Stay True To Yourself

I am not teaching you anything. I'm just here to help you to explore yourself.

This is your life. Your unique world, mind, body & spirit. We all have different lifestyles, beliefs, personalities, ambitions, dreams, goals, hobbies, habits, and so much more. And this is what makes the world we live in a beautiful place. Just think, what a dull place this would be if we were all similar in our beliefs and choices! One thing about your life is that it's constantly moving, in which direction? well that's up to you!

There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” - Bruce Lee

So are you moving positively forward in life or staying up on your plateau? Think to yourself at this moment, what are some things you've been putting off, small or big, it doesn't matter. Start today, make a list, and start checking them off your list one-by-one. The best time is now to get started. Don't become stagnant, be active in your life, keep building on your character and never be afraid of the decisions you make.

"Life is not a philosophy, it is not a problem; it is a mystery. You have to live it not according to a certain pattern, not according to a conditioning – what you have been told about it – you have to start afresh, from the very scratch." ~ Osho

Do not be in this world to live up to other's expectations and others are not in this world to live up to yours. Always learn something new each day. One thing to always remember is to always be yourself. And always express yourself, have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate him/her. Be your own "character", your own "life style". Don't fall into the molds of what those around expect of you. Break the mold, break free, be different, be unique, unlock the potential and be the person God created you to be.

"Each human individual should think as if he is the first on the earth; he is the Adam or the Eve. Then you can open, you can open to infinite possibilities; then you will be vulnerable, available. And the more vulnerable you are, the more available you are, the greater the possibility of life happening to you."  ~ Osho

That which is never lost cannot be found, and to search for it is absurd. But the moment this absurdity is understood all seeking stops by itself and that which is never lost is found!

That is why I say: Seek and you will not find, because the very seeking is the barrier. The search itself is the hindrance because it creates the seeker, the ego, the illusion that “I am, and I am not"

Do not seek it outside of you and you will find it: Seek within:  This nothingness is the gate. The Gateless gate. ~Osho

Explore. The first thing you should explore is yourself. Who are you, what makes you unique, different, what makes you, YOU! Do not seek it from others of what you should be, believe, think, or live, act, or behave. The real answers lie within you, seek yourself from the inside out. Everything you want, dream, and strive for is hidden within you, the time is now to explore and unlock the potential. Always be yourself, and stay true to yourself and your own beliefs. God is talking to you, inside you, the question is... have you stopped & waited recently to listen? 

Your whole world is available to you, to explore. And in exploring it, you will be surprised. That simultaneously, your inner world is being explored too. Because as you explore the outer world, your inside becomes deeper, your intelligence becomes sharper, your awareness becomes keener.

The effective fulfilled man is one, who has explored both the outer and the inner.
