A New Perspective
So now that we’ve established a new practise of self observation and meditation we begin to see ourselves as we really are and we begin to see the world as it really is.
We begin to stop hiding the truth about things from ourselves. And sometimes this is painful and we realize we have been avoiding seeing our truths because we know it will be awkward, uncomfortable or downright excruciating to admit these things to ourselves.
As we touch something within that is tender we may flinch, draw back or recede and go back into hiding.
On a Personal Note
As I write these entries each day I encounter my own issues around self doubt and I am aware that this will be a life long adventure in courage. I could have written that as a life long “struggle to overcome” but I prefer the other perspective. It motivates me to sally forth and see what’s around the next bend. It puts Life in my step.
We will see what we refer to as our “stuff”. It is part of the process to becoming more and more free for as we encounter these sore spots within we get a deeper understanding of how we hold ourselves back from Life, how we keep hurting ourselves. We begin to develop an appreciation for our injured selves and initiate steps of loving care to heal within.
As we heal we begin to transform and as we transform we grow and move out into and engage in our world with greater enthusiasm and freedom.
