You arrived in this world as a pure soul. Untouched by beliefs, thoughts, judgements and expectations. You are as nature intended. You simply shine your light, the light that all children possess.
As you grow, you define yourself by the definitions of those who love and care for you. You start to develop layers, a personality if you will, that blocks you from radiating your true soul light out into the world.
These layers are masks that we start to believe are our true selves.
We define ourselves by the outside world and we disconnect from the truth of our hearts.
From there, we can never become all we are destined to be!
