“Once we have awareness, we recover free will.”Don Miguel Ruiz, The Mastery of Love
Without awareness, I would still be trapped in the prison of my mind. Don Miguel Ruiz’s words in his books helped me to break free from the prison I created for myself. I had to first be able to see before I could become aware of the endless stories I was feeding myself as false truths. When I could see that I was CHOOSING to feed stories that were keeping me in my suffering and that I was creating my reality around those stories—OUCH! I’m not going to lie, it was a painful but incredibly freeing experience. When I can look at the words, thoughts, beliefs, and stories I’m playing in my mind as perspectives, I am embracing the awareness that I have the power to change what’s not working.I might not choose to do it, I might need to look deeper into what feels comfortable about the chaos, but by staying open and aware, I keep moving forward. That’s the beauty of awareness.
