We should be authentic in our lives. I always tell people to be themselves and not to act like being someone else. In the Darshan day before yesterday I was saying what I always say: accept yourself, respect yourself and love yourself. And I added something very important. To accept yourself does not mean to take over the other person's idea of how you should be. Maybe we like to look and compare what others are doing and how they are doing it. Perhaps your friends like to go to a certain meditation group and enjoy it there very much. Normally you like exactly the same things but there you just don't feel well. You don't like the teacher or the atmosphere which the others are praising that much. Then you will start comparing. Are you doing something different from the others? Are you maybe even doing something wrong and shouldn't you feel in the same way as your friends? Please don't start fighting with yourself. You are you.
Many people tend to play a role of how they would like to be and how they would like to be seen by others. But it is so much easier and nicer just to be yourself. Others will like this the most! You will be loved for being who you are. We are not like cars, all the same model. Each of us is unique. Each unique soul is great how it is. Differences make us special and we should always listen to our heart what it is saying to that. Feel it. This is you. You do not need to accept any other identity. I feel it would be very funny if they start cloning humans. They are experimenting and succeeding on animals but what will happen if they manage to make someone with the same genes as you? Will he have your identity? It is so amazing that we are all different and special. And why do you need to be a sheep then? Be yourself, it is so wonderful!
