PRACTICE SOMETHING THAT REFLECT SELF-WORTH: DESCENT INTO THE SELF
Sometimes I found myself struggling with everything: if I am dedicating time to my Family, I feel I should be more engaged with my work; if I work I feel I am neglecting my Family; if I am leaving the life of my dreams, I feel there’s still something missing…
This “something” is self-love and self-acknowledgment.
When this state occurs it means we are not present to who we are and to the freedom we have whenever we choose to do/be (not to do/not to be).
I want to share with you a thought from “The Dalai Lama’s Book of Meditations” that ispired my meditation time today and brought me back to tranquillity and peace of mind.
“There are many circumstances that make us unjust, ambitious or aggressive. All around us, everything is pushing us in that direction, often out of some commercial interest: I have to possess this or that object, otherwise my life will be lamentable. The world is presented to us as essentially competitive, divided into “the winners” and “the losers”, but that too is a false vision, deliberately false. It is a rapid scan of the surface which eliminates any descent into the self, any meditation and reflection”.
