with the workshop coming up, I had an interesting conversation last week. Someone was asking about what it involved and after explaining about the made up languages part, they’re instant reaction was ‘hell no! That’s so embarrassing.’ And it made me think. About the self, about the ego, and about our spiritual practice.
This workshop Anaïs and I are offering involved and focusses on letting go of the idea and the concept of the ego holding us and our emotions back; holding our true voice back. Largely, not giving a shit about what people think.
Embarrassment is something felt from the idea that someone else will judge you or think you silly. It is a symptom of a deeper seeded notion, rather than a notion in itself.
When we have love and compassion for ourselves, when we have the belief and self love to understand and live from a space of ‘we are enough’, then we don’t feel as much of a need to be influenced by the idea that someone else may judge us. So what, right?
The conversation made me extremely emotional as I considered the endless potential and power that people, all of us, don’t utilise because we respond to situations through fear. Fear of looking silly, sounding silly, being laughed at or mocked. A fear of not being good enough.
You are. We all are! Love yourself and love each other. Support yourself with kindness and live life from truth, not ego -and from love, not fear.
