Ask yourself this question: What stops me from unleashing the freedom and the power of my true authentic self

Post by Jenna Padayachee »

I refer to a rather powerful question raised on page 64 by the author. I feel this engagement is a rather critical point in the book.

"Ask yourself this question: What stops me from unleashing the freedom and the power of my true authentic self?"

My answer: I have stopped me, for a long time, from unleashing the freedom and power of my true authentic self for many years. This was mainly a reaction to existence.
I enjoyed my solitude a lot growing up as I learned that I was able to be myself without being harshly criticized or judged. As I grew older, I developed many masks to hide behind. I buried myself in fantasy books until I found things about mind and spirit and psychology from various sources that empowered my awareness. I began to learn about actively choosing my paths, company, behavior, and lifestyle.

Being authentic began to dawn upon me, but this authenticity I found was not welcome even in my adult years in so many spheres. I realized, reading this book, that I had many masks that enabled my survival. Some were good, some so detrimental that they hindered my progress. However, as I have been courageously embracing my "angels and demons," I have been finding my peace. I have also been seeing more pieces to this unraveling by finding more people, books, and situations that align with my authentic path. So I am grateful beyond measure, for I know I am simply being truly me in my expression going forward; my unique path, and all the resources I need will continue to reveal themselves ( like this book and others related to this concept). I embrace my intuition and exercise it vigorously. I am growing to love everything, all the shadows and light and every inhale and exhale, for I acknowledge the divine play in the fabric of my existence ❤️

Your reflection on the challenges and triumphs of embracing one's authentic self provides a profound exploration of identity and personal growth. While I agree that individual self-awareness and authentic living are critical for personal development, the notion of being "truly oneself" in a societal context is inherently complex.

Philosophically, the idea that we wear 'masks' can be seen through various lenses. Existentialists, particularly Jean-Paul Sartre, talked about 'bad faith'—a concept where individuals deny their true nature to conform to societal expectations. You correctly identify that these masks, while sometimes protective, can prevent us from experiencing life fully and authentically.

However, the complete removal of these masks might not always be practical or beneficial. Society functions with a certain level of expectation and conformity, which, while often restrictive, also provides a framework within which we operate and interact. Your struggle with the reception of your authenticity resonates with the existential challenge of finding balance between individual authenticity and social acceptability.

Moreover, the journey to self-discovery and shedding these masks, as you describe, is not merely about personal liberation but also involves navigating the social fabric that might not always be receptive or supportive. This dichotomy raises important philosophical questions about the nature of freedom and the essence of personal identity.

In addition, while your approach emphasizes intuition and a personal spiritual journey, one might argue that a purely introspective path risks overlooking the broader societal and relational contexts that shape us.

How do we reconcile our internal journey with external influences? How can we foster environments that encourage both individual authenticity and communal harmony?

Truly where there is a will, there is a way. Nobody can limit anybody except one's self. I had the same reflection and discover that I am the person holding myself back. In reality noone can limit you even if they want to. The power is yours to use as it pleases you!

I agree with you. And I would like to add some more.

The saying "if there is a will, there is a way" encapsulates the belief that determination and resolve can overcome obstacles to achieve a goal. However, this perspective, while inspirational, may not always hold true due to several limitations that can arise from various factors:

1. Structural Barriers: Societal and systemic obstacles can significantly hinder an individual's ability to succeed, regardless of their willpower. These barriers might include laws, policies, economic conditions, or societal norms that disproportionately affect certain groups, making it difficult for them to access the same opportunities as others.

2. Resource Constraints: Lack of access to essential resources such as education, financial capital, and social networks can limit an individual's ability to achieve their goals. For example, someone from a disadvantaged background might struggle more to start a business if they cannot secure funding or mentorship.

3. Psychological Factors: The "mind-forged manacles" Blake refers to—self-imposed psychological barriers such as fear, low self-esteem, and internalized beliefs—can prevent individuals from pursuing or achieving their ambitions, despite having the desire to do so.

4. Physical and Health-related Issues: Physical disabilities, chronic illnesses, or mental health challenges can also serve as significant impediments. These conditions might limit what an individual can physically or mentally manage, even if they possess a strong will.

5. Environmental Factors: Circumstances such as geographical location, community support, and cultural environment can heavily influence an individual's ability to turn will into way. For instance, a talented student in a remote or war-torn area might find it much harder to access higher education.

