A super-condensed version of my story:
I was silently working on my career. Not really wanting anything different. It's funny, I'm not sure if the term is "woke" or "awaken", however; I became conscious of a burning need to be more. I can't really explain why, maybe it's related to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. I had climbed Maslow's metaphorical pyramid, and what I found wasn't self-actualization, but rather, more questions. Is this it? Why are we here? Who am I?
To make a long story short, I am currently exploring the fundamentals of our reality. I am exploring our human consciousness, through the lens of curiosity. No matter the subject, or modality, I am keeping an open mind and following my heart, in seeking out my truths in this complex Universe. I am not enlightened, nor self-actualized, but rather self-motivated to become my Superior Self. Self-growth is not linear, in that it fits a perfect representation of an upward trend over time, rather it's curvilinear, in that we slowly trek up the mountain of truth, oftentimes getting lost, but finding our way back on our paths, and learning from those experiences.
Life is not about how much you obtain, it's about how much you learn.
