This is the case whether we work on our human self or on discovering what we are: it is a process of pulling the rug out from under ourselves.
It is a process of going outside the familiar. Allowing what appeared as true for us to go. Be willing to be wrong. Allowing familiar identities to go. Exploring the truth in the reversals of our habitual beliefs and identifications.
We pull the rug out from under ourselves, find what is already more true for us, stay with that for a while, getting more familiar with it, and then repeat.
At our human level, we discover and embrace disowned sides, embracing more the fullness of the evolving wholeness of who we are.
As what we are, we notice ourselves through inviting beliefs and identifications with stories and identities to fall way, revealing ourselves as what we always and already are.
