What is imitation: : the act, practice or art of copying the manner or expression of an other:

"Every human being is unique. God never creates carbon copies. He always creates original.He is truly a creator and never repeats. But most us go on living in imitation. We are trying to be some one else. And that becomes cause of our failures.

We must, therefore, learn to respect ourselves and accept ourselves as we are.That is only possibility and we can not be otherwise. And rather there is no need to be otherwise, because God has created every one of us as unique.

The moment we start living as 'ourselves' we shall find ourselves at peace and feel the bliss of life."


"Imitation is suicide"

(Ralph Waldo Emerson)

    The purpose of life is to express who we are, to shine our unique light, to bring into existence the best we are!

  3. Be Yourself! but learn from everyone. Learning only from our own experience is like learning the traffic rules by accident.

    You can imitate but find the good one worthy to imitate.

    In the Bible, in 3 John 1:11 "Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God."
