I ran a workshop last week on finding purpose and direction in life, it was a truly wonderful event in which a true understanding of living from our 'True Self' rather than the 'false self' is our primary purpose. That what we do is secondary, how we do what we do is primary. And how we do what we do, depends on one thing only, are we 'awake' are we living consciously, are we mindful?
You will know if you are living consciously because you will be in a place of joy, peace, happiness, and any moments of feeling less than peace is a moment of unconscious living, that can be resolved through being mindful. How much of your life is spent feeling happy and how much is spent feeling stressed, a sense of loss or searching? Now of course part of the unconscious living is a belief that we will be unhappy at times, but if you cannot feel a peace, a stillness underneath the unhappiness then you are identified with the story your mind that is telling you about that which is making you unhappy. So if the mind is making you unhappy who is the 'you'? And who or what is the mind? Ever wondered?
The 'you' is your True Self, the story is your 'false self'. The unhappy feeling comes from the story of the mind, not aligning with you, there is inner conflict between the story of the 'false self' and the truth of the 'True Self', the feeling tells you this. Your purpose is to live from the True Self where only truth can be experienced.
As you choose to live consciously from the 'True Self' you will live a life of joy and peace. The purpose of the Self Empowerment Foundation and its services is to show you how.
