In my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within
Your Own Thoughts Can Be Your Worst Enemy
What do you keep in your mind most of the time? Isn’t it true we are mainly focused on our physical self and our physical life? Thinking about a spiritual Self that seems to be outside the concerns of your physical life may seem impractical and unrealistic. But once we understand that this spiritual Self is the creative energy behind our life, we might take a different attitude!
Discovering your Silent Master gives you power to shape your life and create your world far beyond your physical powers. In so doing, you can change from feeling passive, vulnerable, and stagnant to feeling joyous, free, and creative.
Most of us are so preoccupied with our physical pursuits our marriages, our jobs, the kids’ education, politics, the evening news, the economy and so on that we don’t think in terms of self development, much less Self Discovery. If we don’t understand how we are responsible for creating our environment, we may not feel motivated to take responsibility for the quality of our thinking. We may vaguely feel that the world is just “out there,” and we try our best just to survive. We may feel isolated, unimportant, and separate, believing that we have no real or significant role to play in the world. Sometimes it isn’t until some sort of tragedy or illness strikes that we are motivated to dig deeper into who we really are and what we can accomplish.
Self discovery is actually going on all the time, whether you realize it or not. With or without tragedy or illness, every minute of your life is some sort of self discovery. That’s because everything you think, say and do every minute is reflecting your present concept of yourself. Your life is a picture of who you think you are. How very important, then, to know who you really are.
