“The central problem is not that
You think too highly
Nor is it that
You think too lowly
Instead, it is that
You think constantly
Wu Hsin from The Lost Writings of Wu Hsin
(This was long before John 3:30 and C.S. Lewis with their definition of humility.)
Is this really true? I took a moment to consider what most of my thoughts are about … and yes they are usually about me. What I need… what I want… how I feel… how I see things… decisions I make… things I have to do…
So, today I learned (again) that one of the best ways to lighten up and find balance, is to stop thinking constantly about myself.
Self reflection and introspection are valuable for us to learn about our inner world… but lets all be mindful about crossing the line from seeking understanding to self absorption… and ego bashing or stroking.
Why not join me today and give your self a break, by shifting perspective away from what’s going on with you.
Free yourself from your small ego centric self.
Wake up and embrace the amazing world that we are all a part of.
