Did you know that most people are a stranger to themselves? I didn’t know it was possible to get to know myself better until I visited Egypt and spent a lot of time at the pyramids and temples. Egypt gave me a much greater perspective on life. It helped me to understand one of the key differences between how the ancient Egyptians perceived the world, and modern western civilisation. In short, they worked with nature and looked at much longer time scales, perhaps thinking about their grandchildren or great-grandchildren and even beyond them. What we know is, some of the temples were designed and built over the span of hundreds of years.
Getting to know oneself better is a beautiful journey, the central point I would like you to think about is, YOU CAN get to know yourself better. Getting to know oneself is a multi-faceted area, we can look at a few key areas. Please have in mind, my short list is far from all encompassing. Let’s start with how you treat yourself.
