“The most fundamental expression of self-responsibility is reliance on our own minds – the choice to think and to operate consciously – as contrasted with living second-hand, off the borrowed values and judgments of others. To look at the world through one’s own eyes and be willing to live by one’s own judgment, requires courage, self-trust, and intellectual conscientiousness.” –Nathaniel Branden
All of these powers – the practice of living consciously, self-acceptance, self-responsibility, self-assertiveness, living purposefully, and personal integrity – are powered by and unlocked when we move into the heart.
Loving oneself is the prerequisite for our psychological and spiritual sanity.
When we unlock the powers of the heart we activate:
- consciousness rather than unconsciousness
- self-acceptance rather than self-disowning
- self-responsibility rather than passivity, alibiing, or blaming
- self-assertiveness rather than self-suppression
- purposefulness rather than drifting
- integrity rather than self-betrayal
These powers unlock the ability to move from distorted self-love to conscious, intelligent and awakened self-love.
When we experience loss, trauma or deep disappointment, we lock up parts of our heart, that block our access to self awareness, acceptance and ultimately, self love.
In the next O, we will explore new tools for the journey into the heart to unlock the messages you have there, to dialog with the pain and the patterns, and unlock YOUR particular heart’s intelligence, creativity and compassion.
