How can we be sure that we’re receiving truth from our inner self?.

Quote.

When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.

Question:

“First of all, I would like to thank you for sharing your incredible wisdom. 

The 21-Day Meditation has literally changed my life, now I understand why meditation is essential for our spirit to expand. 

I am so grateful and proud of myself, that I grew to receive such powerful knowledge at the age of 23. 

Your meditation came to me so naturally, without a need for any self-discipline or force. 

I’m in the middle of my spiritual transformation because recently I discovered how I would want to live my life. 

I was struggling with depression and some eating disorders during my veterinary studies. 

I had a moment when I was so lost and tired of being sick that I was ready to give up on everything. 

As a child I always knew what I wanted, I was stubborn, self-confident, and my family didn’t like that I always made things “my own way.” 

Then I lost my inner voice, somehow I wanted to make others happy. 

To make things short, my question is about our inner wisdom. 

During my transformation, I can feel there is still a big part of me – my old self – which is not who I truly am.

 Right now I am standing at a crossroads and I am not sure which path to choose. 

How would I know if the answer I am receiving right now is from my true self?

I don’t want to force myself to do anything, for many years I was living a very stressful life and I did terrible things to my health. 

Lately, I’ve been receiving some signals from my body and I am not sure how to interpret them. 

On the other hand, I know that our brain protects itself from changes. 

What would you advise me, dear Deepak?”

Response:

Your true self is not the “I” that serves the interests and needs of the individual mind and body. 

The separate self is the path of doing things “my own way.”  

It is stubborn and selfish, and you have recognized that is not who you truly are. 

Then you said you lost that inner voice and began focusing on making others happy. 

That is to step out of the separate self to something more expanded and compassionate. 

But it also is not your true self. 

When you are established in your true self, you can act for others or for your individual interests, but you never lose your self. 

Your awareness always remains easily in your center or core nature. 

This self-awareness is the only path you need to follow.

Love,

Deepak
