It underpins everything

Knowing ourselves is our most overlooked ability.

Today the advice section in our local book store overflows and talk shows have more experts than topics.

Since Stephen Covey gave us the 7 Habits of highly successful people, we have advice lists covering all our possible needs. From spiritual success to power, money and any other topic we can think of, someone has advice for us.

The one area where advice doesn’t count, and all we have is ourselves, is our awareness. Advice means nothing if we don’t know ourselves.

A life filled with advice and little awareness is like a house built on a weak foundation.

Sitting silently within ourselves, our awareness or lack of it, can be our greatest asset or our Achilles heel.

No advice can replace awareness
