What helps them keep that presence? It’s something called Personal Practice.
A personal practice should help increase your level of energy, so you can deal better with the complexity and busyness of our lives. But what differentiates a personal practice from other activities that also give you energy? For example, maybe you really enjoy doing karaoke with friends, or maybe you love shopping. Do those activities count as personal practices?
The difference is in this question: does this activity help me to be more conscious? If it does, then it’s a personal practice. If it only deviates from the reality, then it’s not.
The outside world reflects what’s going on in our inner world, so without a personal practice, it’s easy to get drifted away. Personal practice helps you see yourself from the perspective of an observer, not a victim of the outside pressures that only reacts to whatever happens to you. If you want to go deeper in the question of “Who Am I?“, it’s important to have a practice that supports that learning.
At Knowmads, we practice a variety of them, and we invite you to do the same.
