Being authentic to self

“All the knowledge I possess everyone else can acquire, but my heart is all my own.”
~Johann von Goethe, The Sorrows of Young Werther, 1774

Humility is natural when we’re true to ourselves. Then there is no desire for one-upmanship. This prayer stands for humility and self-awareness, which in turns stems from being true to ourselves. Being true to ourselves means acknowledging, and acting upon, our deepest desires, our most vivid and persistent dreams, our passion and our purpose. Knowing the self is the greatest knowledge…all else is superficial and irrelevant.
