What does that mean? Being you? Have you ever been thinking about how you would describe being you? The authentic and true you, where you do not transform into something else or adjust to what others think you should be.
What do you believe in, what are your inner dreams? Do you have some behaviours, words, sayings or other traits that is characteristic for being you? Things that you do when being a leader or a colleague, a family member, a mother or father, a sister or brother, a friend. And things that you think is vital for being you, in these different roles.
It can be challenging to try to find what is unique in you, what trait and personality and specifics that only you possess. That does not exist within anyone else in the world. It is your unique expression, your own, personal DNA.
You can always listen in and reflect on your own behaviour. For instance, documenting in a journal on a day-to-day basis, to see the patterns. It is also helpful to ask someone who knows you well, what they see. Then keep in mind that this is a very sensitive question. So be mindful when asking and receiving this kind of insights.
In yoga, this is one of the five Yamas, called Satya, or truthfulness. Being true to yourself and to others. Truthfulness is also very linked to the first Yama, Ahimsa, or non-violence. To remind you that to be true and speak your truth should not involve harming others in any way.
Finding out about the ‘true you’ will give you a lot of understanding about yourself and this will help to guide your way forward. It will give your mind more peace and you will grow as a person.
Wish you the best of luck. Take care. Namaste.
