Lately, my morning routine consists of drinking a cup of coffee with my partner while sharing our dreams. Afterward, I read a meditation book by Krishnamurti called The Book of Life: Daily Meditation. Krishnamurti wrote 365 meditations dedicated to each day of the year, geared to move us towards spiritual enlightenment.
These meditations force the reader into psychoanalysis, breaking down mental constructs created by past conditioning. I became aware, that I rarely experienced inner peace. While every other moment, I felt worried, anxious, and afraid. But these negative emotions were not being triggered by my environment, there was nothing presently occurring. Which meant I was creating a worst case scenario in my head.
This lead to the discovery that while my mind was full of thoughts of worry and concerns. I didn’t have any mental space left to be creative, and as someone who relied on creativity for income, I knew I was sabotaging my life.
Furthermore, documenting our awareness can be beneficial to redirect us into a more positive state of mind. To be able to connect with the divine, we must clear our communication channels. The mind must be empty to be filled.
Who is aware? Your ego or higher self? Have you paid close attention to your thoughts and feelings?
