Every Heart Will Get What it Prays for Most

When I was around 14 years of age, my destiny came to me. It was inscribed on a bookmark, tucked inside a book, wrapped as my birthday gift, and shipped from India all the way to Canada by a childhood friend. It read,

“Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself.” By Richard Bach

I can still go back to the moment when I read those words in my dimly lit bedroom. I felt like I had fallen into a deep slumber for some years and this was an alarm waking me up. Something about those words felt so familiar, as if I had shipped them to myself in another lifetime.

After this, everyday, I started asking myself if I was being truly honest with myself. Every time I got lost, this one quote helped me find my way. It helped me grow in ways no other question could. And, because of this quote, I started collecting other quotes that rang true to me, like clues leading me back to myself.

So, it is because of this quote, I gained a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet someone like no other, the self.
