|The most difficult of all tasks in life is the journey inward; to explore, understand and heal our wounded selves. Many are not willing to take this journey as it seems so much easier to blame their past circumstances, family environment, mates, kids, parents, school, government, the neighbor, economic situation, etc. (the list goes on and on).
This journey requires complete, and I reiterate complete - HONESTY - with yourself, while being objective and taking responsibility for your past, present and future choices. It can be most frightening and unsettling; as the norm is to stay in the comfort zone of familiarity. As you begin your journey inward and disturb those emotional responses, behavioral patterns and mental attitudes, there may be a tendency to run back to that comfort zone. If this happens, you must stop and ask yourself, "Was I really happy in that comfort zone?". Since you are being completely honest with yourself, the answer will be no. If it was yes, then you wouldn't be wanting or needing to take this inward journey in the first place. Do know that continuing your journey, with focus and determination, will bring very pleasurable results? I have listed a few to give you a glimpse of "A Circle of Light" that you will be able to find within yourself.
- being able to be ALL that you are capable of being;
- negative perceptions altered forever, while maintaining the positive ones;
- never being held back by your past again;
- a new found sense of freedom;
- a higher self-esteem, and
- peace of mind.
