The Real You

The Real You

The real you is not a place you arrive at, a new credential, or a new career. Being the real you means to know inside yourself that there is no holding back, that in every situation of your life you can feel fully expressed. Many people are walking around with unconscious strait- jackets on that prevent them from being truly free. The Civil Rights Movement took off not simply because Rosa Parks was tired of being abused and became brave. She changed the movement because in the way she responded it was as if she was declaring, “This is my seat, and
I am not moving!”

Often, the real you and the real me are too quick to give up our seats. We are too quick to back down from what we really believe in. The world changed the day Rosa Parks declared she would not give up her seat.
How would the world change if you said, “My seat in life is to express how animals are wrongly treated” or “My seat in life is to show people how to be thriving and energetic” or “My seat in life is to show people how to have a successful marriage” or “My seat in life is to show people how to be healthy and happy”?

Celebrating the tremendous freedom of the real you means being able to dance and feel and sing while claiming your “seat” in life and being unwilling to give it up

Siddhartha did not wake up being shielded to real, authentic life as a human being. He saw what was real to others and was guided to understand the way of suffering and of peace because he could sit in both realities. Every day we hear stories that are beyond shocking and within many of us…

It is in the nature of your unique path to reveal itself.

It is in the nature of your unique path to reveal itself.

Your path does not wish to hide or be undiscovered. Until it is discovered, its purpose for existing is not realized. If you do not see it clearly, ask it to show itself to you. Do not be afraid to call out for the right path to be revealed… It is not your duty to…
