“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.” -Eckhart Tolle
The Conscious Path is a personal journal about living life authentically and in accordance with one’s values. It is about a life-long practice of mindfulness and a commitment to growth, integrity, and self-awareness. Specifically, this is a written attempt at understanding myself better so that it can provide you, the reader, with tools, insights, and support as you embark on your own unique path of self-discovery.
I remember how lost I felt growing up, especially in my adolescent years as I was transitioning into my own. I struggled with the emergence of difficult emotions, often feeling confused and restless. Unaware of it at the time, I lacked the tools and desperately needed the guidance of a positive role model in my life, one who could teach me about self-worth and self-love. Without this, I was left to my own devices, developing harmful coping strategies to fill my incessant need for understanding, acceptance, and love.
Looking back, I know now that I needed empathy. I needed to be seen and heard. Someone who could help me understand the complexities of my emotions and provide the space for me to express my feelings and needs. Hence the creation of The Conscious Path, which is meant to serve as a reminder that you’re not alone.
