YOU CAN NOT BE WHO YOU ARE BY BEING WHO YOU ARE NOT

BE YOURSELF.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres. We publish pieces written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and though they are reviewed for adherence to our guidelines, they are submitted in their final form to our open platform.

the way of nature is to hold space 
for all things to be true to who they are.
the mountain does not long to be the river
nor does the river crave to be the mountain.
in this space, what i am not falls away
and who i am remains.
i am finding this life-changing
for myself
and for those who enter my zoom room 
either for my 50 conversations with 50 strangers series
or for more intimate work we do together in private.
are you who you are not
we become so accustomed to being this way,
we forget who we are
but as long as you are who you are not, 
you cannot be who you are
if you want to experience the zoom room
contact me to be a guest on 
50 conversations with 50 strangers

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
