step 6 – You do not identify with things the same way you once did
If we “wake up” then by definition our state of mind has changed. When this happens it is natural that we no longer do or like the same things we once did. It also means that we have passed a crucial stage of awakening.
From this new vantage point, we can create much more freely and be more in control of our world. We now correctly know that we have a definitive say in shaping our destiny compared to during the time period when we were asleep.
Once we see things through this lens the genie is out of the bottle so to speak. What we have seen can not be unseen. There is a profound paradigm shift and things can never be the same again.
With this new power comes great responsibility, for when we go within that is where we find endless wells of knowledge, strength and untapped potential. This can manifest itself in many different ways. From the foods we eat to the music we listen to and the people we align with, the list is endless.
Old habits fall by the wayside and are replaced with new habits based on our clear outlook of the world as we now see it. Therefore, our new reality will undoubtedly unfold with different predictions and results.
This is the essence of change. By breaking the same recurring patterns of the past, we allow ourselves to step into an exciting and unpredictable future full of unlimited possibilities.
The old self is gone and in turn, because we are no longer repeating those same thought patterns every day our future must be different.
