The term “journey of self-discovery” refers to a travel, pilgrimage, or series of events whereby a person attempts to determine how they feel, personally, about spiritual issues or priorities, rather than following the opinions of family, friends, neighbourhood or peer pressure. Wikipedia
Self Discovery: Face Your Demons.
Once you start looking at your life closely it can be a very uncomfortable and largely unpleasant experience. I understand those feelings acutely. You will be eternally grateful that you started the journey. The rewards and satisfaction you get from knowing yourself better are worth ir.
Confronting your “issues” allows you to discover your real self. You discover the real and authentic you whilst learning the importance of self-nurturing. Dealing with, accepting and managing the negative or less than desirable elements of you brings peace and understanding.
If you find yourself coming up short, do not beat yourself up either. Instead, understand the separation and see if you can make improvements to your behaviour, thoughts and emotions. These negative thoughts and beliefs have been your obstacles to inner growth.
Learn to forgive yourself. When your outer Self is aligned with your Inner Being, you will feel happy and free!
“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
– Buddha (Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.)
Self Discovery: Spend Time For Self-Reflection and Meditation
To know a person is to spend time with him or her. In the same manner, to build a relationship with yourself, you need to spend time getting to know more about yourself. You cannot know yourself well, if you are constantly surrounded by lots of noise, friends and family, or if you are always preoccupied in your mind and with things to do.
“To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.”
– Oscar Wilde (Irish Poet, Novelist, Dramatist and Critic, 1854-1900)
To kickstart the process of self-discovery, it may be a good idea to go on retreat. This is especially if you find it hard to think clearly amidst the everyday mayhem that is going on in your life. To know yourself intimately, make an exclusive date – away from your spouse or partner, kids, colleagues, boss and parents.
“The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment, it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.” – Orison Swett Marden
“The key to living a magical life is to be authentic. Be who you are. Have the courage to say ‘no’. Stand in your own divinity.”
Why not kick start your journey of self-discovery by attending this retreat!
