This crazy, deep-seated idea that there is a “best version” of yourself out there, somewhere, never here, never now, and no matter how much you try, you just can’t seem to reach it?
First of all, the only reason one should even embark on such a quest is to convince themselves that it truly is an impossible mission.
As humans, we are raised to feed on competition, we base our entire existence on duality, constantly defining the world and ourselves as a blend of contrasts.
Ironically, though, the balance we so long for is never the middle of two extremes, but an idea that transcends both.
GOOD AGAINST EVIL,
WORK VERSUS LIFE,
MIND OVER MATTER
always two sides of the same coin.
The outcome depends on who flips it and who places the bet.
But what if the coin never hits the ground? What if, just like electrons orbiting an atomic nucleus, being everywhere and nowhere at the same time, the coin just keeps on spinning? If there are no heads and no tails, it means you’ve already arrived, while still moving towards the end.
So it’s not that you are never good enough to achieve you best self. On the contrary.You are never done achieving it, over and over again. Take a deep breath and let that fantasy go, as you have been unknowingly living it your entire life.
As Marianne Williamson said:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”
THE BEST YOU IS YOUR TRUE YOU.
HERE. NOW. ALWAYS.
DARE TO LIVE IT EVERY SINGLE DAY.
