Self-Awareness

Rather than a great evolutionary achievement, perhaps our self-awareness is a check-system that turns on the moment there is a variance between our true nature and what we are doing or thinking. Animals do not need this 'gift', because they remain true to their nature.

Whenever I am completely in balance with my nature (writing certain material, say), at that moment I have no comprehension of if I am this or that, happy or satisfied. For that time being, I JUST AM–in total unison with my truest nature and not “aware” of anything.

This is my truth. Only you can determine if there is any value in it for you.

C.G. Walters primarily writes fiction that focuses on the multidimensionality of our loves and our lives. His current novel, Sacred Vow is a metaphysical novel about a man who responds to the mysterious call of [his soulmate], opening the way to redefinition of both himself and his understanding of the world around him…Highly recommended. —Midwest Book Review.

Great thought CG. I feel more in my own skin when I'm doing what I love. Thank you for reminding us of the value of self importance.

Thank you, Alex.

A nice thought CG.

It is easy to forget—well certainly easy for me—that in a world of complexity our “true” nature is actually very simple.

Sure it’s a cliche, but it remains true that in self-discovery one only has to be true to who one really, and already, is...

True, John...
thanks for the visit and the input.

"to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man."
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, Hamlet.

many blessings to you and all you hold dear,
