so caught up in the mascarade of who we want others to think we are that we forget the truth of who we know ourselves to be.
Unfortunately knowing ourselves is no longer, that ship seems to have sailed a long time ago. I don’t even think we know who we are anymore, but we do have an idea of what we want others to know. It almost seems clonish, everyone believes they are unique but they ‘buy’ into the same system.
Why do we wear masks? Shame, guilt, we were told stories about ourselves that don’t resonate with us, so we reinvent ourselves to something we feel is more appealing, acceptable, and along the way, we lose ourselves.
It is time to take back our lives and love ourselves as we are; soul filled energy wrapped up in the human body.
Let’s drop the masks, and get rid of the false images we created to be loved, accepted, revered, etc.
Be a lamp unto yourself. Be your own confidence. Hold to the truth within yourself, as to the only truth.-The Buddha
