Trust Only Yourself
Then, I am taking back when I spot men who have seemed to transform overnight. These scrawny mousy little men were now ripped with muscles that were more defined than a comic book villain.
Then, I watch as they unzip their fanny pack and began to count more pills than a pharmacy clerk. Did these guys really think that they were into fitness? They had to understand that ingesting pills that the FDA refused to approve was not only unhealthy but also deadly. What possesses people to put poison into the their bodies?
I believe that people are rack with haunting nagging thoughts of unworthiness. The voices in their heads make them believe that they are not good enough. So they focus on the ideal. However, over time this kind of behavior becomes an obsession. Because they are more focused on looking better as opposed to being better.
We have all heard about the dire effect of muscle enhancers; the loss of hair, the weakening of the immune system, and the male testes shriveling into two dried up peas. This results in a low sperm count and makes it difficult for a man to conceive. But who cares if a guy doesn’t look good in a speedo. A man’s bulging massive muscles will outshine that tiny little bikini any day.
Big muscles, coupled with baby oil, and a tan in a can, is what everyone needs to feel important. Sadly, these people are so focused on the ideal, that they become fanatics. They are willing to put poison in their bodies to try and meet expectations that are really unrealistic. They fail to realize that the ideal is the poison. These are just different thoughts that cause people to feel like they just aren’t good enough.
Spiritually, virtually all practices emphasizes acceptance of all things. This includes the acceptance of self. Very few people understand that we inherit certain thoughts, just as we inherit certain physical traits. These qualities are inherent in our DNA and are passed down from generation to generation, through the collective consciousness of our ancestral link.
Unfortunately, we don’t work to clear these thoughts. Instead, we continue our pursuit of the ideal. Or we simply pretend that we are the ideal. Both of these behaviors stems from the feeling of insignificance. Our appearance or muscles get stronger. While our testes, our souls get smaller. The hardest thing in the world is to just be your-self. However, operating from a basis of truth is the most liberating feeling in the world.
