5 Deep Insights About How to Transform into Your Extraordinary Self
The search for self begins from the simple question “ Who am I?” Gaurav Arora in conversation with Bob Anderson in the xMonks Drive Podcast brings forth the spiritual connotation in the process of becoming the self.
1. Turn inwards
A simple question like, “Who am I?” has the power to turn our world upside down! All religious upbringing has been obliterated by the onus of this question, the searching it inspires. We look for answers outside of ourselves, but we can turn inwards with these three simple terms. It all sounds like no big deal in retrospect. It is astonishing to move from a genuine dualistic religious view of life to an equally genuine non-dualistic spiritual view of life.
2. Suffering shines
Robert Bly says, “men will make their greatest contribution to the community from the wound.” Sharing the views on his process of becoming the person he is, Bob reflects upon some instances from his as well. He quotes that “I am arising in Bob Anderson”. All the suffering in life is because of not knowing your true identity. Until you realize your true Self, you believe yourself to be the name that has been given to you. This statement is so complete in its own beauty. The journey to self is the journey of expansion. You are not who you think you are. You are none of those seemingly defining conditions or states.
