Why should we care about raising our consciousness? When we set an intention to change and grow, we begin a journey in which we move from coping, to learning and finally, to the enjoyment of living.
Here are some of the shifts we move through:
From dependence on the clock, to charting a direction, to moment-to-moment guidance from intuition.
From doing things right, to doing the right things, to being your true self.
From lack of self discipline to having personal willpower to serving divine will.
From being out of control, to being in control, to trusting and letting go of the need to control.
With each step, we experience greater freedom, fulfillment and joy. Worth going for, don’t you think?
“Every human has four endowments - self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change.”
