The path to self discovery: Requires doubt
Day 7 of the 4th annual Explore More Summit. This is a free online conference that I would highly recommend; This year’s topics explore discovering our passions and joys. As I follow the the conference, I will try and share my experiences and encourage you to provide feedback or questions.
(Sidenote: Yes. I missed two days of updates. I am aware and will probably not back-post. Sometimes life comes at you hard and finding time write just doesn’t happen )
Today The feeling that is most prominent in my life is happiness. This morning I had breakfast with a very close friend; spending time with this person always improves my mood.
Today my body wants me to know nightmares happen, remembering them is not always possible.
If I move in the direction of my pleasure and satisfaction, one thing I might do is to take inventory of my thoughts, and create a wish-list for the future.
One part of myself that needs a little extra compassion is my neck. I seem to have injured myself in some unknown way and my neck is a bit sore. Shrug. Aging is weird.
A small affirmation or reminder I’d like to carry with me today is that discovering the truth of a thing begins with doubting the thing to it’s very nature. (With apologies to Descartes). Essentially in order to truly understand a difficult concept–one must first put aside any preconceived notions or biases and rationally and scientifically reexamine them until you can truly know what is real.
