We all want to understand our purpose and for most of us that will require a process of change and self transformation. Positive change will shake the effects of our influences and will bring about a greater understanding of our habits and motivations.
Lasting change is a process that includes a strong desire, dedication, reflection and will.
Your greatest first challenge is in understanding who you are. I am not talking about the labels that are imposed upon you by society. I’m talking about the inner you that only you can know.
Surviving the New Babylon first means finding yourself among the masses, extricating yourself and discovering the individual buried beneath the labels, peer pressure and expectations of others.
Discovering your true inner self means letting go of what you think you know and believe in and to simply start over. That means spending time reflecting and in meditation. Giving time to youself and your thoughts alone.
You will begin to better understand your emotions and why you perceive things the way that you do. Connecting with your inner self, remembering things and making connections to your past will give you insight into why certain triggers can easily upset you or why some things put you in unusually good moods.
Reflection is a stage of work that will allow you to live with greater awareness. You will come to conclusions and make decisions more consciously, instead of allowing your inner conscious, or subconscious to make decisions for you. You will start to trust yourself more and believe in your intuition. Many wonderful things will start to happen, but you have to start laying the groundwork and that requires time and commitment.
I hope you will find some inspiration in this short post. There is a lot more to be said on the subject and I will continue posting on the process of self transformation regularly. This will also be covered in greater depth in my book, Post-Sanity: Surviving the New Babylon which will initially be released as an e-book. I am aiming for a Nov-Dec release, so stay tuned, follow along and believe in your transformation and when you do, you’ll start noticing big changes. I guarantee it.
