“Those who want comfort in life have to seek conformity.
The result is false compromise and hypocrisy,
and a life without integrity becomes a patchwork.”

~ Swami Avyaktananda

I read this inspiration today in class and it seemed to resonate on many levels.

Enjoy connecting with what is true for you.

  9. With my experience, I say it’s true. I don’t see nothing bad/wrong about conformity, but being able to adapt to situations/lemons life gives u, is the best thing one can do for oneself. There are more than 4 reasons why – something I’m thinking of sharing to all through a blog post.


  10. Fabulous quote. Agreed! 🙏🏽💗
