“Finding the center of strength within ourselves is in the long run the best contribution we can make to our fellow men. ... One person with indigenous inner strength exercises a great calming effect on panic among people around him. This is what our society needs — not new ideas and inventions; important as these are, and not geniuses and supermen, but persons who can "be", that is, persons who have a center of strength within themselves.”
― Rollo May, Man's Search for Himself

The ultimate freedom is to seek the natural state of your being and to find the courage to live out of this awareness of self.

It is the daily decision to pursue a life only you can live.

Resisting conformity through the practice of recognizing yourself is unnecessary in nature. An acorn becomes an oak. A fawn becomes a deer.

It is also not known by humans with special abilities. They cannot conform. They can only be.

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~ Anaïs Nin

The ultimate freedom is the state of beingness that is yours and yours alone. Your only action is to overcome the pressure of conformity from a culture disconnected from itself.

Exercise your freedom to be who you are and guide others through your example.

Be well,
