Thinking About My Self All the Time

My Self

How Selfish. Egotistical. Narcissistic.

There is something scary about believing that wanting a Self is not selfish.

There’s something terrifying about admitting it’s our natural instinct towards a wholeness that is truly our birthright.

It makes us feel ashamed, judged, blamed. It makes us feel like helpless children.

How Evolutionary.

It’s a new movement for humans to recognize the value in having a Self. And the value in doing things in support of it.

Slowly, generation-ally, evolution-ally, we are waking to this concept. The Baby Boomers were the first batch of humans to understand that wanting a Self is a natural stage in our evolution.

And yet fifty or so years later, mainstream culture and religion still portray supporting a Self as a gluttonous and silly act.

Mock It If You Want

But the fact is We, the Baby Boomers children and grandchildren, are hungry for the truth. We are starved for messages of hope that give us permission to seek a Self. And for tools to help us experience more intimacy.

A Message of Hope

Us humans, we are inching our way towards a new vision of wholeness where we are more aware of what We can be. Slowly, we are building a culture that makes room for our Self to matter.

And by accepting our Self we are setting a rich foundation for a new kind of business, an Innerpreneurial kind of business, to take shape into a more sustainable world for Us all.
