SELF-REALIZATION is the life’s goal of the Free Man.
That is, learning who you are – YOU, not what you’ve been instructed or are expected to be, not your parent’s or guardian’s or teacher’s (or society’s) lives and biases and beliefs and opinions, not THEM – YOU – learning who you are and living free as that person, whether that remains constant or you change every week – whoever YOU are. What you want. What makes you love life. All else is second priority.
That is self-realization. That is ‘letting go.’ That is being free. And that is your goal. Be it now, ten minutes from now, or a year from now. Continually. Always your first goal and priority.
Self-realization is about standing apart from the masses. One of my young weaknesses was in trying to be normal – in how I looked, talked, wrote, LIVED.
I wasted so much time trying to fit in!
Normal is overrated. Normal is boring. Normal sucks.
We’re all unique. Be you. And be free.
