Benjamin Creme said, “No one can lead you. You are born to be aware of yourself, to know the Master in yourself.” Why are you not comfortable with yourself? Why are you not happy with your life? The answer is simple: because you are not “aware of yourself.” And to be comfortable with yourself, you must know who you are. Do not try to be like another person.

You are not born to imitate other people. You are here on this earth to make your own statement. No matter how you look, to know who you are, you must be aware of yourself. Because no one knows you more than you know yourself. Do not get busy try to defeat another person. Instead, why not focus on making yourself better than you were yesterday? Do not imitate anybody. You have what it takes to do what you are put here to do. According to Benjamin Creme, “If you follow others instead of being yourself, you lose your sparkle and cannot reflect the light of individuality. Without that light, there is no progress in life.” So if you want to reinvent your life, you must follow yourself, not other people.

If you are not happy with yourself, check your thoughts. What are you thinking about? What are you worrying about? Are you doing what you are supposed to be doing? If yes, do it with love. If not, why not?

Look, you are not going to find happiness if you are doing the wrong thing. For example, if you want to be happy, you must think the right thought. And do not forget that your happiness is within your reach. It is within you. To reach it, to make yourself really happy, you must focus on yourself. You must compete against yourself, not against other people. Do not worry about what other people are doing. Instead of doing that, why not use your time to love yourself.

Things happen. You cannot control everything that is happening around you. But you can control yourself. Change what you can change. Make better what you can make better. Let go of what you cannot change. So, whatever it is that is making you unhappy, whatever it is that is distracting you, whatever it is that is holding you back, the best way forward is to choose yourself, is to choose life, is to choose love. Because if you are for yourself, no one can be against you.
