“Be yourself. No one can say you’re doing it wrong.” Sage advice from Peanuts’ pooch, Snoopy.
We can find ourselves getting hung up in that “yourself” part, though, when we don’t know who we are. Then if someone tells us we’re “doing it wrong,” we think they’re right.
Our self – our authentic Self – is an individuation of the creativity of the Universe; everything the Universe is, we are.
We are creative, and expanding, and brilliant and beautiful and endless. All that creativity, expansiveness, brilliance, beauty and endlessness manifest in our daily living as our thoughts, words and behavior. They are in the decisions we make and the gifts we share as we choose relationships, work and pass-times. If we are sharing the truth of who we are, making choices based in our authenticity, we create an atmosphere where others can do the same. And all that truth adds up to an environment of love, forgiveness, compassion and sharing. And, as Snoopy reminds us, no one can do that wrong.
We all bring gifts to the party. Then we all open them up – and we all play.
