Authentic Self-Acceptance: Recognizing the Great Deception of Spiritual Enlightenment
This post from a year ago came to mind due to feeling into the collective landscape of frequencies out there, close and far. To add to this share, it’s not only that people easily convince themselves they look and sound the part of being more spiritually enlightened than they are embodying, but it’s so very easy to convince others the same. I find this to be a dangerous deception that can take years of undoing, just as much so as it took years to get to play the part. That’s why I advocate vulnerability and transparency, and knowing it’s okay to admit you don’t have all the answers and not to try to convince others or yourself that you do. There are a lot of shells of people walking around without the meat of their soul. The more we focus our attention on our own deepening into integration of the actual embodiment of what we come to learn, the more lasting and penetrating effect we’ll have on others, but also the more self integrity and true empowerment we’ll have for ourselves. A lot of “spiritual” people who call others who aren’t focused on a spiritual life, “sheep” just following the crowd, aren’t aware they’ve created their own version of this sheep mentality, feeding off of newbies and people thirsty for a way out. There is a lot of sheep mentality and sparkly looking and sounding actors on the stages out there in all realms. Be aware of what you are choosing to accept and touch in with your own spidey senses, intuition, gut feeling, and bodily sensations that are trying to get your attention so you can choose a more authentic path than the one you might be following.
Often, when we become more spiritually enlightened, we can easily convince ourselves that we know it all already.
We become very adept at using all of the spiritual terms and concepts we’ve learned, to talk our way through things on the surface and yet haven’t a clue how to actually integrate and embody that, let alone understand that we aren’t really seeing the depth of the picture – we’re merely spewing out the “right” words we think we should use.
Ironically, we can actually become closed off to widening our perspectives even more because we think we have all the answers, or we feel the need to pretend we do so that others will see us in a certain light.
It becomes much easier to deceive ourselves or play subconscious, self-sabotaging games than to accept that we may actually have more available to us to learn, which can help us…

Good words, I find this resonates with things I see. I have found spirituality to be greatly personal and something to be discovered for one’s self. 🙂
thank you for sharing this simon…i feel similarly and feel a great need to run things by my own inner filters and gauges 🙂
I agree, I often see (sometimes on here too) overly zealous but well meaning types trying to dictate how others should stop sinful ways (when referring to homosexuality for example). Inflicting one’s views on others is half the reason why the world’s a mess. I hope you’re well and keep up the great blogging! 🙂
it’s a constant work in progress for us all…and the best we can do is try to be as conscious of our own personal weakness and learning processes and be willing to go through that growth in front of others, so we can do our best to evolve. i know for myself, i constantly catch more and more ways i can improve upon and will change my opinions publicly when i do. i also think that when we rely solely on writing and words, we don’t always grasp the full perspective of what we are trying to share energetically, and words can be easily misconstrued, too limiting and seemingly defining, not to mention we each have different ways of interpreting what someone says since it’s run through our own conditioned filters or energetic triggers. overall, everything and every way something reflects to us i feel is opportunity for us to see how it provokes a reaction and then we have a choice of how we want to integrate that in our own lives. having a brother who is gay, i understand your example. have a beautiful day!
