When you reconnect to your authentic self (which happens every moment), you can’t be aware of reconnecting—of gaining anything—but only of expressing freely who you are.
Awareness of reconnecting to your Soul only brings a renewed sense of separation.
The ego strives for authenticity. Soul wishes only to be expressed.
The moment you become aware of being authentic/connecting to your soul/serving the enlightenment transmission, you aren’t. Then the only thing to “do” is to let go of the need to be authentic, which is itself the proof of your authenticity.
There IS nothing else to BE but authentic.
