How self aware am I?

Self awareness will lead me to answer the question.  Who am I?

The problem is that we do not know ourself very well. We do not bother to look and find out.We do not think it is necessary. There are things inside that we rather not face. Hurts, obsessions, compulsions, fears and desires. Attachments of all kinds. It is a long list. There is a lot of baggage.

There is a feeling of unsatisfactoriness in all of us. Nothing we do is ever enough. Why?

Only I know what is inside nobody else. So the best person to fix things is myself because I created and built it. Not my therapist.

We need to deal with ourself sooner or later. Face what we need to face. Running away or numbing it with happy pills will not make it go away. It may make things worse. Be honest. Be kind to self. Face the problems and do the necessary. We hold the key. The solution. But we have hidden the key. Now we need to find the key.

We need to be brave and be open minded because the key may be right in front of us.

  1. The best book I’ve read about awareness is Everyday Zen by Charlotte Beck. But no matter how many books we read we have to figure it out for ourselves. Yes, the key is always right in front of us we just have to grab it.

    1. Trust in yourself and your ability to fix things. How are you going to live with yourself if you do not face things and fix things once and for all?
