Here’s a great, and ancient story to help you see how to be yourself and see better results. Once upon a time there was a rich and successful shoemaker who decided to send his two best salesmen exploring new markets. Africa was the only continent where the shoemaker was not yet selling shoes. He said to his salesmen, “Go there and find new territories, don’t stay in the cities, explore the countryside and then tell me what you find.”
Both salesmen flew to their destination and started diligently exploring new territories as their boss instructed them. After a few days, the first salesman called his boss and told him with a sad tone in his voice, “Boss, I have bad news, there is no market for us here, no one has shoes and everybody is walking barefoot!”
A few hours later, the boss got a call from his second salesman, who was totally excited and enthusiastically screaming in the phone “Boss, boss, it’s amazing, there is a huge market here, no one has shoes and everybody is walking barefoot!”
Opinions don’t matter
All human beings have been built according to the same model: we are made first class by a first class Manufacturer to be yourself! We must eat, drink, sleep, make children, etc., everybody agrees on this, however for the rest, it is the Tower of Babel!
Everybody says, “in my opinion, it must be like this, according to me, it must be like that…”
While it is true that each person from their own viewpoint is right, everyone asserting their rights as truth creates a general free-for-all, and the world goes from fight to fight because each party wants to be right.
Is there a way out?
Of course there must be a way out, otherwise what would be the purpose of humanity, except to find the most efficient way to impose one’s own rights on the rest of the living universe? How can you get out of the fight and just be yourself?
The Allegory of the Cave
We have known one way out since at least the time of Plato, the great philosopher.
If you never heard Plato’s famous “Allegory of the Cave”, please listen!
The reason why so many humans still remain prisoners is that it takes courage, practice and persistence to become an experienced self-directed thinker. Actually, the drill never ends, because of the mountain of self-limiting beliefs each of us has accumulated over the years, so you won’t be yourself.
But it doesn’t matter for those who accept the challenge!
These everyday heroes know who they are and how to manifest their true nature while respecting the differences they notice in others. They learned to claim simply and quietly the right to be themselves, while respecting the right of others to do the same.
The World Needs You to Be Yourself
Although the Master Key Experience (MKE) training is the ideal place to learn and develop this kind of life skills, let me confess an important fact: it is not because I wrote what you just read that I am today an invincible light warrior who peacefully wins all his battles – including the toughest ones, those against the dark side of my ego
programmed with these famous and challenging limiting beliefs.
Willing to be perfect is not the point because you and me, and every human being on this planet, are already perfect inside.
The point is to be ready and willing to learn how to make our perfection shine every minute of our life, for oneself and for humanity as a whole.
That’s a big goal, but isn’t it worth it?
Should we succeed only for ourselves in that ambitious endeavor, that would still be one less person in charge for the rest of us! That being said, everybody knows we cannot change our life in one minute, but we can surely change its direction in less than 2 seconds and we can choose to do it every minute of our life!
Don’t lose your energy trying to be right, my friend, instead try hard to be yourself because the world desperately needs you as you are!
