Excerpt from my mind

YOU SEE, I USED TO BE JUST LIKE YOU.

ADHERING TO THE SAD GUIDELINES PROMOTED BY THE WESTERN CULTURE.

I WAS NOTHING BUT A COMPILATION OF EVERYONE I HAD MET.

I DARED TO NOT QUESTION THE STRUCTURE.

I WAS AFRAID TO BE DIFFERENT.

I SILENCED MY AUTHENTIC SELF.

LIVING IN A CONSTRUCTED ILLUSION.

IDENTIFYING AS MY JOB TITLE.

ACCEPTING PAY BELOW MY WORTH.

TOO FEARFUL TO SPEAK UP, TOO FEARFUL TO LEAVE, TOO FEARFUL OF WHAT OTHERS WOULD THINK.

BUT I LEARNED THERE WAS A LIGHTER WAY TO LIVE.

AND I PRAY YOU LEARN THE SAME –

WHETHER IT IS THROUGH INSIGHT OR GREAT EXPERIENCE,

THAT YOU CAN LIVE A DIFFERENT WAY,

A LIBERATING WAY, AN AUTHENTIC WAY.

AND WHEN YOU CATCH THAT GLIMPSE (SELF-DISCOVERY, HOPE, HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS, CONNECTION TO THE UNIVERSE, ETC)

EVEN IF IT IS JUST FOR A FLEETING MOMENT,

YOU WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN.
