Be who you are. Whatever way of living comes easiest for you, know that is who you are.
Your dreams, your passions, your hopes and your fears are what you define as who you are. And this is truth, to you. Someone might say that what you’re doing is wrong, it’s boring, it’s crazy, it’s weird, and it’s dumb. They might want to conform you to them, as this will help them make sense of the world better.
If you are out doing your own thing, people get nervous. They think they’re missing out, they don’t have their own thing yet. They will try to bring you down. It may be a subconscious act, they don’t even know what they’re doing. It’s become habitual.
This phenomena applies also on a social scale. The ego in you wants to be the best, wants to out do everyone. This triggers impulses to not only improve yourself, but if someone is going too far ahead you have to pull them back. The tall poppy syndrome.
Through out our lives we have picked up cues and been accustomed to this. We have an inbuilt mechanism to balance us out, so we don’t stand out too much. Times when we did stand out, we got shot down. We got hurt.
You have to be brutally honest with yourself, and who you are. Ruthlessness has to be directed towards any thought or opinion that goes agaisn’t your core values. To do this you have to go inwards, and takes a bit of inner searching. Find out your true self, what you want to be and what your dreams are. Listen to your heart. That means that slight feeling you have in your being, a sort of intuition, that slightly tugs you towards a direction. You’ll know it when it happens.
You must stay silent, because the heart isn’t loud. If you let the mind run static, it will drown out the voice of your inner being. Listen to your inner voice, let it guide you to be who you are.
Once you have become, not anything in particular, but just simply become, then you know your true self. Let this guide you towards your dreams. The most blissful life you will ever have comes from this knowing.
You are just consciousness.
