Being awake, present and aware are goals we can all aspire to. But what does living an awakened life actually mean? Clinical psychologist and author Dr. Shefali Tsabary breaks down this complicated idea to its basic parts.
When we live an awakened life, it means choosing not to be defined by the many labels and expectations society has for us, as well as the labels and expectations we hold for ourselves. By shedding our identifying roles we are free to live the utmost expression of ourselves without shame or fear.
To fully let go of these labels and roles assigned to us by society, you must embrace the total emptiness and fullness of being undefinable. Open up your mind to the deepest parts of yourself and let all the chains of labels drift away. When you access that truth that is yourself, you can live a life that is thoroughly and authentically you without regret.
Watch above as Dr. Tsabary explains why finding your awakened self is key to living genuinely and finding total self-acceptance.
Dr. Tsabary specializes in the integration of Eastern philosophy and Western psychology in order to help families implement the concept of conscious parenting to better connect with their children. In her new book, The Awakened Family
, she explores these dynamic relationships between parent and child and explores a new way in parenting, where gender often becomes androgynous and therefore free of gender confinement. This, she says, also creates a generation that is balanced and living as one.
