I burned my effigy (image / representation) in Minecraft tonight to show something to some people and I’ll share it here as well on the INFP group.
You are more than what you show to the world. Your image, the role you play, your social status, even how you see yourself – ESPECIALLY how you see yourself – *ISN’T* you.
The real you is something more. You can love yourself while also knowing the difference between the you that other see, and the you you see in the mirror, and even the you you think yourself to be… from the REAL you, which goes beyond any of that. The closer you come to the REAL you, the more you see how you are never alone. All is with you and with you is all. This isn’t merely fluff; it’s quite literally true. We’re more than outside looking in. We’re inside looking out at that which comes inside while looking at ourselves looking at ourselves not looking – and aware of it – and our place in the Universe *is* the Universe in its entirety, especially those things we do not see or control but somehow, it’s all there, and we’re involved, even if we sometimes feel apart. You’re not apart from it. You *are* it.
