Why should I connect to my true self?
When your mind connects or associates more to the outside world, it makes you a follower. While connecting to your own True Self will make you a leader.
It is in the basic human nature to love one’s own self unconditionally. Only those can truly know the meaning of love who really feel their love towards their own True self. But the world around has taught us to be connected to our surroundings like situations, family, community, religion, etc. What is the point in being connected to everything around, but not with your own True Self, which is the ultimate Supreme GOD.
