Don't Bite The Hook

It seems to me that we have reached a fever pitch of eradicating self doubt and uncertainty in these past many years of online gurus and overnight experts.

Not that humans haven’t always wanted to avoid feeling the bad stuff, but there’s SO MUCH airtime being taken by telling you just how to avoid the hard stuff, the discomfort, the uncertainty and jump real quick to the positive feeling, ego boosting, rock solid rockstar place.

An old friend messaged me this morning to lament about jealousy. I get this one fairly often from people who know me from my old life, they saw jealousy twist me up and wring me out in 1,001 ways.

After telling me about the insecurity, my friend gave me a few ego lines about how he sees himself, seemingly trying to counteract this discomfort of the jealousy and insecurity (which from my many years of research, I don’t actually believe are always synonymous) And yet, here we were talking about something outside himself he wanted to annihilate. Popular culture would be like “yeah bee-atch, annihilate that crap , YOU are the bada$$, the Bo$$! Go show us how its done!”

Yet the true call of our body and soul don’t work like that.

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."

 --Ralph Waldo Emerson

Image may contain: one or more people, people sitting and indoor 

I reminded my friend that likely, life wanted to offer him something here, inside this jealousy, the raging insecurity that he’d acknowledged. There was a gift wrapped in this ugly packaging. A real gem!

Don’t be too hard on the insecurity, don’t try to pummel it out of existence or cover it up by pumping up your ego Gary V style. You’ve likely felt this kind of insecurity before. You made it through that one. You can make it through this one, too. Plus not only that, now, with increased awareness and curiosity, you can turn to life and ask what it is trying to show you.

What is the lesson available here for you, where in your person is life offering the invitation to step more fully into your divinity and less in your ego game of believing you don’t measure up, aren’t good enough and need to be different?

It’s a seductive hook. One that has made a lot of people a lot of money convincing people they are broken and just need to be better to feel better. Though as Pema Chodron lovingly reminds us, don’t bite the hook.

Because maybe you will get the boost you’re looking for to avoid the discomfort of the soul growth being offered to you as well as you get a nasty gash from where the ego hook went in. And then, you have two wounds to deal with: the one that sits in your soul trying to show you the path to living more fully from your divinity and the gash made from avoiding that path and following the fast talking ever convincing voice of the ego hook.
