Be Who You Are Inside

Aug 17, 2007
It is enough for you to be who you are. That is all you need to do to enjoy a great life.

It is our inauthenticity to what is real that causes us grief.

Our conditioning is not our friend. It is our enemy. It keeps us locked in unhappy postures, playing roles that diminish our grandeur.

Who you are, naturally, without artifice and pretence is enough. It is beauty and power.

The human race is programmed for misery. Our problem-solving minds find problems. Solutions lie in creativity, but creativity comes from another place, where a fresh perspective is possible, where hope is rampant, where you, in your essence, really reside.

This world is but a dream, but because we are unhappy, we have turned it into a production of nightmares.

At any moment, at any time, it is possible to transform, to renew, to gain energy and move forward in a richer, higher, more fulfilling direction. But we seldom appreciate the originality of either ourselves or our unique situation in the world because we are conditioned to observe limited patterns and orbit around limited experiences.

We hurry through our days, savoring nothing, our heads bent with troubles; and when one heartache ceases, another rushes in to take it's place.

No one is happy, and the world is a troubled place.

We designed it to be this way. Since birth, we have been taught to betray ourselves and to conform to meaningless rituals and patterns of limitations.

People moan the fact that they will die and even the world itself may die, because the collective forces of chaos seem never to cease, but how few have ever lived in the first place and did we not band together to damage the world with our collective angst?

Today the sun may have shone on you and the rain may have touched your skin, birds may have flown in the air above, and the flowers may have opened up as you walked by them, but did you notice any of it?

Why do you not see the extraordinary in the ordinary?

It is because you are not where you are, you are somewhere else, regretting the past or fearing the future.

You are never anywhere but here and there never is a time other than now and you are never anybody else except who you are inside.

When you glimpse for just a moment the magnitude of your own presence, then life will have begun for you.
