“If you don’t watch it people will force you one way or the other, into doing what they think you should do, or into just being mule-stubborn and doing the opposite out of spite.” Ken Kesey
Have you ever noticed how people are not really behaving naturally. To be more accurate it’s like they are a character of themselves.
This realization has occurred to me through many years of observing human behavior. Begin seeing how the majority of people including children, often get assigned roles to play in life.
When you are introduced to someone into your life, they will give you an idea of who they think they are by the way they treat you, or the way they want to be treated by you.
It’s a kind of song and dance that goes on between people, testing each other until there is an agreement. You will notice this when two people are not getting along. What is happening is that these two people have stepped out of character and are fighting to get back into alignment with who they are. They have grown tired of character playing and being someone else.
My question to you is, do you believe that you are a character in this world? It’s o.k. to role play because it is part of the human condition but the role that you play is not really who you are in essence.
Remember Your True Self
When was the last time you walked in nature by yourself ? Walking in nature is a great way to get back in tune with your true self and not the role character that you have been playing for most of your life.
Every person that you meet will assign a roll for you to play. Will you continue playing? Or will you be an authentic conscious being that is participating in this reality.
Sometimes just being aware of the fact that you are role playing is enough to keep you from being overly immersed in it and losing who you really are.
Why Do We Role Play
Our personal identity is who we think we are, but this is not entirely true. Our personal identity is merely one aspect of the self. We also are the soul, the conscious awareness that is all and connected to everything. We came from a place where there were no roles, we just were. Pure conscious energy is our true self and we are having a human experience in the body during this linear experience.
When we are born into a human body only a small part of us is in the body. The majority of us is still connected to source energy or the creator God. There are also parallel realities that we can be in all the time. Some people believe that when we are having a dream that we really are experiencing another reality.
During our lifetime it is easy to get caught up in your role and what I am reminding is that you must remember who you really are. Pure Conscious Energy manifested into a human body for a limited experience.
If you are indeed role playing than why not choose a role that you enjoy. I invite you now to choose a new role for yourself. One that is wealthy, healthy, happy and blessed!
“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask.” – Jim Morrison
