How do you know you’re on the right path… in life, at work, in your relationships? According to Caroline Myss, the answer is simple: you don’t have to betray yourself.
It takes mindfulness or conscious self-awareness to feel the discomfort of self-betrayal. In my work I notice too many people just numbing these uncomfortable feelings with busyness (the hidden drug of the 21st Century). They numb with other things too – superficial relationships and fairweather friendships (with people who don’t stick around in dull or tough times), shopping, drinking, taking pills, being obsessed with their appearances / facade, social media, over exercising, eating, travelling, workaholism and just living in fear (or staying in the comfort zone). But busyness is the one thing most people don’t think of as bad for them. Stop the madness for doing and just be from time to time. It’s the ‘being’ that helps us stay on purpose.
