THE DAILY GURU
"Learn To Be Aware"
"You can live a lifetime and, at the end of it, know more about other people than you know about yourself."
-- Beryl Markham
Who am I? To answer this, we must first learn to become more aware of ourselves. To be aware, we must STOP and PAY ATTENTION! We need to STOP and objectively watch ourselves in action.
We live most of our lives by habit. These habits keep us stuck in patterns that limit our experience of life. Once we detect a pattern we were previously unconscious of, we can choose differently, if we want. With awareness comes choice and with choice, we gain freedom.
"To be authentic is literally to be your own author …, to discover your own native energies and desires, and then to find your own way of acting on them."
-- Warren G. Bennis
"Self-knowledge is the great power by which we comprehend and control our lives."
-- Vernon Howard
