I hope you find the courage to take off the mask and live as you truly are. Let go of the fears, doubts, worries and judgements from the outside world and what they make think. This is about you and your journey of truth, love, compassion and wisdom. ⁠

My teacher told me something a few years ago that I haven’t forgotten and remind people in my life of from time to time when they really need it. In fact, it has been one of the most profound lessons I’ve ever learned and I will pass it along to you today. ⁠

She said, “You must remember the hierarchy. First, their is The Higher. What you believe in. It is the most important part of the hierarchy. Then, there is The Higher and your relationship with it. Then, it’s The Higher, you, and then everyone else.”⁠

“The most important relationship you will ever have in your life is between you and what you believe in. At the end of the day, you have to make sure that’s solid. It doesn’t mean you don’t care about anyone else. It just means that you come to your decisions about life in a conversation between you and above.”⁠

The outside world shifts and changes at will. If you let it dictate your self worth and how much you love who you are, you will be in for one very bumpy ride. One day people like this thing, the next day they hate it and move onto the other thing.⁠

Don’t allow the health of your soul to be subjected to opinions, judgements and criticisms that are literally worth nothing.

You are here to learn who you truly are. Create a safe space of vulnerability with you and yourself as you’re learning. Remove all judgement. Silence the critic within. And when you have questions, do not seek outside of yourself. Turn within and seek the relationship you have with what you believe in. It will never abandon you. It will always guide you upon the path you are meant to travel. ⁠
