Words of Encouragement to People Experiencing a Mental Breakdown, Depression, Crisis or Burnout
Chapter 2: The Ego-Self
You Have Chosen to Remember: A Journey of Self-Awareness, Peace of Mind and Joy by James Blanchard Cisneros.
Going to a junkyard is a sobering experience. There you can see the ultimate destination of almost everything we desired. 1
- Roger Von Oech, “A Whack on the Side of the Head”
I don’t read books, meditate or travel to become awake, I am awake. I am just as awake as you are. The only difference is that I recognize it and you may not have remembered it yet. Choosing to remember your true state, that of being awake, may be the only decision that separates you from those who already see themselves as awake. Once we choose to awaken, we find that peace and joy become the motivation for more and more of our activities.
