The freedom to choose what we want, to see what isn’t working for us and to decide what is right for us.
We also have the freedom to choose what isn’t working for us.
We are the ones who choose to be afraid, to get stressed, to be angry, to resent, to blame.
It is all the fruit of our creation, our choice.
It’s a hard thing to grasp.
When a person ‘wakes up’ to this, he is in a tremendous reaction to his life, to his own mind; ”how could I have chosen this path for so many years?’
A path of guilt, blame, justification, defense, proof, competition, being the victim?
"How did I do it to myself? Why? What do I get from it? What’s the use of it?”
When a person awakens to this simple realization, he begins to experience time and time again that he is not getting any benefit out of it, and he becomes aware of the mechanism as it is, which will naturally generate change, because there is no more covering, everything is clear.
As long as person is not fully aware of his own mind mechanism, which is expressed through thoughts, feelings and behaviour (like habits), aware of the cause and effect of things (implications), and doesn’t start to ask essential life questions such as why I do what I do and what is the purpose of it… there can be no change.
Even if change does seem to happen, but it does not really come from deep insight, from a conscious state, then it will only be temporary and not really revolutionary to one’s life.
Any conscious change one makes in a particular field, begins to affect and make a change in all other areas of life that we have not been aware of or repressed them for years.
