“No shepherd, and one herd! Everyone wants the same, everyone is the same: whoever feels different goes willingly into the madhouse.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Everyone is unique, without exception. Sadly, most of us don’t realize this fact – we don’t accept ourselves for who we are and wish we were different. Naturally, this is causing enormous sadness and discomfort to us, because, how can we be happy and at ease, unless we accept and love ourselves?

In the culture that we live, we have learned that we are not enough as we are. Since we were little children, we have been taught that we need to be a certain way in order to be accepted by the society. Parents, teachers, priests, and so on, wanted us to conform to society’s standards, or else we were warned that we would be left alone – abandoned. Out of fear, most of us chose to conform.

Now, although we have been accepted by the society, deep down we feel empty and insecure. We feel lonely and disconnected. We feel a heavy burden deep within us that doesn’t allow us to act free and spontaneously. We have suppressed our true self so much that we don’t anymore recognize who we are. We have lost touch with our heart and spirit.
