My book Don’t Go Abroad, Go Within is a practical application of the principle that examining your thoughts will give you a greater awareness and control over your life. It shows how to get out of the tunnel by taking you in it. Dare to know what you really think and feel and you will gain in mind clarity and happiness. This is the most important step you can take to know how much you are in control of your destiny – can you really separate yourself from the past? The transformation that is required to advance is not going to be painless: going through your beliefs, revealing their vacuity and their delusional essence, it is painful but the reward is unique: you will come out of your shell, you will step out of the self-made prison. This is the way to discover abundance inside and outside yourself – your generosity derives from opening your mind to other dimensions and giving to the Earth what you receive from the stars.
The elaboration of your past can only be done in your mind. In so doing, you gain a new positive and energetic outlook. When your conflicting ideas remain inside yourself, when your troubled emotions are pressed down to the remotest part of your mind, you are building a lake of troubled water which exerts a strong and unrecognized pressure on your stability. Remaining attached to the past as if it was better than the present is stopping you from being realistic and true about what matters, that is to say, where you are now.
This way is not for faint hearts simply because their immediate and easy reaction is to run away from the void, from the folly which is lurking in the mind of those who cannot accept the inner reality. There are also external factors, individuals, conventions, habits, etc. which will use their power to keep you away from the awareness you need to reach in order to move on.
The rational dialogue will come to your help. In fact, observation is not enough, neither is overthinking. The effective path is that of the guided and dialectical dialogue which you can start with someone who is trained to take you by hand and keep you on the track of the self-discovery. Even then, you realize that you are the one upon which the task of making this journey hangs; you need to travel by yourself within your mind, inside your heart, within your soul. It is a journey that nobody can do for you.
In my book I have tried to objectify this inner expedition which has helped me to give my own contribution to my destiny. By sharing this with my readers I hope that they will find that sparkle which will start the transformation they want and need. Have a great day.
