Awareness and Self-Actualization Revisisted

Posted on July 20, 2015 at 8:20pm 1 Comment

The majority of those of us in the self-improvement, metaphysical or spiritual movement idealize a time when we are able to fully incorporate and live from the remembrance of the truths we have come to believe.

Someone makes a statement in such a way we hear only criticism or judgment: *poof* our sense of serenity is shattered. We’re cut off in traffic and our blood boils.
