“Step into the fire of self-discovery. This fire will not burn you, it will only burn what you are not.”
A man came to see a counsellor.
The counsellor asked, ‘How can I help you today?’
‘Well’, replied the man. Last month I discovered that I am Buddha.’
However, when I tell others that I am Buddha, they judge me, they dismiss me, or they laugh at me.
But when ‘I am’ Buddha, everyone loves me and wants to be with me.
The counsellor replied, ‘When you know who you are, there is no need to convince another who you are.’
Simply ‘be’ that which you are and life will flow through you.

So true Barbara I agree! Thank you so much. Many blessings to you 🙏🏻🧡
So true, Karen! It brought to mind an incident with a neighbor during my first year in Brazil. As I struggled to chat with the woman, she told me to stop pretending to be a foreigner to impress others.
I love people who have no fear to speak the truth! It wakes us up. Great example Rosaliene! Happy New Year 🥰🧡
