Living with vibrancy and purpose is not only possible, but it is exactly the way we are meant to experience life! Awakening happens when we begin to tune into the truth of what is going on, emotionally, in our lives. To others we may appear to have all kinds of success or failure; but it is only through self-inquiry that our true well-being is measured.
Consider the following questions:
Do you feel alive?
Do you love passionately?
What emotion is most predominant today? Happy? Sad? Lonely? Confused? Tired? Afraid? Numb?
With honest assessment, you know exactly where you stand in response to the aforementioned questions. Your answers serve as a guide to moving forward. If you generally feel lost, numb, sad, or as if something is wrong or missing in your life; then it is time to make changes. You may get results from doing so in small ways, but sometimes a more radical shift is necessary. On the other hand, if you usually feel good and have true excitement about life, then you are on the right path. It remains important, however, to have full awareness of how to stay on track.
The next few posts will focus on your own personal awakening. To participate you just need a few minutes a day, and commitment to look closely at your life.
