Continually fighting against who you are may bring about a louder knock at your door that you won’t welcome.
As SGL beings we often have the tendency to fight against being ourselves. Many of our stories start with us ignoring the call of his or her existence. There are many possible reasons for this resistance, from fear that being who we are will be too difficult to a disbelief in the very person we are is too much of burden to bear.
We may feel too small, too distracted by other people’s ideas about who we should be, or too uninformed of our path. Whatever the case, the resistance to actualizing ourselves has very concrete consequences, and many of us get called out of hiding by an illness or a twist of fate that unequivocally dismantled our resistance. In other the words, the universe knocks, and if we don’t answer it knocks louder.
The first step on the journey to accepting ourselves is to listen to our internal voices and respond to the knocking universe at the door daily. As we do, the symptoms and anxieties that have haunted us will fade into the background, replaced by opportunities, both big and small, to open the door to who we truly are.
