41 Dying to Be Me Truths That Will Touch Your Soul Like Nothing Else Will
“I believe that at the core, no one is truly bad—that evil is only a product of our fears, the same way my cancer was. From the magnificent perspective, even criminals are victims of their own limitations, fear, and pain. If they’d had true self-awareness to begin with, they never would have caused any harm.”~ Dying to Be Me
“Unconditional Love is our birthright, not judgment or condemnation, and there’s nothing we need to do to earn it. This is simply who and what we are.”~ Dying to Be Me
“When I’m being love, I don’t get drained, and I don’t need people to behave a certain way in order to feel cared for or to share my magnificence with them. They’re automatically getting my love as a result of me being my true self. And when I am nonjudgmental of myself, I feel that way toward others.”~ Dying to Be Me
“I’m loved unconditionally, for no other reason than simply because I exist.”~ Dying to Be Me
“When you can completely love your ego unconditionally and accept it as part of how you express in this life, you’ll no longer have a problem with it. It won’t impede your growth – on the contrary, it will be an asset.”~ Dying to Be Me
“I understood that at the core, our essence is made of pure love. We are pure love—every single one of us. How can we not be, if we come from the Whole and return to it? I knew that realizing this meant never being afraid of who we are. Therefore, being love and being our true self is one and the same thing!”~ Dying to Be Me
“Being love also means being aware of the importance of nurturing my own soul, taking care of my own needs, and not putting myself last all the time. This allows me to be true to myself at all times and to treat myself with total respect and kindness.
It also lets me view what may be interpreted as imperfections and mistakes with no judgment, seeing only opportunities to experience and to learn with unconditional love.”~ Dying to Be Me
“The entire universe is composed of unconditional love, and I’m an expression of this. Every atom, molecule, quark, and tetraquark, is made of love. I can be nothing else, because this is my essence and the nature of the entire universe. Even things that seem negative are all part of the infinite, unconditional spectrum of love.”~ Dying to Be Me
“Every aspect of you is perfect. There’s nothing to let go, nothing to forgive, nothing to attain. You already are everything you need to be. It can seem so complicated, but it’s not.”~ Dying to Be Me
“I understood that merely by being the love I truly am, I would heal both myself and others. I’d never understood this before, yet it seemed so obvious. If we’re all One, all facets of the same Whole, which is unconditional love, then of course who we are is love! I knew that was really the only purpose of life: to be our self, live our truth, and be the love that we are.”~ Dying to Be Me
“Selfishness comes from too little self-love, not too much, as we compensate for our lack. There’s no such thing as caring for the self too much, just as there’s no such thing as too much genuine affection for others. Our world suffers from too little self-love and too much judgment, insecurity, fear, and mistrust. If we all cared about ourselves more, most of these ills would disappear.”~ Dying to Be Me
“Your only work is to love yourself, value yourself, and embody this truth of self-worth and self-love so that you can be love in action. That is true service, to yourself and to those who surround you.”~ Dying to Be Me
“When you believe in yourself and are in touch with your own inner guidance system, the right guru, teacher, or healer will come to you at the right time, with the answer you need in that moment.”~ Dying to Be Me
“I can’t say this strongly enough, but our feelings about ourselves are actually the most important barometer for determining the condition of our lives!”~ Dying to Be Me
“Since the tapestry of all time has already been woven, everything I could ever want to happen in my life already exists in that infinite, nonphysical plane. My only task is to expand my earthly self enough to let it into this realm.
