Today is a beautiful day. I am observing a fine feeling of harmony. Clarity of what is important and what is not. I had a very insightful conversation with a friend of mine this afternoon. We shared a few thoughts which I want to share right here right now.
People who reached high level of awareness are in minority in a very much automated society. Sometimes we may feel lonely and disconnected and, in effect, doubt in our values. We may be tempted to settle for less to avoid loneliness. That is the main reason why it is crucial to get involved in such conversations and actively manage our time in order to be around people who share our values even though we may feel we will not acquire any new knowledge or information.
Having peers with whom we share values increases our confidence. Intellectual discrepancy between „us” and „them” is overwhelming, let’s not be afraid to say that. At the same time, it is important to be mindful of these differences to remember what differentiate us but also what still connects us. Confidence unconciously may lead to haughtiness. And that makes us further from compassion, connection, and ultimately true fulfillment.
These days I am observing my tendencies to ascetiscism. I feel that currently working out intensively, following a diet which is low in palatability, lots of mindful walks and being mindful of my private space seems like an optimal way of increasing my self-awareness. And if building self-awareness is not a priority in this life then I don’t know what is.
You know it’s real when you are who you think you are.
Sometimes I don’t know you lah.
