Meditation: Your Authentic Self
(Use the player above to listen to this meditation.)
Our Authentic Self (or our unconditional self) arises from our spiritual and evolutionary natures. In contrast, our normal human “being” nature has sense organs and brain functions that have the capacities to interpret the conditional world of ever-changing events. In our conditional existence we must cope by activating our human “doing” nature in which we act to grow, maintain, and avoid destruction.
The limited consciousness associated with our human doing struggles in life generate most of the problems that we experience in life. Fortunately, our spiritual and evolutionary natures provide the means to step beyond and resolve most of these human problems.
For instance, beyond the events of everyday life, our spiritual, evolutionary consciousness remains free to simply be aware of whatever arises. Our deeper witness nature remains beyond time, place, and phenomena and introduces what I call our “authentic self.”
I share this meditation to help you experience the four fundamental dynamics of our authentic self. Awareness of these dynamics can free us to transcend, yet include, the struggles of everyday living. We can then activate the hidden powers of our authentic self to transform the world in ways that our conditional self lacks the awareness to accomplish. Our authentic self also naturally places us on the spiritual and evolutionary path to healthy sustainable living—the ultimate course correction that we need in this troubled, conditional world in which we live.
If you are interested, we are willing to continue to create meditations and audios similar to this one, such as learning to ground in the five levels of ever-present love. Thus, the combination of our authentic self supported by five natural forms of love frees us to transform the world into a healthy sustainable future.

We have the opportunity to create a grassroots movement to awaken ourselves, others, and the entire human community to the untapped powers that we all embody, so we can finally create a world that works for all.
