The process of becoming a more conscious human being is a slow, purposeful path. It is not for the faint of heart, or for those who think of it as a hobby. It is much more consuming than any hobby.
The reason why it is such a deliberate choice is that when we make the conscious choice to work on ourselves, to delve into our depths, and really do the great work, it becomes something that spreads throughout our entire life.
You cannot just “be conscious” on weekends or at workshops, it is something we must embody every waking moment of every day. It is an identity, it is who you are. It is not a facade or a character you play.
That means it affects what you do, how you do it, and why you do it. It affects your relationships, your choices around food, lifestyle, and even friends. It becomes a guiding light that illuminates all aspects of your life.
Are you ready? Have you already made the choice? Have you started second guessing yourself about that choice? Are you joyfully dancing down that path or has it caused some disruption in your status quo?
Do not despair, no matter how hard a path it may seem. The light is not at the end of the tunnel, it is actually all around you!
