Who am I? It’s one of life’s greatest mysteries. A question asked by countless seekers.
Determining the answer to that question can be daunting. Many of us have spent a lifetime hiding our real self from others.
Consequently, we’ve lost touch with who we really are. We’re left with a distorted self-image, based on all sorts of unconscious decisions we made about ourselves and life, probably made when we were very young.
These decisions have nothing to do with reality. Yet we go through life acting on these erroneous conclusions as if they were indisputable truths.
The work we need to do is identify all those early decisions and false beliefs which no longer serve us.
We also need to identify, being brutally honest, all our beautiful attributes—the ones we tend to dismiss or devalue.
Let me suggest you try an eye-opening exercise. Email this question to 3-5 people: What do you see in me that I don’t see in myself?
You may be quite surprised with the responses you get. If you do this, I’d love to hear what happened. Come back and leave me a comment below.
