Being Yourself It is very easy to conform to what your society or your parents and teachers tell you. That is a safe and easy way of existing; but that is not living. To live is to find out for yourself what is true. ~Jiddu Krishnamurti Once conform, once do what others do because they do it, and a kind of lethargy steals over all the finer senses of the soul. ~Michel de Montaigne To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything is itself to succumb to the violence of our times. ~Thomas Merton Just being ourselves is the biggest fear of humans. We have learned to live our life trying to satisfy other people’s demands. We have learned to live by other people’s points of view because of the fear of not being accepted and of not being good enough for someone else. ~Don Miguel Ruiz You don’t have to let yourself be terrorized by other people’s expectations of you. ~Sue Patton Thoele The most exhausting thing in life is being insincere. ~Anne Morrow Lindbergh Living up to an image that you have of yourself or that other people have of you is inauthentic living. ~Eckhart Tolle We cannot live in a world that is not our own, in a world that is interpreted for us by others. An interpreted world is not a home. Part of the terror is to take back our own listening, to use our own voice, to see our own light. ~Hildegard Von Bingen We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others, that in the end we become disguised to ourselves. ~Francois de la Rochfoucauld Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts. ~Albert Einstein If God had wanted me otherwise, He would have created me otherwise. ~Johann Von Goethe To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. ~Thich Nhat Han How could there be any question of acquiring or possessing, when the one thing needful for a man is to become–to be at least, and to die in the fullness of his being. ~Antoine de St. Exupery When you examine the lives of the most influential people who have ever walked among us, you discover the thread that winds through them all. They have been aligned first with their spiritual nature and only then with their physical selves. ~Albert Einstein The search for self-worth begins by finding what is indestructible inside, then letting it be. ~Prudence Kohl Your treasure house is within; it contains all you’ll ever need. ~Hui-Hai Let each one turn his gaze inward and regard himself with awe and wonder, with mystery and reverence. ~Henry Miller You can discover the underlying bliss of simply being yourself in the face of whatever arises. ~Gangaji I am not what I think I am. I just am. ~Jaimal Yogis There is a presence, a silence, a stillness which is here by itself. There is no doer of it, no creator of this stillness. It is simply here in you, with you. It is the fragrance of your own self. There is nothing to do about this, it is naturally present. This fragrance of peace, this spaciousness, it is the fragrance of your own being. ~Mooji You are Happiness, you are Peace, you are Freedom. Do not entertain any notions that you are in trouble. Be kind to yourself. Open to your Heart and simply Be. ~Papaji You don’t have to strive for it. You only have to connect. Sit and feel the Presence, be part of the Divine. Then nothing in the world can tire you. ~Sri Ravi Shankar I express who I am simply by being it. ~Jason Nelson Why try to be special when you can simply be yourself? ~Mooji People who shine from within don’t need the spotlight. ~Rick Warren If you’re able to be yourself, then you have no competition. All you have to do is get closer and closer to that essence. ~Barbara Cook When you are just you, without thinking or trying to say something special, just saying what is on your mind and how you feel, then there is naturally self- respect. ~Shunryu Suzuki When I’m trusting and being myself as fully as possible, everything in my life reflects this by falling into place easily, often miraculously. ~Shakti Gawain As we open our hearts to others we begin to discover the truth of our inner beauty, inner strength and inner light. ~Susan Jeffers Peace of simply being is not only a reward in itself but a blessing to all who encounter it. ~Catherine Ingram Being the knowing creates a clear space of loving presence that allows all things and all people to be as they are. ~Eckhart Tolle Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save: they just stand there, shining. ~Anne Lamott
