And, unfortunately many a times, we don’t know our self either! We are always immersed in activities and never take the time to simply be with our self in contemplation and meditation. Really figure out who we are and what is our real nature.
When we meet someone, interact with them; it is wise to take a few minutes out and ask oneself- “what do I think of them?”
Try to really question your perception of them, your inference about them with an unbiased mind. Try to observe them, really listen to what they are saying and see if your conclusion/your branding of “who they are” is different than who they seem to be as they are speaking to you.
Each day set aside some time to also reflect on your own self. Take some time out to also reflect on your own self. After all, most of us tend to conclude about our own self too- I am beautiful, I am smart, I am rich and so on.
We all change and morph over time. See how you are changing. Are you going in the direction you want to… i.e. are you morphing and transforming into a better version of yourself or are you regressing into your old bad behaviors or even worse picking up new detrimental ‘thought and action’ patterns!!
See, if you can find that gap between your conclusion of who you think someone is and who they possibly could be!
