Recognition is an unpredictable stuff. Some people can spend a lot of time with you but they still don’t recognise your true self. What they see is a veil that covers you. And because they don’t know that the veil is not part of you, they will say “the veil makes you perfect so keep wearing it”. It’s not their fault, and not yours either because we don’t know we are wearing a veil.
The moment you take off the veil, you become your True Self and suddenly these people don’t know who you are. They cannot recognise you because all these while they see you through a veil. But some people could recognise you from far away even they don’t know you that much.
That’s why I feel recognition of a True Self is unpredictable because we don’t know who will notice it and who don’t. And the moment you take off your veil, your life will change, your circle of people will change, your priority will transform and your purposes will be recognised.
