If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
When we are born, we are wise, loving, beautiful, amazing and for the most part whole. We are our TrueSelves, but as soon as we start on this ride called life, we start stepping out of that self. The reasons can be many; examples in my case include family, school, friends, etc. All of these factors shaped me into who I became. I had my roadblocks from an early age, but something inside of me knew life was beautiful and still worth it. So I became what many call a rebel. How was I a rebel? I stood up for myself; I spoke up; I discussed with authority figures, teachers and religious leaders, which caused me in a couple of cases to be kicked out of places.
I was always respectful and full of joy. Why is it then when I want to be my TrueSelf people don’t like it? Does society pull us apart from the Self? With that in mind, I created my life and, most of the time, had the support of my loved ones, who also thought I was a rebel. I kept searching, questioning, journaling, etc. I became friends with everybody, no matter what they believed. In the end I knew and I am still sure we are all on different pages but from the same book.
As I became obsessed with joy, happiness and manifesting what I wanted, I kept searching. I used whatever there was to make my life better and tried to share it as much as I could with my family and friends through my way of life. Still, people thought I was a rebel. People thought my life was easy; what people didn’t know was that I also had pain and fears, but I realized that however I reacted I would make my own heaven or hell. So why not try my best to have a good attitude, right? Guess what? Life tested me many times and I kept going. It is not always easy, but what makes it better is that I am aware; awareness is the key.
So I made up my own definition: what is my TrueSelf? TrueSelf is that divine person that was created by whatever you believe created you. Society most of the time pulls you away from that, and life, in order to get you back on track, keeps giving you tests called your experiences to make you go back to that TrueSelf who is amazing, lovable and worthy. But because of fear, we sometimes make decisions that keep us away from coming back to your TrueSelf.
It is time to come back to your TrueSelf. What matters is your light, your essence. When you are your real you, you will be amazed at how everything works in life. We all want a better world, and it is only possible working for a better us first.
