Never give up who you are for a we…
I am watching a French movie. I am in the middle, and the music has changed. It is talking about impending doom. My brave, independent, innocent heroine fell for another and I am weeping for her.
I feel that it can lead to no good to give up who we are. Even if we are not anybody special, anybody talented, anybody important.
If and when we give up who we are, for a husband, for a company, for a child, we violate the Original Design.
Source loves you unconditionally, but it doesn’t give up who it is, because of that love. You may love Source unconditionally. You may know that you carry its genetic imprint in yours, yet, you are you, and Source is Source. You need to maintain your individuality, your own will, your own purpose, and accept the guidance to take you where you need to go, not where Source would want you to go.
I know this is very politically incorrect, but it is how you need to be if you want to be an expanding human being, worthy of that name, human being.
I do not recognize anyone’s right to pilfer one minute of my life, nor to any achievement of mine, no matter who makes the claim, how large their number, or how great their need.

He who is a legend in his own time is ruled by that legend. It may begin in absolute innocence but to cover up flaws and maintain the the myth of divine power; one has to employ desperate measures.
