Let your light shine from within,
no matter who or what tries to dull it.
Let your light shine so brightly
that others can see their way out of the dark.
The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are.
You trade your reality for a role.
You trade in your sense for an act.
You give up your ability to feel,
and in exchange, put on a mask.
There can’t be any large-scale revolution
until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level.
It’s got to happen inside first.
When you are in deep meditation,
you feel a great serenity, a joy that is unknown to you,
a watchfulness that is a new guest.
Soon this watchfulness will become the host.
The day the watchfulness becomes the host,
it remains twenty-four hours with you.
And out of this watchfulness, whatever you do has a wisdom in it.
Whatever you do shows a clarity, a purity, a spontaneity, a grace.
