Self Awareness is not about improving ourselves, becoming a better person, identifying and eliminating 'weaknesses', overcoming 'personality defects'. It is not about cognitive reflection, an effort to control ourselves and our external environment, a replacement of the 'negative' with the 'positive', self and world interpretations through conditionings. Its is not about expectations of how we should be and how life itself should be experienced.
We are born self aware. Self Awareness is the innate ability to see our self in our own true light, beyond who we wish we were or who we may think we are.
Self Awareness is the ever lasting inner journey from self connection, to self acceptance, to self transformation that happens in the heart.
