Honest contemplation of self is an eye-opening activity. Look to your behaviors and question the self as to their growth-oriented properties. Are you on your path? Taking good care of the self? Focused on your immediate goals? In place of behaviors that are not conducive, that do not aid you in your growth, insert quiet time, time for contemplation and introspection, time for facing the truths of the self.
In quiet time clarity will come. Your truths will be revealed and your next steps appear before you. What is revealed may shake you, frighten you, or confront you, but that is good. Dare the self to not only take to heart that which says, “Okay, it’s now or never,” and make arrangements to proceed on your journey, fully aware that you are heading off into exactly where you need to go next.
In quiet contemplation what you seek will be revealed. All you have to do is pay attention, accept, and act from that place of knowing: from your heart. Even in the busyness of your life, take time to take care of the self today.
