Why You Are Already Enough.

And why you have always been enough as you.

We have all had this thought.

The thought that makes us think we are no longer enough.

I have had this thought too.

Do you want to know why we think we are no longer enough?

Because we all learn to think this way about who we are.

Because all of our minds got conditioned to think about who we think we need to be.

Your mind got conditioned to think about who you think you need to be too.

Which is why it is called the Human Condition.

Because all of our minds get conditioned to think we need to be more than who we already are.

Your mind got conditioned to think you need to be more than who you already are too.

Which is why we all learn to think we need to be more.

You learned to think you need to be more too.

More than who you already are.

More than you.

But think about it.

How is it possible to be more than who you are?

When you already are you?

Your mind simply conditioned to think about you.

As a thought.

A thought that makes you think you are no longer enough.

And without even thinking about it, your mind got stuck in this thought.

From the constant barrage of media and images that make you think you are lacking something.

From the constant barrage of opinions and judgments that make you thinkthere is something wrong.

From the constant barrage of thoughts inside your own head that make you think you are somehow less.

So this how you learned to see you too.

As a thought that makes you think nothing you do is ever enough.

Nothing you have is ever enough.

Nothing you are is ever enough too.

Because you no longer see you.

Who you are.

And you are not a thought.

Which is how your mind got conditioned to think that Enough is no longer enough.

Because this is how you learned to think about you.

So you no longer know what Enough means.

Because all of your thoughts make you think less of you.

Which is why you think you need to do more.

Have more.

Be more.

Yet the more you do, the more tired you feel.

The more you have, the more you want.

And the more you think, the more depressed you feel.

Because when you no longer understand how Enough is enough, nothing is ever enough anymore.

Which is why you can be married, have a family, a nice house and a steady job — and still be unhappy.

Why you can be single and carefree, have your health and all the freedom in the world — and still can’t find joy.

Because you no longer know what Enough is.

Which is why you no longer know who you are too.

Because you are enough.

You have always been enough.

Which is why there is only one you.

Because you are enough.

As you are.

As you already are too.

Which is why no one else can do what only you can do.

Be you.

You can no longer see it because you are always in a thought.

A thought about you.

You can no longer see it because your own thoughts are blocking you from seeing it for you too.

You.

Who you are.

And you are not a thought.

You simply haven’t learned everything your mind can do too.

Because your mind learned this pattern of thinking.

Which means your mind can learn a new practice too.

To understand what to do when the thoughts arrive.

To understand how to break the old patterns of thoughts to release you.

Because your mind can learn how to release these thoughts.

Your mind can learn how to release your own thoughts about you.

The thoughts that make you think you need to be more.

The thoughts that make you think less of you.

From the Understanding.

The Understanding of You.

Who you are.

And you are enough.

You have always been enough.

Simply being you.

You can keep denying this Truth.

This Truth about You.

And keep struggling with your thoughts.

Or, you can live in the Understanding.

The Understanding of You.

Who you have always been.

Who you still are too.

Don’t be more.

Be you.

Because you are enough.

You have always been Enough.

Simply being who you are too.
