“If I have lost confidence in myself, I have the universe against me.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I must be honest with you, as I sit down to write this, I am feeling a lack of confidence on the subject. The only things running through my head about the topic have all been covered in my 3 previous posts in the series. I had originally planned to write part 4 on the feeling of oneness. I decided against that and to go in a different direction for 1 very simple reason, I don’t know a single person (including myself) who has actually reached this state of nirvana! So, how could I possibly write something guiding you to it, when I have yet to achieve it?! My writing comes from within myself, from my personal experience. Technically, I could go to Google and search for something along the lines of, “how to reach the state of oneness”, there were 7,520,000 results. Or “achieving nirvana” which got me 437,000 results. I could easily read a few articles, find a good meditation and copy/paste some quotes or something. I won’t do that. Why? because I would feel like I was cheating you. I refuse to make a post, just to make a post. I won’t have “filler” on this blog!
In order to remedy my dilemma I decided to make a change to my series. Self-reflection it is. In my opinion, self-reflection is one of the most important obstacles we can conquer in our lifetime. It can be scary, painful, confusing & a very long process. I believe that true self-reflection just might lead us to that state of Oneness we all desire. I don’t know for sure, but it couldn’t do harm to make it a part of our process. In order to determine what we want so that The Universe can synchronize to bring it to us, we need to know ourselves. So, self-reflection is a necessary step in manifestation!
