Have you thought about this? We, each and every one of us, plays a role in our daily lives; and every day we slip into different parts of the play as actors do: Mother/father to our children, wife/ husband to our spouse, and, when we visit the doctor, we become the patient. When we go to school, attend classes, or participate in seminars, we become students. Going to work we become a mechanic, nurse, or firefighter. You might play the role of a hero, an intellectual, artist, or a victim.
We act differently in each capacity. The only thing that stays the same is our Soul, our true essence. Our thoughts change constantly, our beliefs vary and our convictions are sometimes in line with what other people think, and not what we should have researched on our own. We are so busy playing the role that we unfortunately neglect the Soul.
Your true mental business is to be busy with the good. Let go of the acting part. Be who you are. You can be a mother without acting like one. You can be a husband without pretending to be the kind of husband you think you are supposed to be. You can be an artist by expressing yourself through your art, but you don’t have to play the role that you think is expected of you. Can you shed the role of victim by taking on the responsibility of victor? Let me know what you think!
