If we don’t change the direction we are headed, we will end up where we are going.

– Chinese proverb

Hence the importance of self awareness. We need to see ourself. Understand everything that is going on inside. Seeing is the key. This is kindness to self. After seeing what we choose to do next is up to us.

Most likely if we can see, really see then there is hope for a change for the better.

You cannot undo something that has happened. You cannot take back words that have been said. What you can do is not to repeat the vicious pattern of behaviour that gets us stuck in a rut. Break out. Break free Cultivate self mastery.

As long as we have self mastery then hope exists. Not all is lost.

One thought on “Chinese proverb

  1. From Alice In Wonderland:
    “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
    “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
    “I don’t much care where” said Alice.
    “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
    “So long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation.
    “Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”
