˜ " Alli: I think my dream, for myself, is to always be doing work that lights me up and Rauthenticity is doing that for me right now. I think my dream for Rau is to create this really solid community of creative people that are working together, feeding off of each other's creativity and doing awesome things for the world while having this platform to come together and celebrate each other.
Nicole: I would say my dream for myself is also tied into Rau. I want to live a life very full of love and through that, once I'm dead, for there to be something that I've created in this world that continues to produce and give love long after I have left it.
Nicole: We talk about it a lot and people ask us, 'Why Rau? What are you doing it for?' I can't hope to transform other people. I can't say I'm going to change a bunch of lives because the only person who is within my power is myself. On this planet I can only transform me. That's the only person I can really hope to influence and if other people are impacted along the way then that is freaking awesome.
Alli: The truth of it is that we are all connected so by transforming yourself you will resonate with other people. It can't go the other way around because if your intention is to just transform others, then you're forgetting the most important part, which is yourself because that's all you have control over and that's who you know best.
Nicole: That comes back to love too because you can't love others without loving yourself first because you haven't enacted love in 'here' so you can't really give it yet.
It's all full circle." ˜