While the adage encourages a positive and proactive mindset, recognizing these multifaceted limitations helps provide a more nuanced understanding of the challenges individuals face. This awareness can foster empathy and drive societal efforts to reduce these barriers, supporting a more equitable environment where more people can indeed find a way if they have the will.

My lack of self discipline is my biggest factor that hinders from being who I really want to be. I do a lot of things I'm not proud of because I lack the discipline to control myself.

I wonder if lacking the discipline to control oneself is mainly caused by lacking long term goals.
Actions have consequences and if one can predict what these consequences will be , then one will not react to emotions but instead reflect before acting. That's to say giving up the pleasure of reacting to an emotion in order to get something better some time later.

"Control myself" is an interesting phrase which a lot of people say. But "Myself" is not a thing until the moment my life stops. This is because a self is a process , a thing in the making, not fixed but free . This is why slavery is intrinsically evil because enslaving another deprives them of not only all their time and all their energy but also their freedom to create their self, a lifelong project.

And that is why I label myself "socialist".Because I want everybody to help every else to be as free as possible to create themselves going on into the future. Obviously, as has been described in the previous posts ,some individuals have less opportunity to create their selves due to the factors that have been listed within this conversation; socialism aims to make opportunities more accessible to everybody equally. Having said this, it's not good and true to make excuses for one's failures by blaming some circumstance that is actually surmountable.

Once again, I find your view engaging. Thank you.
I agree that the view of the masks we wear can be beneficial in some instances. However, from my own life experience, I strongly believe that letting go of these masks is important in identifying the true meaning of my own individual path and purpose. The danger of relying on masks is that they can ultimately consume us, which is the reason/root cause of core societal issues.

In my view, as we progress and grow, letting go of certain masks will allow us to transform into a more authentic version of ourselves ( all masks serve a temporal purpose in life), as discussed in the Unfakeable Code. Sometimes, we will lean to certain masks as a crutch due to subconsciously clinging to survival ( from trauma), and it is important to deal with such situations honestly, fearlessly, and with love. A nonaccepting society is a group of individuals ( again, my view obtained from experience of very political environments) who depict dictative tendencies and complex issues amplified through their possession of specific resources, allowing them such control.

An authentic individual or one that is growing in this direction may not fit in environments because of the social structure; they will either let go of this environment and move on to new environments supporting their next phase of growth towards being authentic or influence the experience of others revealing their own authenticity in their original environment.

I firmly believe that some of us will never realize that such masks exist and connect deeply with who we are in our timeline, and this is simply their journey ( I cannot control anyone's decisions in this regard nor force them to see what I see, even if I believe it's for their souls benefit). I can only strongly follow my intuition and create my own path with all that I experience; this is what I choose for myself. I have been shunned in some environments for this, but I have taken the lessons and moved forward focused on my authentic experiences and expressions. I have seen the positive differences my experience and my choices in my existence have made over time; in the community and society I am in, there are these beautiful rewarding instances that make all difficulties worth it. I have developed new relationships and improved compassion and understanding in old ones ( while still embracing differences). I have learned much more about who I am and what I can achieve through simply being me with much love.

Shakespeare wrote Jaques' soliloque in As You Like It "All the World's a Stage". The stage at its best is about humanity and the conditions of human life: the stage, at its best, is not about people pretending that life is other than it is. Therefore the roles that we play throughout our lives are not to be viewed as masks hiding truth but as developments each one of which being appropriate to its time and place.
True, there are liars and cheats who do wear masks, but most people cooperate with each other.

It's hard to have freedom in my situation, but I have a dream that tells me I am already free. What stopped me before was thinking people were after me wherever I went. It feels like I have made big mistakes toward other people. The power of my authentic self is really amazing because it deals on how to be who I am not to be someone else that I should not to be like others. Having an authentic self is really important for the growth of every individual.

Various factors can hinder the expression of our true authentic selves, including societal norms, fear of judgment or rejection, self-doubt, past traumas, and external pressures to conform. Embracing one's true self often requires courage, self-awareness, and acceptance of vulnerability.

Some individuals authentically believe that there are rules which they must and ought to obey. If these rules are not obeyed, the individual who fails to pay attention to them will not only be scorned for himself but his family, friends, and business associates will be tainted.Such an individual is a true self.

Other individuals authentically believe that feelings are to be trusted whether or not their feelings lead to dangerous and risky behaviour. Such an individual is a true self.

There is also the sort of person who tempers their feelings with reason and does not get carried away by their passions. This is also a true self.

So is it still changing, this for true believed perception of self, good householder? And now, how does it come about now?