So if there’s something I desire, the idea isn’t to go out and get it, but to expand my own consciousness to allow universal energy to bring it into my reality here.”~ Dying to Be Me
“If you’re going to lose anyone’s support because you want to follow your own heart, then they aren’t the right person to support you through this journey! It’s so important that the people you have around you right now support you for who you are, not because you are doing what they say.”~ Dying to Be Me
“Everything that seemingly happens externally is occurring in order to trigger something within us, to expand us and take us back to who we truly are.”~ Dying to Be Me
“We are not these bodies; we’re neither our accomplishments nor our possessions—we are all one with the Source of all being, which is God.” Dying to Be Me
“I then understood that even if my physical body stopped, everything is still perfect in the greater tapestry of life, for we never truly die.”~ Dying to Be Me
“If you have trouble accessing your true feelings about a choice, try flipping a coin. Notice your gut reaction to the outcome of the toss – if you feel a positive response, go with that option. If your gut clenches, choose a different option.” ~ Dying to Be Me
Doing, on the other hand, is future focused, with the mind creating a series of tasks that take us from here to there in order to achieve a particular outcome, regardless of our current emotional state.”~ Dying to Be Me
“What I mean by being “centered” is experiencing being at the center of my cosmic web, being aware of my position. This is really the only place any of us ever are, and it’s important to feel our centrality at the core of it.”~ Dying to Be Me
“One of the things I believe is that we already are what we spend our lives trying to attain, but we just don’t realize it!”~ Dying to Be Me
“I just had to be myself, fearlessly! In that way, I’d be allowing myself to be an instrument of love. I understood that this was the best thing that any of us could possibly do or be, for both the planet and ourselves.”~ Dying to Be Me
“When we live completely from the mind over a period of time, we lose touch with the infinite self, and then we begin to feel lost. This happens when we are in doing mode all the time, rather than being. The latter means letting ourselves be who and what we are without judgment.
“When my inner dialogue is telling me that I’m safe, unconditionally loved, and accepted, I then radiate this energy outward and change my external world accordingly.”~ Dying to Be Me
“Cancer is just a word that creates fear. Forget about that word, and let’s just focus on balancing your body. All illnesses are just symptoms of imbalance. No illness can remain when your entire system is in balance.”~ Dying to Be Me
“We only expand at the rate we’re capable of handling at any given point, individually or collectively.”~ Dying to Be Me
“I believed that life happens to us and that I was a victim, so I was always reacting to my life circumstances instead of creating them. The games we have the ability to play in our minds amaze me.”~ Dying to Be Me
“Transform your world by transforming your internal state. Start by learning to let go of negative self judgment, and replace it with positive and loving thoughts about yourself. Be kind to yourself, and watch your external world change.”~ Dying to Be Me
“It was then that I understood that my body is only a reflection of my internal state. If my inner self were aware of its greatness and connection with All-that-is, my body would soon reflect that and heal rapidly.”~ Dying to Be Me
“Our life is our prayer. It’s our gift to this universe, and the memories we leave behind when we someday exit this world will be our legacy to our loved ones. We owe it to ourselves and to everyone around us to be happy and to spread that joy around.”~ Dying to Be Me
“We’re all co-creating this world and our lives within it through our emotions, thoughts, and actions.”~ Dying to Be Me
On Letting go
“I’m at my strongest when I’m able to let go, when I suspend my beliefs as well as disbeliefs, and leave myself open to all possibilities. That also seems to be when I’m able to experience the most internal clarity and synchronicities.
My sense is that the very act of needing certainty is a hindrance to experiencing greater levels of awareness. In contrast, the process of letting go and releasing all attachment to any belief or outcome is cathartic and healing.”~ Dying to Be Me
“Most of us are obsessed with worry about our future, but this is why many of us live joyless lives. However, when we can find joy in the present moment and every present moment from here on, we are creating a joyful future.”~ Dying to Be Me
“When I was willing to let go of what I wanted, I received what was truly mine. I’ve realized that the latter is always the greater gift.”~ Dying to Be Me
“I’ve learned that strongly held ideologies actually work against me. Needing to operate out of concrete beliefs limits my experiences because it keeps me within the realm of only what I know—and my knowledge is limited. And if I restrict myself to only what I’m able to conceive, I’m holding back my potential and what I allow into my life.
However, if I can accept that my understanding is incomplete, and if I’m able to be comfortable with uncertainty, this opens me up to the realm of infinite possibilities.”~ Dying to Be Me
“The dichotomy is that for true healing to occur, I must let go of the need to be healed and just enjoy and trust in the ride that is life.”~ Dying to Be Me
“Letting go of attachment to any way of believing or thinking has made me feel more expanded and almost transparent so that universal energy can just flow through me.”~ Dying to Be Me
“Words taken literally or held as ultimate truth can keep us stagnant and stuck, holding on to old ideologies. I now know that everything I need is already contained within me and is completely accessible if I allow myself to open up to what I sense is true for me and the same is true for you.“~ Dying to Be Me
“My sense is that the very act of needing certainty is a hindrance to experiencing greater levels of awareness. In contrast, the process of letting go and releasing all attachment to any belief or outcome is cathartic and healing.”~ Dying to Be Me
