On Being

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don`t matter, and those who matter don`t mind.”

–Dr. Seuss, the children`s writer

“Don`t ask what the world needs; don`t ask what others think you should be doing with your life. Instead, ask yourself what makes you come alive–because, more than anything else, what the world truly needs are men and women who have come alive. What the world needs is the natural sincerity of people living their passion in a way that makes other people`s lives better. This is what being authentic looks like…and this, in my humble opinion, is what Lao-tzu ,meant when he called this second cardinal virtue of natural sincerity something that shows up as “honesty and a determination to be faithful to one`s truest, most authentic self.”

–Dr. Wayne Dyer, “The Shift,” p. 95
