The more effort we put in the more we will get out of life.
If we practise at being angry then we will become angry. If we find fault then there are many faults to find.
If we practise at being happy, then we will be happy. If we live life from one experience to another then that is what we will get.
For me I like to practise self mastery. I want to deeply understand myself and life as it is. Not as I think it is but as it actually is. What is. Is. There are many things that are as it is. So there are many things to discover.
I try to understand my emotions. I also try to understand my mindset and my personality. I want to observe my mind, how it works. I try to be conscious of my unconscious habits and behavours and all my triggers. I need to look at all my defaults. The attitude that I often deploy. The pre programmed little sub routines that is me. My auto pilot. Things that I do without much thought.
The sum of everything that I am reveals a lot about where I am headed in my life. Life is a process. Things do not just happen suddenly. Not much is left to chance. We are all where we are ment to be.
There is much to discover about myself. I just need to take time out to look. It is well worth the effort.
This life we live. We need to live it responsibly. We need to live it masterfully. This is the mark of self respect and kindness to self.
