You are Unique – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
One of the major struggle of humanity is to trying to find acceptance with everyone from an external point of view.
Everyone has suffered from trying to be accepted. In recent times, I have seen that when I accept myself the way I am, honor myself for the way I am, then it becomes extremely easy to accept others the way they are and this brings in opportunities to be more responsible towards oneself and others.
Here is a beautiful wisdom from Sri Sri Ravi Shankar on One’s Uniqueness.
You Are Unique
Just because a group of people do not accept you as you are, there is no necessity for you to strip yourself of your originality.
You need to think good of yourself, for the world takes you, at your own estimate.
Never stoop down in order to gain recognition.
Never let go of your true self to win a relationship.
In the long run, you will regret that you traded your greatest glory, i.e., your uniqueness for momentary validation.
Even Mahatma Gandhi was not accepted by many people.
The group that does not accept you as YOU is not your world.
There is a world for each one of you, where you shall reign as king or queen, by just being yourself. Find that world; in fact, that world will find you.
What water can do, gasoline cannot and what copper can do, gold cannot. The fragility of the ant enables it to move, and the rigidity of the tree enables it to stay rooted.
Everything and everybody has been designed with a proportion of uniqueness, to serve a purpose that can be fulfilled only by being our unique self.
You, as you alone, can serve your purpose, and I, as I alone, can serve my purpose. You are here to be you; JUST YOU.
There was a time in this world when a Krishna was required, and He was sent. A time when a Christ was required, and He was sent. A time when a Mahatma was required, and he was sent. There came a time when you were required on this
planet, and hence, you were sent.
Let us be the best we can be. In the history of the universe, there has been nobody like you and in the infinity of time to come, there will be no one like you.
Existence should have loved you so much that it broke the mold after making you, so that another of your kind will never get repeated.
You are original.
You are rare.
You are unique.
You are a wonder.
You are a masterpiece; your Master’s piece!
Celebrate your Uniqueness!
