It’s easy to live life on auto-pilot. Not really paying attention. Phoning it in.
But only by being fully conscious in the present moment of your thoughts, choices, desires, state of being, and actions can you genuinely know who you are.
Being self-conscious is being self-aware. Self-awareness is an inner listening of the Soul.
Listen intently, my friend. Listen consciously.
