The gang could not handle their one friend’s stench. No matter how they pleaded for Pigpen to take a bath, he remained in his own world, literally! This did not bother him. He remained true to himself and this was honest. When we are not our authentic selves we will not be happy. However, when we are true to ourselves we don’t allow others to define us. You set the terms and the parameters of your life, not people. Pigpen, who traveled with a cloud of dust, was true to himself and he expressed this by doing his own thing. We are not advocating not taking a shower, just be yourself.
