If You Are Not Living Your Life, You Are Living Other People’s Lives

Life is for you to live. Life is for you. Life is for you to live now! Stop hiding your true self. Stop living other people’s lives. If you have been doing it, stop it! God didn’t bring you here to live other people’s lives. God brought you here to live your REAL life. If you are not living it, it is never too late to change it. God wants you to be happy. God wants you to live your life. God wants you to enjoy your life. Permit me to ask you this question: Why are you against yourself?

If you want to be happy, you must live your own life. You must develop the courage to live your own life. You must stop doing what you think the world wants you to do. Do not do what the world wants you to do. Do not go where the world wants you to go. It is your life. The world should forget about you. You are not here to imitate anyone, but to live your life.

“Self-realization is not an event. It is a lifelong thing.”

It takes courage to do great things. So if you want to live your own life, you have got to double your courage. You have got to work really hard to defend yourself. Because the world is working to change you. Do not let that happen to you. The best gift you can give yourself is the gift of self-realization. According to Sri Ramana Maharshi, “Our own self-realization is the greatest service we can render the world.” You were born to realize who you really are, not to play around. You were born to enjoy the gift of life. You were born to bless your life. You were born to grow, to live, to love, not to waste your time. Remember, self-realization is not a one day thing; it is a lifelong thing. If you want it, go for it.
