What Is Beneath Your Beautiful?

Have you ever felt that the YOU presented to the world is NOT the true YOU? Can you honestly say that you are living and showing up as who YOU truly are? Isn’t it exhausting and soul numbing to continue making others happy while suppressing YOU?

It is time to wake up and LIVE!

The poem below aptly titled Gemini written by Charles Raymond (author of From Jesus to JUST US) sadly resonates with many women. Smart, beautiful, strong, women from varying social echelons. Some are successful in their careers and appear to have it all together, entrepreneurs, others in roles as the supportive and resourceful mother and or partner. Yet these beautiful women are dying inside.
Gemini is latin for twins. The ancient texts usually use twins to represent duality…day and night, good and evil, masculine and feminine.
What’s your duality? Who are you hiding?

This house is not my home if I can’t be me
Home is where my heart is
That place where I feel free

I have to hide myself because I’m scared
You may not like what you see
I hear you say you “love me”, but I know its the idea
Of who you think I am and want me to be.

But I’m the one who truly loves you
And that’s why I AM KILLING ME,
So you can be happy
With who YOU WANT me to be.

Today I will test your love and show you
I will remove my covers, open these doors, bare my soul
Because I guarantee the idea you are in love with, really hates ME

I realized I love ME more
And the one you love has died.

If this resonates with you let’s have a conversation. If it doesn’t, please share it with someone else as you never know who is dying beneath their beautiful, dying beneath their perfect.

  1. Yes, I feel that I am living my life the way how the creator wants me to live. I feel am living beneath my privilege.

      Thanks for your response Margaret. I am happy you are living your divine purpose…living the way the creator wants you to live. Share with me what it means to you to be living beneath your privilege.

      It was a pleasure walking with you as you journeyed within and made your discovery Leisha 🙂

  3. Love the poem and the meaning. This is something they don’t teach us at school or curch but it is something that comes with soul searching and inside work. Society is conditioning us to be followers and people pleasers, staying strong and true to our belifes is extremely important. Taking care of the soul and our happiness is our main responsibility, and only than we can bring something beautiful to the world.

      I absolutely agree with you BSM. Taking care of the soul…our SELF is critical in our quest to create a beautiful world. True, we are not taught this in schools and churches and that is why it is so important to share this message once we have become aware of it.

  4. This is me unmasking my beauty. Living in this consciousness brings so much awareness and soul searching. Thank you Curline for taking me on a journey to self discovery. I find it’s a continuous process , your teachings help to start the process and live in so much awareness.

      I Love it! “This is me unmasking my beauty”….and YOU ARE such a Beautiful Soul. It was my pleasure taking this journey of self discovery with you. It worked for you because YOU DID THE WORK:) and are continuing to do so. That is key in showing up as your authentic, powerful SELF. It’s encouraging to see you positively impacting the lives of women as you also teach them to live in awareness as they “Unmask their Beauty” and show what’s really “Beneath their Beautiful”.
