We have opinions that shut us off from our life. We do not live objectively, open-mindedly, mindfully aware of what is going on within us and around us. We are blind to the realities in control of what we do and do not. Our nighttime dreams try to get through to us. Our slips of the tongue. Our selective "forgetting" things that reflect our ambivalence about, or opposition to, things we say we "love." Contradictions that live within us unnoticed/unnamed determine choices we make not-knowing why we make them. We think we mean one thing while doing another, and do not know who is "running the show." Integrity/sincerity/spontaneity require that we commune with ourselves in an on-going and regular way, so that we know what we know and are clear about who we are and how things are with us on all levels all of the time. We do not kid ourselves, fool ourselves, deceive ourselves, lie to ourselves, tell ourselves what we want to hear-- but live as one with ourselves, within and without. Anything less than mindful oneness will not do. Listening to our dreams and conducting routine hearing/listening sessions with ourselves regarding where we stand with all that is at issue in our life, are essential to a life well-lived, in balance and harmony with ourselves and our circumstances. Knowing our own mind is essential knowing. We get there by hearing/listening to ourselves.
One thought on “February 19-A, 2023”
The unexamined Self is blind, a danger to itself and other selves.
