When you first open the book The Self-Awareness Cure by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, you are given the title “The Three Levels of Self-Awareness.” At the first level, you are told to simply notice your thoughts and feelings. At the second level, you are told to notice your body. At the third level, you are told to notice your thoughts and feelings and body simultaneously.
The first level is what we refer to as “awareness.” This is the first level of self-awareness. We all remember the feeling we had after we saw the movie Cool Hand Luke. This is the exact feeling that we remember from the movie.
That feeling is awareness. The third level is awareness plus body awareness. This is what I call “internal self-awareness.” This is where you are allowed to notice things that you can’t see outside the box. It’s how you can use your internal senses to create a “virtual self” that’s more aware than the actual reality you live in.
The most important thing to remember here is the ability to be aware of your inner self. You’re not just aware of yourself, you’re aware of your inner self. This is the place where you can be able to create a virtual experience that is more important than the reality you live in. If the goal is to create an inner peace, you can’t just go out and find an inner peace and expect to have one. You need to create one.
How do you create an inner peace? How do you create an inner peace when you dont even know that you have one? Well the best way to create one is by becoming aware of your own. And the best way to do this is to realize you have a mental self.
Many people struggle in this process, especially when they feel that they are in a constant state of doubt and anxiety. Most of us have tried to create a mental self, without really knowing what we were doing. We are not aware of how we are doing it, and the more we try to create this self, the more it becomes a mental construct.
You don’t really have to create a mental self, really. Just being aware of your mental self can be done by simply being aware of your thoughts.
A lot of people feel this way. When you are constantly worrying about the future, you are constantly in a state of anxiety. When you are constantly worried about your behavior, you are constantly in a state of depression. I know it’s not the perfect analogy, but just remember that your mental self can be a mental construct, and you can still have a healthy mental self without the need to create it. You can just be aware of your thoughts.
This is what self-awareness is. Being aware of your thoughts and their direction, and being aware of what you would like to achieve. Being aware that you are able to be your thoughts without having to create them. Being aware of the thoughts you have about yourself. Being aware that you are not alone.
Self-awareness is just the ability to be aware of yourself. For self-awareness to fully develop, you will have to give your awareness the ability to be your thoughts. To be your thoughts.
