Self Awareness

Q: When I face a certain situation, my self wants to react. If I think that my response is not real, can I change my response?

A: Beyond all the calculations, now and in any situation, you will ultimately act the way you will because you are who you are - and you cannot act any other way. Only in the next degree of development will you understand why you acted the way you did.

Therefore, in these situations I simply advise plenty of reading of the recommended texts to direct you, consciously or unconsciously, to understand what is going on. Generally speaking, people don’t think about such questions as: “What is actually leading me?” They’re only bothered with “How do I get what I want?” On the other hand, you are already at the beginning of a process of understanding and self-recognition.
