About this deal
So it’s important that you look for signs that you’re doing things right. Here are seven signs you can look out for. This is a book for those that are willing to devle inward and reflect on their own relationship with the parts of their life that are causing suffering. I especially love the reflection questions in each section. New York Times Bestselling collection of poetry and short prose focused on understanding how past wounds impact our present relationships. During the years when I had abandoned myself, my mind felt undeniably heavy. I knew I needed to find a clear way to help me feel lighter."
He practices vipassana meditation, a meditation style in which ‘the meditator uses his concentration as a tool by which his awareness can chip away at the wall of illusion that cuts him off from the living light of reality,’ explains Tricycle. Either way, simply ride the waves of those feelings. Then, in your calmer moments, remind yourself of your intentions and goals for yourself. The book is written in a simple and poetic style, with short sentences and paragraphs that convey profound messages. Perez uses metaphors, analogies, and stories to illustrate his points and to inspire the reader. He also quotes from various sources, such as spiritual teachers, philosophers, poets, and scientists, to support his arguments and to show the universality of his message. But what about being true to yourself? Some people are afraid that seeking growth means being a fake or artificial version of yourself. Let’s talk about the difference between your reactionary self and your intentional self in the next section. This is the real you.

Seven: you can now hear the voice of your own intuition and you find that it’s guiding you in a positive direction. Just wrapped up reading Lighter by Yung Pueblo (a pen name for Diego Perez). What I love about Yung Pueblo having bought and devoured his first two collections of poetry and prose on the same themes--he's got this way of using easy-to-grasp language to discuss deep ideas and concepts. He likens our desires and aversions to stones damming up a river, trapping us in a loop of stress, controlling tendencies, and constant pleasure hunting. His writing and metaphors are poetic but without using language that can be verbose or alienating (something I probably could learn from). A radically compassionate plan for turning inward and lifting the heaviness that prevents us from healing ourselves and the world, from the New York Times bestselling author of Clarity & Connection
Two: You’re looking at others through a lens of compassion. As you offer yourself love and forgiveness, you recognize the work that others are doing and can give them the same love. Self-love means having compassion for yourself and treating yourself with curiosity. It’s about seeking to understand yourself on a deeper level. It requires being brazenly honest with yourself at all times, building healthy habits, and accepting yourself unconditionally. Whether you’ve already begun your process of intentional growth or are just getting started, this Blink offers you actionable insights into a deeper understanding of why you react the way you do and how you can free yourself to achieve your goals in life. The most important thing you can do is allow yourself to feel an emotion without being controlled by it.
In these rapidly changing times, it is more important than ever to know ourselves well, even and especially in the face of turmoil. The Way Forward encourages readers to connect more deeply to their intuition, using it to remain focused and grounded amidst a world in constant flux. Progressing naturally from both Inward and Clarity & Connection, The Way Forward is an inspired beginning. Buy now: Through understanding and accepting the impermanence of life, we relinquish our hold on how we wish things to be, and accept how they really are. It is about training ourselves to set aside the emotional baggage we carry, so that we are 'informed by the past, but no longer weighed down by it'. Ultimately, to become 'lighter', we need to practice long-term self-awareness and self-reflection by examining our inner narratives and how our own thinking effects our emotions. Growth and maturity aren’t about achieving perfection. Your goal is progress. You’ll experience benefits from progress, and these benefits will, in turn, motivate you to continue your journey of growth.
