Importance of being yourself.

Ask a flower in the field: ‘Do you feel useful?
After all, you do nothing but produce the same flowers over and over?’
And the flower will answer:
‘I am beautiful, and beauty is my reason for living.’


Ask the river: ‘Do you feel useful?,
given that all you do is to keep flowing in the same direction?’
And the river will answer: ‘I’m not trying to be useful,
I’m trying to be a river.’

Don’t try to be useful.
Try to be yourself: that is enough, and that makes all the difference.
Walk neither faster nor slower than your own soul.
Because it is your soul that will teach you the usefulness of each step you take.

Sometimes taking part in a great battle
But sometimes you can do that simply by smiling,
for no reason,
at someone you happen to pass in the street.
Without intending to,
you might have saved the life of a complete stranger,
who also thought he was useless and might have been ready to kill himself,
until a smile gave him new hope and confidence.
