WE START OUR QUEST SIMPLY AS WE ARE NOW.
Does starting a personal life quest seem too difficult? How would we even know where to start? The answer is simple: We can simply start as we are, right now. We simply accept our current limitations and aim to better understand them. We then try new strategies to overcome these limitations! This is a simple & logical method.
…Can you accept where you are right now and start from there?
OUR VERSION OF REALITY IS LIMITED & BIASED.
Let’s start with the scientific basis for this approach. According to conventional science, our mind creates a limited & edited version of external reality. We use a limited internal representation of the world. We do this by selecting a filtered input from our 5 physical senses. This is further influenced by our past memories.
The result is a minimal & biased interpretation of reality! It’s highly colored or prejudiced by our previous experiences & social conditioning. Our biased reality is a major limitation of being human!
WE CAN CORRECT FOR ANY PAST BIAS.
What if we recognized our biased interpretation of reality and adjusted our thinking accordingly? We could decide to be more open and search for other interpretations. The decision to do so is purely our choice! We could even use this realization to motivate us to change. So, it’s important to be aware of our limited & biased viewpoint.
…Where in life could you have a biased interpretation of reality?
REGAIN SOVEREIGNTY OVER YOUR THOUGHTS.
We need to raise our awareness so we can become more open to new possibilities. We aim to increase our awareness of the whole experience of life. That includes observing our own thoughts, feelings & emotions. We can then better assess all aspects of our life, both internal and external.
By selecting which thoughts, we promote, we essentially take back our autonomy. By being more aware of our thoughts & decision making, we take back control of our life.
INNER AWARENESS ALLOWS US TO BE AUTHENTIC.
We can better observe and understand our mind. Through this inner connection we can also access our true innermost self. This is our intrinsic or natural state. It’s a sense of inner peace, joy & knowing. By tapping into our pure inner state, we are comforted & supported in all we do. We also have better access to any further insights we need. This provides us the direction we need for rapid personal growth.
…Do you want to be a more authentic version of yourself?
OVERCOME YOUR NEGATIVITY & DARK SIDE.
As we further understand our mind, we can better manage the negative aspects we observe. This includes facing painful memories & emotions. We become better at processing our emotions and releasing them. It’s important to experience our feelings and quickly release any suppressed emotions. Otherwise, they can build up and cause internal distress & damage. Confronting and successfully processing our feelings leads to more courage & wisdom.
SELF-MASTERY NEEDS AUTONOMY OF THOUGHT.
Maintaining sovereignty over our thoughts is the pathway to our freedom! We always have the freedom to choose which thoughts we promote. It doesn’t matter what our external circumstances are, we always have this choice. Maintaining this sovereignty over our thoughts is central to self-mastery!
The secret to transformation is to engage with the right thoughts! We aim to build positive lines of thought and encourage positive emotions. This promotes joy and unlocks our potential. We can then fulfill our exquisite & unique role! Living our life purpose provides more contentment & fulfilment. It also benefits the world as a whole.
WE CAN BECOME LOVE ITSELF. WE CAN JUST ‘BE’.
Being kind & loving is an essential part of personal growth. But the spiritual masters tell us there is an even higher state. This is ‘pure joy & bliss’.
Above this, there exists only a state of pure essence. This is where you can just purely ‘BE’. In this ultimate human state, there is no attachment or active desire for anything. This ultimate state is sometimes termed Nirvana or Enlightenment. It is said to be beyond bliss and beyond adequate description in human terms.
…Do you aspire to explore these highest states of being?
FINDING OUR ESSENCE IS THE ULTIMATE QUEST.
Everyone’s life path is different & unique. The path can appear difficult, so we might seek help or instruction. External support can assist us, but it is essentially an individual journey. This quest is to unlock our full potential, and to experience ultimate wellbeing.
