“To me, living consciously means accepting our human weaknesses and imperfections without judging ourselves harshly, and being willing to learn from our unconscious patterns of behavior once we become aware of them. It means looking at our experiences as gifts that can help us grow, recognizing everyone and everything we encounter as a potential teacher.
It means taking responsibility (not blame) for our thoughts, feelings, and actions, recognizing that they do have an effect on others. It means listening and reaching deeply inside ourselves to find our inner sense of truth, then doing our best to speak and live that truth moment to moment and day by day. And it means generously sharing the gift of our being, as well as our special talents and abilities, with others.”
Shakti Gawain, in “The Path of Transformation”
