The Need to Be Seen and Why It Matters

The Need to Be Seen and Why It Matters

One of the greatest human needs is the need to be SEEN, not for who we pretend to be, but for who we truly are underneath it all.  ~ Luminita D. Saviuc

Today I’m thinking about how most of the time we pass by one another without looking into each other’s eyes and recognizing who we truly are.

We walk around pretending the people around us are not people. And we pass by one another as if none of us actually exists. 

What has happened to us? 

The Need to Be Seen and Why It Matters.

Believe it or nor, we all want to be SEEN. I guess that’s one of the reasons why social media is so popular. But the kind of Seeing we want to experience has nothing to do with this whole social media charade where life is presented as if it were a reality TV show and all of us are superstars. 

No. That isn’t it. 

We want to be SEEN. But SEEN for who we truly are, not for who we pretend to be. 

We want people to look deep into our Core and recognize the part of us that is Sacred and Eternal. Because let’s be honest, deep down inside, you and I know that most of us are tired of pretending to be something we are not.

We want the whole world to recognize in us the part of us that is Unlimited, Eternal, and Divine. And treat us as if that’s all there is to us – Beauty, Innocence, Kindness, Purity, Light, Love, and Truth. 

People want to be SEEN…

They want the whole world to look deep within their Being and discover the Greatness of who they truly are.

But who’s going to give that to them? 

People on social media? Their friends and family? The strangers they can’t even look them in the eye while walking on the streets? Their bosses and co-workers?

Who’s going to quench this thirst of ours of being SEEN?

Patience. Love. And Courage.

It takes time, patience, and a great deal of love and compassion to know what human beings are truly all about; It takes courage and it takes love. And I guess that’s one of the reasons why people feel more alone and disconnected than ever. 

Cuz ‘none of us ‘have the time’ to KNOW one another. 

We’re all ‘so busy’ with being busy and becoming ‘the best of the best’ that we have no time left to open our hearts and feel the invisible love and connection that links us all together.

On the surface, we might all look very different from one another, but at the core level, we are all the same. At the core level, we are all ONE, connected with one another in a very deep and powerful way. At the core level, we are essentially the same, all members of one human race. There is no separation except the separation we create in our minds because of our attachment to fear. ~ Luminita D. Saviuc, 15 Things You Should Give Up to Be Happy: An Inspiring Guide to Discovering Effortless Joy

We are not machines. 

Yes. We have tons of virtual friends. And we exchange likes, shares, and so many great comments with all of them. But what does that have to do with anything?

We are not machines. 

We are human beings who long for deep, meaningful, and loving connections; Human Beings who long for the world to stop for a moment and realize that we exist…

Can you just breathe and look around you? 

I know you are busy. And I know you have a trillion things to do. But can you stop for a moment? 

Can you just breathe and look around you? Can you notice where you are going and how fast life is passing you by?

All that you deem important in life always seems to be Out there, never Right Here; never Where you are, never Who you are, and never with Who you are. 

Have you ever wondered why? Or are you too busy for that as well?

Yes, the world is in a hurry. And there are a trillion things you need to do. But none of them are more important than getting to know the Real You.  None of them are more important than learning to SEE yourself as you would want the world to SEE you. 

You are your most valuable possession. The most precious gift you have is YOU. 

Do not let one day pass you by without paying attention to your Self and moving closer to your Truth. 

Let the world do what the world wants to do. And you do You. Because in the end, that’s all that truly matters. 

Be true to yourself. Walk your path with integrity. And trust that in doing so, life will bless you with people and experiences that will be true to you as well.
