Living true to yourself. "I tore myself away from the safe comfort of certainties through my love for truth - and truth rewarded me." If there is one thing I can ever promise you, it is this: you will reach the tip of Maslow’s pyramid and you will be in unconditional happiness if you stay true to yourself. There’s nothing more important in life than what you feel and think in your inner being. Ambition is our attempt to go beyond ourselves, and true ambition is beyond insecurity. . It’s not about being better than this person or that person, or accumulating this thing or that thing, but it’s about experiencing the full spectrum of what a human body can be and do. What you can be and do.
Truth that is pure is the most beautiful, and the simpler it’s expression the deeper is the impression it makes. Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others.
We’re self-conscious for the same reason that we’re self-confident: a healthy ego. We tacitly assume that other people think about us and judge us just as much as we think about and judge ourselves. The liberating truth, of course, is that everybody else is too worried about themselves to really care what you do.
Pursuing what you must pursue for yourself, you need to realize that only you can do that. Then when you progress and experience and accomplish bits and pieces, you’re able to share it with another and create a greater whole: love; an unworldly feeling. To really love another, you need to love yourself. And to love yourself, you need to know yourself. And to know yourself, you have to stay true to yourself.
