Awareness is all about restoring your freedom to choose what you want instead of what your past imposes on you. Deepak Chopra
You are a free agent...free to choose all details of your life, all your highs and lows and even your thoughts. To be in complete charge of what you are doing and where you are going will require some changes.
Change usually starts with your mind. You have been programmed for certain responses; governed by your past, life experiences and ego.
The ultimate aim of the ego is not to SEE something, but to BE something.
The ego isn't so willing for you to open up and see life differently. The ego would rather be right than be happy.
"The moment you become aware of the ego in you, it is strictly speaking no longer the ego, but just an old, conditioned mind pattern. Ego implies unawareness. Awareness and Ego cannot coexist."
Awareness will allow you to notice your response triggers, to intercept them and finally change them. You have a choice to live from your heart or from your ego. So, live for today, leave yesterday and tomorrow alone, today is the only time you have....try to enjoy it.
