Don’t be yourself.
Who are you anyway?
A fabric of personality biases?
Your body’s twitching sensations?
Your opinion of someone else’s opinion of you?
Your confidence that breath is the key to the universe?
You are nothing. So don’t be yourself.
And don’t fool yourself. You are a shell at best. Or a vessel.
“Shape clay into a vessel; it is the space within that makes it useful,” said Lao Tzu.
“Let the True Will exert its force through your eternal vacantness,” say I.
Be whoever you need to be to do what you truly want to do.
