Peeling Layers

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 7:22 am

We’ve all been teenagers. If your memory is anything like mine, you want to forget some of the goofy things you did during that period of your life. The list is too extensive to cite all the inane things, but suffice it to say it’s a long list.

My guess is you have outgrown a number of those behaviors. For example, that probably means you wouldn’t wear one of those crazy outfits today, even on Halloween.

Every time you truly outgrow something, you peel away a layer of conditioning. And with every peel, you reveal.

What gets revealed is you. There you are hiding under layers of conditioning.

Who you are is the light that’s attempting to shine through all the layers. The light never goes out; it just gets dimmed by each layer we adopt.

We had help covering our light through social, cultural and parental conditioning. It really wasn’t our fault. We got what we got, but the sadder news is we believe that’s who we are.

We confuse who we are with the conditioning we’ve received and it keeps our light from shining bright.

There comes a time in everyone’s life where something loses its meaning for you. Something that was so important, no longer is. That’s a layer of conditioning being peeled away. You are coming closer to the light.

This layer peeling, quite often, isn’t a happy event, just a necessary one. It can feel as though you accidentally found out that you’ve been adopted. That unsettling feeling of being deceived is quickly replaced as we bathe in the rejuvenating light of illumination.

Some peeling happens naturally and some is self induced. Either way, it’s beneficial.

Genuine peeling is never preceded by a “should” or an “ought to.” It’s more of an internal nudge to find our light.

You can defend your conditioning until the day you die but that’s just arguing for your limitations. A better plan is to discover your true brilliance.

Anybody got a paint scraper?

All the best,

John
