Individuality (Individualitas)

~ Jan Arden
“Feet on ground
heart in hand
facing forward
be yourself.”

Kaki berpijak di tanah,
Hati berada di tangan,
Wajah menghadap ke muka,
Jadilah diri sendiri.

~ Melody Beattie
“Going home means getting comfortable being who you are and who your soul really wants to be. There is no strain with that. The strain and tension come when we’re not being who our soul wants to be and we’re someplace where our soul doesn’t feel at home.”

Pulang berarti menjadi senang menjadi diri sendiri dan ingin seperti apa jiwa anda sebenarnya. Tidak ada masalah berkaitan dengan itu semua. Masalah dan beban datang ketika kita tidak bisa menjadi seperti yang diinginkan oleh jiwa kita dan jiwa kita berada di mana-mana bukannya di rumah.

~ Henri Bergson
“To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.”

Eksistensi itu ditujukan untuk perubahan, perubahan ditujukan untuk kedewasaan, dan kedewasaan ditujukan untuk menciptakan diri sendiri secara terus menerus.

“The easiest thing in the world to be is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don’t let them put you in that position.” ~ Leo Buscaglia

“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.” ~ Joseph Campbell

“to be nobody-but-yourself – in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else – means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.” ~ e.e. cummings

“Who you really are, your True Nature, is no more tied to the kind of person you’ve been than the wind is tied to the skies through which it moves. Your past is just that, the past, a place within your psyche with no more reality to it than a picture of a castle on a postcard is made from stone. You have a destination far beyond where you find yourself standing today.” ~ Guy Finley

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is a hard business. If you try it, you’ll be lonely often, and sometimes frigthened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.” ~ Arthur Gordon

“We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own or to other peoples’ models, learn to be ourselves, and allow our natural channel to open. ~ Shakti Gawain

“There is a vitality, a life-force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action. And because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium, and be lost. The world will not have it. ~ Martha Graham

“… our concern must be to live while we’re alive — to release our inner selves from the spiritual death that comes with living behind a facade designed to conform to external definitions of who and what we are.” ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences. ~ Audre Lorde

“At the center of your being you have the answer. You know who you are and you know what you want.” ~ Lao-tzu

“Find your true path. It’s so easy to become someone we don’t want to be, without even realizing it’s happening. We are created by the choices we make every day. And if we take action in order to please some authority figure, we’ll suddenly wake up down the road and say, ‘This isn’t me. I never wanted to be this person.'”
~ Bernie Siegel, MD

“Nature never repeats herself, and the possibilities of one human soul will never be found in another.” ~ Elizabeth Cady Stanton
