One of the first things I noticed when I started on this path of self-awareness was that I had so many beliefs that I’d taken on over the years that were handed down to me from somebody else, and that I believed to be who I was.
What helped me become aware of these beliefs was this simple practice. Allow yourself to sit quietly every morning before starting your day for just five to ten minutes. Yes, thoughts will come and go, but just allow them to do that without getting attached to them. Just observe them. When you are finished, continue observing the mind throughout your day. Becoming aware of our beliefs and then letting go of the ones that are not ours helps reveal our true nature.
