Audio | Randy Spelling: The Difference Between Chasing Happiness and Living Authentically In Truth

Welcome to Episode 56 of The Coaching Parlour podcast! In this episode, join me and my guest alchemist: Randy Spelling while we discuss The Difference Between Chasing Happiness and Living Authentically In Truth.

Whether we are aware or not, many of us are traveling through our journey chasing happiness, believing that is what’s going to change our life for the better and lead us to the promise land of freedom,

yet we approach the mirage that appears as what we believe as happiness we end up disappointed,cheated, and disillusioned. We fall into the trappings and vices that temporary numb the pain, but in the long run does more harm than good.

In chasing what you may deem as the “good life,” you have may have sacrificed your relationships, overall health and wellness, and, at the end of the day, still find yourself with a life and work that brings you little in return..

Especially for the amount of time, energy you are spending on it, and sacrifice you have made

This leads to what many are currently experiencing, The Dark night of the soul in the form of heartache, lacking,depression, anxiety, and frustration.

Chasing happiness will not help solve the challenges you face or the emptiness you feel.

The antidote of this situation is to discover our Truth and pursue meaning vs happiness, and that includes exploring facets of ourselves that entails the duality of beauty and ugliness, joy & pain, shadows & periods of illuminations.

Once we chisel away and get to the core of who we are, we are to embrace it, integrate and anchor ourselves in that Truth, and only then can we set out on journey of living more authentically before.

Of course with the understanding that as we get further along our path, more of our Truth will be revealed to us. . Happiness will reappear again, but only this time internally vs. the external mirage you experienced before.

In this episode we are having a delightful conversation with fellow Life & business Coach, Randy Spelling. in our discussion we talk about the difference between chasing happiness & living authentically, the dark night of the soul experience, the trappings of fame, and why we need to be anchored in our truth, to fully take ownership of our life.

Join us as we go over key points such as:

The difference between living authentically vs. chasing happiness.

  • Randy’s journey through The Dark Night Of The Soul.
  • How celebrity & fame are both amplifiers and mirrors of the collective’s shadow.
  • Why it’s important to anchor yourself in YOUR Truth!
