Click here to listen to today’s Daily Power Prayer for Authenticity!:
In practicing nonviolence I learn to put aside the ways of behaving that other people have taught me and I developed a willingness to stand in my uniqueness and my authenticity. I no longer invest my energy into taking offense at things that have nothing to do with me. I discover who I really am and begin to live and act from that inner knowing of my own uniqueness. One thing I truly have in common with everyone on the planet is that no two of us are alike. We can be unique, without being “special.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson advised us, “Insist on yourself; never imitate. Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life’s cultivation; but of the adopted talent of another you have only an extemporaneous half possession. That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him … Where is the master who could have taught Shakespeare?”
Today, I recognize my uniqueness. I notice my behavior, my reactions and actions and ask myself if they come from my authentic self? The more I express who I truly am, the more vibrant the whole world will be. AND, most amazingly, it leads me to an awareness of the fact that, in truth, I am the same as every other human being having a spiritual experience. I am remembering my Divinity and the Divinity of all life. I practice loving by appreciating my uniqueness and the uniqueness of everyone I meet. Every day I move the world in the direction of love through my nonviolent choices and actions.
I’m unique, just like everyone else!
