"To know yourself, you must sacrifice the illusion that you already do." -Vironika Tugaleva
When I think about the question of why it is so important for us to know ourselves fully, our own sensations, thoughts, beliefs, and other mental states, I am taken back to a time in my life when I really knew nothing about any of that. Oh, I knew what I liked to eat, wear, do for fun and kinda knew what I wanted to do with my life. But that other stuff – not a clue. I was too busy “living” my life to stop and examine what that life was all about. There will always be distractions to pull us away from doing the important reflection and deeper dive into the true being that resides inside the human bodysuit. Many times in my own life, I have waited until something traumatic happened to take that deep dive.
Angels, self-awareness and discovering who we truly are leads to better and more-informed decisions in life. Why do we struggle with doing the necessary work to reach that point in our lives?
Dear Ones, one of your great philosophers, Socrates, said “to know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.” Procrastination in this area is truly one of the most harmful things you can do. Make a commitment every day to learn something new about yourself. We hear that resistance! We hear you saying “but Angels, I know myself so well that there may not be something new every day.” It is indeed in that mindset that you become foolish. The wise man understands that life is always shifting and changing. As you make those shifts, so too do your senses, mental state, thoughts and beliefs. If you think they do not change constantly, you have your head buried in the sand and are unteachable. It really is up to you to be open enough to accept possibilities and fresh ideas while you go on a journey of discovery of you. As you start to get to know yourself you will find your life changing. You will start to trust and believe in yourself and eventually even grow to love yourself unconditionally.
Dear Angels, thank you for this wisdom. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to discover one new thing about myself.
