Perhaps more importantly: Do you know who you are? How do you feel about yourself?
To some of you these questions may be a bit startling. As very few of us take the time to ever ask ourselves these questions. We tend to live in ignorance of ourselves and our needs. We get so caught up in our daily activities and forget the essential things to discover who we are and what we want to do with our life.
Before I proceed, I would like to read a paragraph from a book I read a few years ago while I was undergoing some turbulent challenges and it has added a great deal of value to my life.
The name of the book is The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.
“A beggar has been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by. “Spare some change?” mumbled the beggar. I have nothing to give you,” said the stranger. Then he asked:”What’s that you are sitting on?” “Nothing,” replied the beggar. “Just an old box I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember.” “Ever looked inside?” asked the stranger. “No,” said the beggar. “What’s the point? There’s nothing in there.” “Have a look inside,” insisted the stranger. The beggar managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold”.
I am that stranger who is telling you to look inside yourself in order to find valuable treasures anxious to be discovered in ‘Knowing Yourself’ (see services) your own true self and no one else.
WHO ARE YOU?
That is the question you should ask yourself first, rather than what is going to happen to your life.
You rarely hear this question being asked. You usually hear: What do you do? I have got some awakening news for you. What you do; does not identify you. It’s just a job. You can’t be yourself if you don’t know, understand, and accept yourself first.
Have you ever noticed how often we think about things outside of ourselves? We worry and wonder about what other people think about us. We think about other people and how they are doing. We tend to know more about other people than about ourselves. Not to say the least, I am sure the majority of you know more about celebrities than about yourself. Where they were born, how many films they made and how many awards they won. If they had a facelift, a boob job or a lips suction.
