Ever Wondered how to discover yourself? Here are your only 3 ways of knowing yourself.
1. Listening to YOU during meditation.
You see, we have all the wisdom (I mean GOD) within us. However, God who talks through our conscience has such calm and low voices that your noise or the noise of your neighbors will make Him go unheard. So the next day you wanna know how great you are, how upright you have been, what exactly your desires or needs are, just sit under a tree, close your eyes and hear yourself chat with yourself. There is never a greater counselor or inspirer than you. It is just that you never listen to yourself.
So reduce on the noise, ask for a holiday, take 10 minutes in a day and calmly listen to your heart, meditate upon your life, what your work has been like, and the dreams you have always heard. You will discover the greater you that you never knew before.
2. Listening to your friends or even enemies.
I know we have always advised you not to listen to what people say about you but this depends on the kind of people and their motive for talking about you. Some people really talk about our weaknesses or successes with a good motive; it is wise to listen to them. They can even help suggest the possible means of improving your life. However, do not be drowned in comments and words of those who want you down. I know it may not be easy to know which people to listen to and those to avoid, but as you grow and assess people, this is not so hard.
So make a step and visit your councilor, a trusted friend, a pastor, or a parent and ask him about yourself if you cannot exactly define who you are. Remember, everyone needs this option no matter how stronger he or she may seem to be. We all need people to lean onto in some situations. The most important aspects of this option could be your wife or husband, your parent or relative and other closely attached people.
3. Listening to God.
I know few of us know how to speak to nature but it is one of those powerful ways of contemplating the meaning of life. So take some time and read God’s word, enter into a true prayer guided by your desires but not the cram work from Sunday school.
Listen to a pastor or priest preach, read motivational and inspirational books and listen to the powerful message from nature like rivers, wind, birds singing, mountains and hills and interesting miracles happening around the world. Many of us think that God no longer speaks to people, but He does and in many ways than even before. He is speaking to you right now through this post.
