Life is journey. Life is not about imitation; it is about being your true self. No matter what you are going through in your life, you are not your circumstances. You are you. You are powerful. You are a blessing to yourself. You are a blessing to your friends. You are a blessing to the world.
By knowing yourself, by being true to yourself, by loving yourself, by making yourself happy, by believing in yourself, no one can make you unhappy. Because you are in charge of your life. According to Eckhart Tolle, “By knowing yourself as the awareness in which phenomenal existence happens, you become free of dependency on phenomena and free of self seeking in situations, places, and conditions.” You are not without; you are within. So if you want to know yourself, look within.

“All that we see or seen is but a dream within a dream.”- Edgar Allen Poe
“Every step in human progress, from the first feeble stirrings in the abyss of time, has been opposed by the great majority of men. Every valuable thing that has been added to the store of man’s possessions has been derided by them when it was new, and destroyed by them when they had power. They have fought every new truth ever heard of, and they have killed every truth-seeker who got into their hands.”- H.L. Mencken
“Doubt and fear should be rigorously excluded; they are disintegrating elements which break up the straight line of effort, rendering it crooked, ineffectual, useless.”- James Allen
“He who has conquered doubt and fear has conquered failure.”- James Allen
“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.”- Mark Twain
“Where the willingness is great, the difficulties cannot be great.“- Niccolo Machiavelli
