The three levels of self-awareness are really three sides of the same coin. The first is the level of awareness of our thoughts or desires. We may think we know what we would like to do if we just put our mind to it, but I have found that most of us are afraid to take a chance.
The first step to self-awareness is to acknowledge that we have thoughts. This is the point where we can start to recognize how we might want to act.
The second level is that of awareness of our actions. This is where you see the “autopilot” part of the equation. We all know what we are going to do if we just do it, but most of us are afraid to take a chance on doing something.
That’s like asking someone to stop smoking, but the majority of us won’t. We are afraid to say, “I don’t like it.” We are afraid to ask, “Why?” We are afraid to say, “No, I’m not doing it.” We are afraid to say, “That’s not how I feel.
This is where the danger of our habits and routines come in. You have to be aware of the danger of what we habitually do and do not do, as well as what we habitually say and do not say, and how that feeds into our lives. It might seem like a simple thing, but it is the most important thing in this equation.
It is a simple thing, but it is not all it’s cracked up to be. A simple thing can cause the biggest problems. When you are stuck in a habit, routine, or compulsion, you can be completely unaware when it is coming on, but it can affect everything that is happening in your life. For most of us anyway.
The most important thing to do when you start having a habit is to stop and think about what to do about it. This can be difficult at first, but just as important as the problem, is the solution. For the problem, change the habit. For the solution, change the way you are reacting to the habit. For most of us anyway.
For most of us anyway. For most of us anyway.
We all know someone from a long time ago whose life has been disrupted by a seemingly random event. Maybe it happened while you were on vacation or working on a project, maybe it happened while you were going to a party, or maybe it happened while you were trying to sleep. But it’s probably happened to you. It’s not just random.
While our friend is having an existential crisis, there is a small group of people who are not having the same crisis. They are the “long thread like structure.” These are the people who are trying to find a way to get through their lives, with the results of their life being something that they are completely unable to control. Their lives are like a long thread, with all of the different threads coming together at one end.
