Time with yourself is an important dimension of life.During this time we allow ourselves to reflect, ponder and analyze our ideas, actions and feelings. We meet ourselves in our own private world, in our own truth.
Each and every day we move through the world actively engaging with ideas, people, work and pleasure. This Intersentient Dimension of life is important, but what about actively engaging with ourselves? Is that not also important?
Too often we forget to make time for ourselves - truly alone time spent in contemplative analysis or simply quiet time focusing on nothing at all. Without this commitment to our own internal health, we can be more easily led astray from our personal path and into decisions and actions that are against our own best interests. This 'alone time' is the Stop.Breathe.Focus. time of the 6D 30 Second of Clarity practice. It is never wise to Move before focusing and Flow cannot be achieved without clarity of purpose. Take the time to know yourself and transform not only how the world sees you, but also how you see the world.
Balance this dimension through explorations of meditation, writing and nature. Learn to know yourself profoundly and your ideas will become clearer. You can then better reflect your true self to the world.
