“I will not shirk my responsibility to look deeply into myself.

Ego would prefer that I not look directly into my deeper self, for there I would learn things bound to free me from its bondage. I would learn of the endless beauty that lies beyond the writhing of my personal self. I would learn that beyond my torment lies the glory of my soul.

Today, I choose a conscious life. I will ask myself when something has not turned out well, “What did I do or not do that helped cause this to happen?” Only then will it be revealed to me the source of my pain. I will be healed as I am willing to look honestly at myself.

Dear God,

Send angels to accompany me

On my path to self-awareness.

May embarrassment not deter me

From looking at the truth of how I behave,

For only when I see my patterns

Will I be able to change them.

Please take from me the shadows that would hide Your light in me.
