The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.-Joseph Campbell
I know reading blogs we just hurry along, whiz through, and see if there is anything pertinent in the post that we need to know right now. Well indulge me for a second, let me put the above quote to you again, this time read it and just sit with it for a moment. And, see if you can observe your reaction to it.
The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.
Depending on where you are in life, you might have different reactions to this quote. If you feel at ease, things are probably going just as they should; you are enjoying your life and feel like you are living authentically. However, if you at all feel unaligned in how your external life lines up with your internal desires and dreams, then this quote might bring up feelings of anger, shame, or fear. If you feel financially strapped, you might have the reaction that the “privileged” are the only ones who have the money to be who they truly desire to be (all in there cute lululemon). If you feel stuck in some part of your true expression of where you are in life, you might be asking the question, but how do I do this exactly? How do I get clear on who I am so that I could have the energy and happiness I see others beam?
In my journey of becoming more of who I am, I have noticed some very critical steps along the way
1. Be Open
Learn to be inquisitive and curious. Start to notice where your interests take you. Look for new experiences; ask for them. Reaffirm your openness by trying something new. Have courage.
2. Be Okay with Uncertainty
Stop controlling your life and others. See uncertainty as possibility. Have faith that your needs will be met. Be excited by change.
3. Svadhyaya- Self-Study (one of yoga’s niyama’s(self-disciplines))
Engage in an active practice of yoga and meditation to know the self. Learn to quiet the mind to be able to hear inner wisdom. Get coaching to reflect and take action on your dreams. Stop listening to the negative mind. Let go of destructive habits. Make peace with your past. Act with commitment to your own inner knowing.
