    They mean that you shouldn't misrepresent yourself by trying to play to the crowd instead of being genuine. You'll be all fake an awkward. It's simpler to do what comes naturally.
    Im not sure, ive never been one to play to a crowd myself. Hmm so it seems the term really doesn't mean anything, since everyone has a different definition of it.

    As for naturally....ive not got a fucking clue what that means. For me being in a constant state of worry, pressure and overt self-consciousness IS natural.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    You're always yourself; the statement really means "relax and speak your mind"

    As for me, be yourself means be natural and original all around.
