Openness and inclinations | Juwon Ogungbe

A new day brings new challenges, both big and small. Openness to learning gives access to insights about coping mechanisms.

There is no need to fall over one’s self, aiming to conform to the ways of others. Awareness of the terrain is helpful for navigating one’s way through experiences, but we also carry our consciousness with us, wherever we go.

One of major lessons of the era we have just lived through is to trust our personal powers of perception as much as possible.

Looking at others going through their processes can be useful up to a point, but the time must arrive for facing up to the stirrings from within.

Listening to those messages is a practice as valuable as any other.
