Sense of Self: In our new age of digital world, it is easy to lose identity of who we truly are by distractions, some of the things we feed our minds with and looking out for validation from popular opinions about ourselves and how to live our lives. To a large extent, most of that makes us feel pressured and this has led to high rate of depression, low self-esteem and even suicide in various societies across the world. Often times we go in search of what will fill our emptiness; some of us find security in different ideologies (Ancient teachings, traditions, cultures, religions, nature, sciences, cosmos and others). Most of what we look to, have the same hidden truth; “What you seek is within you". The moment of realization reveals the energy we hold within us and knowing that your higher self is within you. Not knowing our potential only makes us wander; We embrace who we are when we have a balanced sense of self and experience the world without losing touch with who we truly are. We can only help others if we first learn to help ourselves and knowing the countless energy we hold within helps us to experience true nature of existence, happiness, peace, love, equality, freedom and more.
