Fully Express Yourself, Even If People Don’t Accept You



Fully express yourself, so that you can communicate your innermost thoughts and feelings with others, even if they don’t accept you for who you are.

Most people are afraid to go against the current, and instead choose to compromise themselves, afraid that if they do otherwise nobody will like them. Constantly seeking acceptance from others, they pretend to be different than who they are so as to please them, and hence suppress themselves in all sorts of ways that only results in experiencing tremendous suffering.

But I am telling you: those who don’t like you for who you are don’t deserve a place in your life!

Surprisingly, the moment you become true to yourself and others — that is, when you fully express the essence of your being without lies and pretense — you’ll transform into a magnet that is effortlessly attracting those of a similar mindset to yours — those who will accept you just the way you are and truly enjoy being in your company.

Eventually, it doesn’t matter if you have plenty of fake friends — what matters is that you have real ones, even if they can can be counted on the fingers of one hand. So be yourself, express yourself, and burn your social masks.

Don’t Search For God – He’s Already Within You



Most people are searching for God or the divine outside of themselves, unaware that what they are looking actually resides within their very being.

Here’s a brilliant Hindu story depicting in a nice way how humans have lost touch with their divine nature, as well as pointing out their foolish pursuit of God:

There was once a time when all human beings were gods, but they so abused their divinity that Brahma, the chief god, decided to take it away from them and hide it where it could never be found.

Where to hide their divinity was the question. So Brahma called a council of the gods to help him decide. “Let’s bury it deep in the earth,” said the gods. But Brahma answered, “No, that will not do because humans will dig into the earth and find it.” 

Then the gods said, “Let’s sink it in the deepest ocean.” But Brahma said, “No, not there, for they will learn to dive into the ocean and will find it.” 

Then the gods said, “Let’s take it to the top of the highest mountain and hide it there.” But once again Brahma replied, “No, that will not do either, because they will eventually climb every mountain and once again take up their divinity.” 

Then the gods gave up and said, “We do not know where to hide it, because it seems that there is no place on earth or in the sea that human beings will not eventually reach.”

Brahma thought for a long time and then said, “Here is what we will do. We will hide their divinity deep in the center of their own being, for humans will never think to look for it there.”

All the gods agreed that this was the perfect hiding place, and the deed was done. And since that time humans have been going up and down the earth, digging, diving, climbing, and exploring–searching for something already within themselves. [1]

Don’t search for the God in the outside world — you won’t find the divine there. Just take a deep look within yourself.
