Finding True Individuality

Today much concern is shown by many over the loss of meaning and purpose in their lives. Everyone needs a sense of his true worth and the means of finding this, of escaping the monotony of this mechanistic age with its pressure to conform to its standards.

Conforming is costly because it prevents one from finding his true individuality. Yet, striving for individuality without spiritual inspiration is not satisfactory. Being different just for the sake of being different, drawing attention to oneself, desiring to be thought better than others, setting oneself apart from his fellowmen—all of these personal efforts are shallow and bring no lasting satisfaction. The cultivation of talents and abilities lacks its full reward if it is motivated by materialism.
