Perhaps the greatest gift you could ever give to the world is the gift of your authentic self. When you give of your true, unfiltered nature, you pierce the barrier that separates us – and through this piercing, energy begins to flow freely and unchanged. Your soul leaks out into your work, where it then tantalizes other souls, calling them to do the same. When you give of your true self, the spirit within, the light that dims for no one, the gifts that are yours alone, you give to the world your genuine, natural beauty – the kind of raw, uncompromising beauty that can only be found wrapped up in imperfections and vulnerabilities. Only with this kind of complete openness can pure, undiluted, unrestricted energy be exchanged. It is where love and creativity are born; it is the place of infinite possibilities and uncompromising passion. What gift could ever be more precious than that?
