No validation is required. That is, no validation from anything outside of your own self. If you are seeking validation from other people, you are seeking in vain. Why? Because everyone and everything in your awareness is only reflecting your thoughts, beliefs, and assumptions to you.
This is something I wish I had learned at a much younger age. Although, at the same time, I understand the journey now. The journey is that we are all experiencing life to teach us what we need to learn to realize that we are all one. We are dreaming this dream of life as God, and one day we will all awaken, individually as God. The bible states that we are called one-by-one. You are already all that you seek.
A Divine Being
If you are anything like I used to be, always seeking validation from other people, then again, you are seeking in vain. You are a divine being wearing the body you occupy, the garment of flesh that you wear. Anyone can reach beyond the limits of man's contraction by realizing that you are dreaming and thus on a journey of awakening. So, you are already everything that you are looking for in others. There is absolutely no validation required from anyone or anything outside of yourself.
To get to the point of not needing to seek validation, it really comes down to working on one self-concept. If I were to reflect, I could say that I sought assurance because I always thought I was missing something. It took me four decades to find what I was missing, but I found it within myself. When I first heard that God is within us, that we are all one, it resonated with me. I believed it and had absolutely no doubt. I no longer feel the need to seek validation from anything outside of self is a very freeing, peaceful feeling.
I hope that what I am saying will resonate with you. Just as the teaching that brought me to this awareness resonated with me, all you seek is within. Remember that!
