“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
The freedom that comes with these words is indescribable. It is absolute and without effort we find ourselves direct evidence of their truth.
I found myself today deep in discussion and the words that arrived at the lips of my mouth were a surprise even to me. I find that as I move forward I don't know how to be anyone but me. As I design and pull the elements together it is organic because it flows from my perspective which has gained a power above and beyond my mind.
It is a reminder to those who still seek something wholly new and unexpected to spring forth from their endeavors. Be yourself and it will come. There is this idea that we are somehow in control but I find that with each year passing I have less control than I would like to believe. There is a certainty in the individual of who I am and the ability to pass this through in my actions and words is what creates the vibration I leave behind.
We are wholly unique and each of us have something wholly unique to offer. Perhaps it is the intense effort we put in being wholly unique that creates the divide between what is and what is forced.
