Beneath the emotions, the difficulties, and the conflicts lies the knowing self. The knowing self is the true self, the balancing self, the bringer of truth and honesty. Alignment with this true self, in action and deed, in thought and spoken word, brings alignment of spirit, body, mind and emotions. In alignment the inner strength and deeper sense of who you are is bound to make itself known in more assertive and definitive ways.
The true source of power lies within. Stay connected to the knowing self through the turmoils of life and you will finally access this knowing self more fully and completely. Keep this self present as you go about your day, through ritual and reality, through pain and pleasure, through happiness and sadness. Stay in balance. This is what you seek.
