You didn't come into this life with much of a manual of who you are and what your purpose is for this life. Your wish list and job description weren't tattooed on your forarms when you were born, nor did you have any idea if life is a job, a school, or rather a play date. What are you here for? Are you doing it right? Your caregivers early in life taught you what they could, but they didn't tell you who you are. They couldn't. That's your job.
In fact, it's the most important thing you can do in life. Be yourself. Find out what that means. Look under all the rules other people gave you, and all the ways you tried to be like them, and figure out what's really you. What makes you happy? What makes you feel excited to be alive? What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning? In finding out who you are and expressing that in your life - your way, your rules - you will find intense happiness.
You didn't come with a written manual on how to do that. But you did get a full package with everything you need to make this life an amazing experience. Skills, natural abilities and strong suits, pre-installed happybuttons, and a rich and powerful sense of Self. You will find this package full of goodies for life, inside.
Many spiritual movements, inspirational speakers and self-help books talk about inner peace, and the journey inside to get there. It's still often kind of vague. What do you do? What tools do you use, and how do you handle what you find there? Where do you start? You feel like it should be obvious, and yet for most people, it's not. It's confusing. It's vague. You're not getting the results you want.
When you go on a journey, it helps to follow a path. You can go on your own, without a path, but it's a lot of stumbling around in the dark, bumping your toes and walking around in circles. If you're here, you've probably tried that already. It's easier with a path you can follow, a more-or-less paved route with road signs. Of course you have to find a path that will get you there. Not all of them do.
We consider ourselves a bit of a Travel Company. We've got a map. We've got tour guides who've been following these trails for years and know where the beautiful lookouts are, which slopes are slippery, and we can help you get where you're looking to go. We show the routes open to you, where they go and what to expect. Then you do the walking. It's practical, it's fun, and it's effective.
The journey inside is the travel of a lifetime. It's the scariest thing you can ever do, the most difficult, and the most rewarding. Finding your Self makes your life have meaning.
Part of figuring out who you are, is facing what is inside you. The parts that you always thought were you, but aren't. The lies you told yourself, or that others taught you as true. The parts that are you, but that you want to change and improve because they got damaged along the way. The walls and protections you put up when life got scary or painful. And under there, the beautiful, powerful sense of Self that feels so much like finally coming home.
You are so much more than you know...
Don't stop at just finding your Self. You already knew who you are before you came to this life. That's nothing new. You're here to do something with it. To express it. To play with your Self, to connect to others who are doing the same, and to make a great story together.
We'll teach you that, too. Because knowing your Self really only is worth it if you also get to express it with passion, with grace, dancing through life and embracing it. In this expressing, you really get to know what you are all about.
And at the end of your path? Well, there isn't really an end. There is always more. But as you walk your path, you will get to know your Self - the best travel companion. And you'll become a seasoned traveler, with amazing stories to tell.
