Dare to be yourself:
For a long time in human history, religion was the first and only source of information, knowledge and wisdom. A lot of your mental framework was built on the foundation of your religious beliefs. If your religion forbade you from doing something, you would have never dared to question it.
During those times, questioning your religious and social belief system was a sure way of landing in trouble. For many, even now, religion offers a safe and comfortable refuge. People are attached to religion because it gives them a sense of purpose, belongingness and identity, which is difficult to find in a purely materialistic world. What was supposed to be a guiding light has now become a cozy blanket.
Things have changed. Now, for the first time, you can dare to be yourself. There is nothing holding you down, other than your own fears and apprehensions. For the first time in human history, your life is in your control. All you need to develop is thick skin to deal with those who cannot understand your individualistic way of life.
As long as your life is about you, you will find a way. As long as you don’t settle for something mediocre, you will find your way. As long as you are searching for the path that leads to your highest possible Self, you will find your way.
