We spend our whole lives trying to be all the different roles that the mind has created for us.
Instead, we could save ourselves all the energy and suffering by just being ourselves. By being our true essence means we do not have to be anything or have to live up to an image and constantly maintain it.
To be truly free we need to step off the path, let go of fitting in, to not feel we have to follow the crowd, to not have to agree with someone, to not have to be polite, to not worry that we might offend someone.
We have to be ourselves, not the ego-driven self-image that the mind creates, I mean our true essence from our soul.
We have to break the chains of conformity and be brave enough to be vulnerable and show the world the true light from within us
We’ll spend a lifetime being polite, agreeing, fitting in and doing what others want and yet suffer from not being able to be ourselves.
Freedom is to just be. We don’t have to become anything, we can be nobody and be content that we no longer have to be constrained by mind created roles we feel we have to play to be liked and fit in.
