Be Yourself




The roses bloom so beautifully because they are not trying to become lotuses. And the lotuses bloom so beautifully because they have not heard the legends about other flowers.
Everything in nature goes so beautifully in accord, because nobody is trying to compete with anybody. No body is trying to become anybody else.
Everything is the way it is.
Just be yourself and remember you cannot be anything else, whatsoever you do. All effort is futile.
You have to be just yourself……”
Do You agree?

  3. Agree. COMPLETELY!!! And it's always better that way, each of us stays ourselves in the giant garden of life...everyone to his or her own purposes...with different beauties...different fragrances, different shapes...

  6. Hi Surjit!

    What a short but wonderful post! How true that the rose does not envy the lotus and the lotus envys not the rose as well.

    As I read your post, it came upon me how important it is for one to learn to accept oneself. To accept our very own strengths as well as weaknesses. In the world today where Being Slim, Fit, Rich & Successful are measures of a Good Life, we fail to realise that one can't have the best of all worlds. To wish to be so is just plain too stressful on oneself.

    Thanks for the simple post.

    It guides me into contemplations of areas that I should accept myself and not waste too much futile energies in comparisons.

    Blessings!

  15. I think for some people,its very difficult to be themselves, they seem to feel that they must put on a face wherever they go.I think its best to just put aside as much fakeness as possible and live as true to yourself as you can.Then hopefully everything flows together.A lovely post...short and sweet with a profound message.Thank you,Surjit ! :)
