Better To Be Nobody Than Somebody

It's always funny when the 1% claims that the 99% envies their wealth and power. Maybe a decade ago, I could have embraced that notion as I was obsessed nearly all my life with somebodyness.

Now, after that exercise in futility, I could give a shit less.

What's wealth and power when your soul is buried by ego? Embrace loss and poverty in your life, as Ghandi did, because the more opulence you have, the less of yourself you know. Christ knew himself, and got crucified trying to show us how to do that. I thank Jesus, the great avatar, for showing me the lonely, often bleak path to true peace, the release from ego. 

You find your true self, which is the Soul, through selflessness. It is much harder to find it when you're selfish

Short version: embrace your anonymity, your nobodyness...as in that quiet, it's easy to find who you really are, and not what people label you.

Be cool; be nobody's fool; and don't dismiss the bliss.
