Who are you when you are with friends and family? And who are you when you are alone? Are you different or the same what-you-see-is-what-you-get being? If you put on a happy face always, when inside you are feeling quite the opposite, examine that. Your feelings and behaviors are all the result of the stories you tell yourself. If you can create different scenarios, then perhaps it is time to tap into the innate qualities of the soul where this is no story. There is no need to fake-it-till-you-make-it. Simply realize you are the love and peace you seek, even if buried under layers of stories, and BE That.
