When facilitating classes for Access Consciousness, Brendon wasn’t getting as far as he would have liked to, so he talked with Gary Douglas, founder of Access Consciousness.
Gary asked Brendon if he was exposing himself, being vulnerable, and being that energy of what he was talking about.
He realized he wasn’t being vulnerable, and so he started talking about everything he had decided was wrong with him, and he had an even harder time.
So Brendon went to Dr. Dain Heer who asked him, “Did it ever occur to you that exposing yourself could mean exposing the greatness of you? What if the things you’ve decided are wrong with you aren’t even real?”
He had been so willing to expose the things that he had decided were wrong with him, but he wasn’t willing to expose the things that were great about him.
We’re often afraid of showing people the greatness of us because we don’t want them to take it from us, to judge it, or for it to make us not fit in.
In this class, Brendon talks about how we learn this and where we start giving this up, which is when we start learning about judgment.
We start to cut off so many parts of our lives in order to fit in. We have the idea that in order to fit into the world we need to create an image of us.
It’s not about exposing you to others. It’s about exposing you to you, so you actually start getting a sense of who you are, which is an inspiration and an invitation to others who see that it’s possible.
The idea of walking naked as you is, if you took everything away, everything that you’ve defined you as, who would you be?
If you didn’t have all of those definitions of you, then how easy would it be for you to change all of those things in your life you’ve decided are a problem?
You didn’t come in with these problems. You’ve created them to maintain the definition of you.
If you can go back to the place where you’ve decided you need to fit in and decided you need to cover yourself up in order to not be seen and judged, then perhaps you can have a little bit more of you.
What if judgement was irrelevant to you? How many of you cut off all the parts and pieces of you so they’re not judged?
All you have to do every day to expose you to you is get up. There’s no formula to it. It’s the choice you make in every moment to have you, whatever it takes.
It’s not easy.
What have you defined yourself as that if you didn’t have that definition would allow you to see what it is that you’ve hidden from you?
