Our identity is a beautiful tapestry made up of the threads of our experiences, convictions, and values. Because of the unique characteristics that define us, we are who we are. We go on a road of self-acceptance and self-discovery when we look into the essence of who we are.

Each component of who we are adds depth and complexity to the image we present. It's not about fitting into preset categories or adhering to established conventions. Instead, it's about appreciating our individuality and highlighting our skills and uniqueness.

Let's keep in mind that our identity is a work of art that is always changing as we think about it. As we develop and learn, we have the ability to mold and redefine it. We may live truly and shine our true light into the world by embracing our actual selves and the distinctive features that make us different. So let's embrace the complexity of our identity and let it grow with love and self-assurance.

In this exercise, you're going to undress yourself. Not literally, All your clothes can stay right where they are. But we're going to peel off some layers nonetheless. Let's imagine you're standing in a quiet bedroom, all by yourself. It's comfortable in here. There's a big dresser and a mirror. Now think of the things you own, your money, your phone, your living space, maybe your car. Imagine you're wearing all of them on your body like clothes. Take those things off, fold them up neatly, and tuck them into one of the dresser drawers. Now in the mirror, you see your face, your body, the physical part of you that's visible to the world, that defines you in their eyes and often in yours. Take your physical appearance off, fold it up, and put it in the dresser. Underneath that layer is your to-do list. All your obligations, the things you need to accomplish, the things you can accomplish, the things you think you should accomplish, take them off and put them away. And finally, your reputation, what people think of you, what you hope they think of you, all their expectations and assumptions about you, whether right or wrong, your relative status, how you compare with others. Take it all off and put it in the biggest drawer. You are undressed, without your things, your body, your deeds, and your reputation. What's left? It's you. Your deepest self. Listen to yourself, to your spiritual center, and tell yourself what you hear.
