“What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.” – Maslow
How self-aware are you? Do you notice the patterns of thoughts and behaviors that may not be serving you anymore? What do you do in your everyday life to clarify this awareness of yourself? If you look and listen really honestly within yourself, you may begin to discover various thoughts, ideas, assumptions, expectations, beliefs, etc., that no longer serve you, and are yet the very things that hold you back and drag you around like a dog on a leash. These unquestioned thoughts, beliefs, and assumptions etc., can (and do) unknowingly pull you around and run your decisions, behaviors, and your state of happiness. These unquestioned thoughts, beliefs, and assumptions are the very veils that distort and cloud your clear perception and muddy your vision. Isn’t it time to really look at the thoughts and stories that bring confusion, stress, fear, and anxiety, that run your life? Through questioning, inquiry, and silence, you’ll discover the opportunity to uncover clarity, freedom, and a deep sense of who you really are.
