Reclaiming Authenticity: Stop Placing Others and Yourself on Pedestals
Experiencing feelings of being 'less than' or viewing others as superior are common reflections of how we perceive ourselves in relation to those around us. These perceptions stem from non-useful thoughts that emerge from our experiences and internalized beliefs, creating a divide where we feel either below or above someone else. Acknowledging these thoughts as inauthentic can help us understand that they do not truly represent our authentic selves.

The concept of placing individuals on pedestals—whether it's elevating others above us or placing ourselves above them—stems from our ego's stealthy operations, an action that misaligns us from who we are at our core. Becoming conscious of this tendency allows us to dismantle these imaginary pedestals, fostering a healthier mindset that acknowledges our equality and connectedness with others. By recognizing and addressing these ego-driven vanities, we can move toward living more authentically, aligned with our true essence and purpose.

A transformative approach involves realizing that such notions of superiority or inferiority only serve to disconnect us from our authentic selves and others. By employing techniques that help dissolve these barriers, such as recognizing the universality of love and connection, one can reclaim authenticity and enhance personal growth. This process not only benefits individual well-being but also strengthens our collective journey towards embracing a more balanced and integrated way of interacting with the world and each other.
