It has been awhile and I am reminded…

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.  Who looks outside, dreams.  Who looks inside, awakens.”

Carl Jung

Again, I am reminded of what self-empowerment really means.  In my gestalt training, I remember really getting this statement.  When we look inside with conscious awareness (mindfulness) to observe our responses and reactions, we gain the ability to question our thoughts and acknowledge our feelings…..and we awaken.  We awaken from the dream that outside ourselves things are happening to us and we have no control.  From inside we have all the control to respond and relate how we choose, to see a situation from all angles, to come into our hearts, our centre and know the truth that is ours, this moment.  For me, that is self-empowerment…..coming into the Heart and operating from that place that is my centre……from here, I can see.
