Conscious living ~ To be aware of one's own existence, sensations, thoughts, surroundings and choices
Who am I? What brings me joy? How do I find connection with others that is mutually satisfying?
These may be questions often asked, and usually difficult to answer with full and authentic honesty. Instead, we opt to conform: to do what we think is right and be the kind of person we believe will be most accepted by our community.
Carl Jung wrote extensively about the process of individuation, which, in short, is the layered process of finding your true, authentic self. In a nutshell, individuation is when you recognize and acknowledge your persona (the personality that you present to the world) and integrate it with the contents of your unconscious mind, including your shadow (the disowned and hidden part of you that exists in the background of your everyday life). By connecting to your inner voice — your authentic self — you become conscious and aware of your true vocation. This is the journey toward the person you are meant to be... this is your journey to wholeness.
But how do we get there?
We have spent decades layering on the defenses that keep us stuck in our persona masks as we push away from the unconscious. However, at some point the unconscious will bleed through, and cross the boundary into consciousness. This is usually the point when we notice that we are trying to find ways to “numb out” or we have outburst or find certain levels of anxiety or depression waving in and out of our weeks. This is a True calling from your deepest, purest Self to Wake Up and Discover the Joy and Enthusiasm for your Unique Path and service to your community.
At Chattanooga School for Conscious Living, we offer several avenues for you to access and understand your True Self and through that, potentially find the most rewarding personal and professional path you are meant to live.
“At various points in our lives, or on a quest, and for reasons that often remain obscure, we are driven to make decisions which prove with hindsight to be loaded with meaning. (225)”
― Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras
The way we become more conscious is by looking inward and also reaching outward for authentic conscious connection. This is a step towards positive change in the world.
