“In the process of letting go you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself.” ~ Deepak Chopra

Every single day we lose ourselves in the many roles we play, in the many things we do, and in the many labels we identify ourselves with. And by trying to cling to everything and everyone, and by seeking to take our value and sense of worth from outside ourselves, we slowly but surely drift away.

Life was given to us as a gift – to enjoy and appreciate, to love and to live. And by finding our way back to ourselves, back to who life created us to be, we will be able to enjoy, appreciate and live our lives to the fullest.

Here’s How to Find Your Way Back to Yourself:

1. Let go of the need to please everyone around you.

One of the most important things in finding your way back to yourself is letting go of this unhealthy need to please everyone around you. You have to understand that you weren’t born to be what the people in your life want you to be. You were born to be Yourself. And by letting go of the need to please everyone, and by finding the courage to walk your own path, you will find your way back to yourself. 

2. Let go of the need to identify yourself with what you do.

By identifying yourself with what you do – your career, your title, how much money you make, etc., you damage who you truly are at the core level, and you harm your beautiful heart and loving Soul. If you’re serious about finding your way back to yourself, and if you want to live your life in alignment with your life’s purpose, you need to let go. And you need to start perceiving yourself as a human BEing instead of a human DOing. Because just like Wayne Dyer said, “You aren’t what you do. If you are what you do, then when you don’t…you aren’t.”

3. Let go of the identification with your unhealthy thoughts.

The mind will fabricate all kinds of unhealthy stories about who you are, what you can or cannot do, and about how you will never find your way back to yourself. And even though all these toxic and negative thoughts will seem very real and true to you, you have to learn to look beyond them.

“Don’t believe everything you think. Thoughts are just that – thoughts.” ~ Allan Lokos

4. Let go of those people who no longer need, or want, to be in your life.

Desperately clinging to people who no longer need, or want, to be in your life can be a source of great suffering. And it can keep you from experiencing your own beauty and perfection. But by letting go, by allowing those you love to walk their own path and to live the life they were intended to live, you will give yourself permission to find your way back home.

“Love liberates. It doesn’t just hold—that’s ego. Love liberates. It doesn’t bind. Love says, ‘I love you. I love you if you’re in China. I love you if you’re across town. I love you if you’re in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you. I’d like to have your arms around me. I’d like to hear your voice in my ear. But that’s not possible now, so I love you. Go.’” ~ Dr. Maya Angelou

    Number one:
    Dreaming of the girl in the picture.

    She is magnificent.

    Her eye lashes go all the way
    across the universe
    and tickles God’s very
    beauty glands.

    She leans like a spirited gazelle,
    taking in all the air of hope
    so I can smell that warm wind of
    distant meadows. She poses,
    but not for the pose,
    she really pauses.

    Maybe I’m in love with the photographer…

    8 things you should let go to find your way back to yourself

    1: Any belief in authorities, who say they know for sure about you or the world, or have a sure right to make decisions for you.

    Socrates was right: the onlye thing I know for sure is:
    I know nothing for sure.

    This is because we are in the middle of the world, not out side looking in. And because all we know is a result of what our senses told us, and we can certainly not be sure that our sense tell us all – even with mathematical calculations, philosophy and science etc.

    2: Any cultural demand that does not feel right in the company of healthy, happy children. Aks some kids, who are not afraid to speak their mind because of religious og political tyranny, what they think about cutting into people, or forbidding music or any other human activity known all over the globe.

    3: Any ambition to get back at people around you, people you have known or people you think you might meet. You and they most certainly mistook what ever you said, BECAUSE of the complications of history and language and misinformation.

    Getting back at people is like you’re a fish that’s been hooked, and in stead of shaking the hook, you try and eat up the line.

    4: Any fixed picture of yourself as a person with a number of problems.

    You may have a cold, but it doesn’t NECCESARILY mean that you are cold, weak or enherited hell (I know we all did, for different reasons).

    It could be that you are in a place that is not good or eating the shit they feed you.

    5: All the fixed ideas about people and how they look.

    Look in their eyes, see the mood and try and understand.

    6: All the fixed ideas about people being good or evil.

    Put me in a uniform and tell me goats must be shot, because you.ve read some book, I still can’t judge you, ’cause I don’t really know why and how you went ridiculously crazy.

    7: Read up on all kinds of science, with no prejudice about your ability to understand (just take it as slowly as it takes).

    8: “Don’t just do something, sit there!” (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh)

    Why is there a picture of a girl in her underwear leaning on a barbed-wire fence? Kind of sexist.
