Imitate No One

It is important we find our own voice. So much of our life is spent parroting others. Thoughts, dreams, consciousness. In order to be truly free, we must break away. How many truly wise people do you know? Get out of the rut that keeps us traveling down a path of imitation and bondage. We listen to the music of others and march in a parade we would rather not be in. Finding our own voice requires deep reflection and having the courage to see ourselves for ourselves and make our own decisions. We can use the wisdom of others to guide us, but ultimately we must chart our own course. Tao imitates no one, neither should we.
