Individuality is a non-egotistic phenomenon; it is pure am-ness, there’s no “I” in it. Only the individual can rise to the peak of consciousness and awareness. The more you belong to the crowd, the more you adopt a personality that is dangerous to your spiritual growth. Society tries to make you a person, never an individual. A person is one who has a personality. A personality is a mask and society teaches you how to sit, how to stand, how to behave, how to act in certain situations. In every possible way, the society is preparing you so that you can fit into its mold. Personality is nothing but “I”; it is aggressive, violent, dominating, political. You are identified with it so much you think you are it but you are not it. Who you are, you are not aware.. Society has a pattern, a model on you. It contains all artificial things for you to make you to what is suitable to society. Every society creates its own kind of its personality because it has its own structure and you follow like it is your true nature. Empty yourself, empty all contents, all junk gathered all your life so you can be an individual because individuality is silent, loving, and compassionate. If you are emptying yourself you will become more and more blissful, you will make room available to your existence and it is joyful, blissful to celebrate your own core of being each moment. You will transform the smallest thing into celebration without analyzing it. Your existence is unique so do not destroy that gift from existence. Individuality gives you mastery; it makes you very liberated, grounded, rooted. It gives you substance that you are no longer living in dreams. It gives you solitude, clarity, transparency and vision. Your awareness will be heightened with the beauty of existence that you are more susceptible to all beauty around you, inside you.
Society always gives you an identity; it starts making you, manufacturing you to its own needs so it has all power to either create or destroy you. The whole purpose is how to make the individual exist for the society so you go on conforming yourselves for acceptance, validation and praises like an obedient child. All it’s vested interests are there: it’s culture, civilization, its way of living, its system of beliefs. And to make the individual function as a cog in the wheel that you are conditioned by education, scriptures, institutions the moment you are born. It kills the individuality, the freedom, the intelligence, and any possibility of revolt. Unlearning yourselves in order to return to the source, your own existence, your spiritual growth. The real danger from spiritual growth is from things which are dramatically opposite but look very alike. The real problem doesn’t arise from things which are apparently opposite, it arises with things which are not so apparently opposite, yet they are opposite. The real opposite of hate is not love, the real opposite of love is not hate; it is so apparent, who can be deceived by it? The real opposite of love is pseudo-love, love that pretends to be love, and it is not. The real opposite of compassion is not anger, it is the cultivated compassion, the kind of compassion that is not within you but it is only character, compassion that you have painted on your circumference. Always remember, the false is the enemy of the true. If your smile is true, your tear is true then they are your friends. They will help each other because they will both strengthen the truth of your being. If your tear is false, your smile is false then they will strengthen your falsity, your personality, your mask. You have to be watchful about that real opposite.
Society hates individuals. Society wants you to mix with the crowd, to fit with the crowd. Stop being yourself; just be a carbon copy of the ideal that the society has determined is how a person should be. It has not asked you how would you like to be; the ideals are determined by others. You simply are a victim. Every individual in this world is a victim of the crowd; therefore, an individual is bound to be a rebel. An individual is a nonconformist. He can only say yes to things which he feels are worth saying yes or no; it depends on his own feeling, his intuitive understanding, his own intelligence. He cannot be forced to yield. He can surrender out of love but he can’t be forced to surrender. He cannot be an obedient slave, not that he doesn’t know how to obey. When he feels for something, involved with something, he obeys totally in his inner light, in his deep inner consciousness. So drop all facets of those so-called personalities and do whichever appeals to your heart, your inner lights, your existence. Free yourselves, spread your wings and fly as high as you can reach your own freedom. ❤️
