It's a wonderful life, but:
You just need to systematically and frequently, vigilantly, cleanse your head of all the toxicity society has fed you since before you could talk. And in the same process cleanse your body. Only in this way, may you glimpse your soul.
I see it as if, everyone is wearing a mask, and believes it is their own face. But when you identify that what you thought was your face, is a mask, you realize everyone else's "face" is also a mask.
This gives you great power, because you can see what they think they are hiding, or what they maybe do not even believe is there. And on the other hand, you completely disbelieve the fake "self" they present to you, and in most cases, "believe" to be their true self.
What this shows, is that to lead others, does not take manipulation, but rather self-mastery and self-purifying. This means you will be a rock, while others will be mud, int he case of your enemies, or a beautiful clear stream int he case of those you love. Simply through your internal force, you will shape them.
"I see your deeds, that you are neither hot nor cold, but lukewarm. How I wish you were hot or cold for me: but because you are lukewarm, I will vomit you from my mouth."
