The Unseen Sorrow of Being "King" for a Day

Key Lesson: No matter how many crowns may seem to temporarily adorn the top of his or her head... no one who fights with life wins anything real.

How to Have an Authentic Life

Many of us live our lives with our eyes closed, vainly hoping that if we don't see something regarding our character or how we go about our lives, then it won't be able to hurt us. For example, we close our eyes to the fact that:

  1. In spite of all of the pain it causes us and others, we still believe that we know what it means to be a winner in life.

  2. Wherever we go and regardless of whom we meet, we still seem to run into the same conflicts and experience the same negative reactions.

  3. Just because we have mastered hiding some character fault of ours doesn't mean that it has stopped hurting those around us.

  4. We would rather have the company of people whom we know have either lied to us or betrayed us... than have to go through life by ourselves.

Each time we catch a glimpse of one of these eye-opening facts, we do so by the grace of a Living Light -- a latent force for perfection that lives within us. This same Higher Intelligence asks us, by its very presence within us, to see ourselves in its light. Such truthful self-seeing is the beginning of having an authentic life... one in which we learn that the initial bitterness of self-truthfulness is the front-runner of our ultimate spiritual betterment.
