Don't Do It! It's a Trick.

What are we saying to someone when we ask them to change some essential aspect of who they are? The message is basically this: "You are wrong. You have no right to exist as you are. But if you do this or be that or change the other, I will grant you that right".

Trouble is, no one has the power to grant you that right. It is yours already by virtue of your existence. Your right to be is a given. Your right to be exactly as you are belongs to your essential self and cannot be taken away, but you can give it up.

Of course, there will be times when we need to make course corrections, behave differently, make better choices. But what I am talking about is being asked to deny or betray who you really are, what you really feel, the full and free and incomparable expression of your marvelous essence,  your unprecedented truth, your unparalleled gifts. 

When anyone asks you to deny your true self, don't do it! It's a trick.
