This is the second of two posts that will be about self-awareness, specifically about how to find your inner balance and how to bring the most out of your life.
When I was younger, I was a bit of a self-awareness freak. I used to keep a journal and meticulously list all my thoughts and feelings. So for me, self-awareness isn’t something that I have to feel. It’s a matter of knowing what’s important and not important.
I started out looking at self-hypnosis and how to get rid of all the “wonders” in my life about the world around me. It became a constant part of my life, and when I was a kid, I would walk around in my underwear and get up to stare at a cartoon. I would see the cartoon on TV and then say, “Oh, I’m watching it. That’s weird.
Well, its more like staring at a pretty shirt, and then saying, “What a pretty shirt.
In order to get an accurate sense of what its like to be a human being, I used to think of myself as a dog. If you’ve ever wanted to look at your dog, you’ve probably had this little bit of it, but it’s actually pretty cool.
Like most of the time, if you stare at humans, you’re probably going to stare at them for a while. Just so you know.
But then I realized that the same concept applies to looking at other animals. And since the human race is pretty much just a bunch of dogs, this pretty shirt thing is pretty much the equivalent of staring at a dog. It is an experience that has become a bit of an obsession for me, and I feel like I have enough understanding of what its like to be a human to be able to appreciate that this is normal. It’s part of the human condition.
For me, its about that big. I can not stand looking at myself on the bathroom mirror while I pee. I am not a great self-absorbed person, but this is one of those things that I see every day and every time I see myself I get so angry I want to strangle whoever is doing it. But then I realize that if I am a dog and I get stuck in a time loop, I am going to feel really bad.
I hate my dog. In general I hate people who are in a fixed time-loop, especially if they are trying to use it to do something bad (or evil) and I get stuck in it. I’m not saying that I have a problem with the people who are in time-loops. I’m just saying that I’m not one of those people.
Yes, you are. We are. You are the person who wants to strangle someone on the internet because you can’t see the time-loop in your head. Well, unless you can see the time-loop and you know that the person who is doing it is trying to do something bad, then you are not.
