Welcome to Notes To Self.
This is a collection of personal notes from my “more conscious self” – my Higher Self – to my “mundane self” – my ego. Both are part of us, and it’s up to us to listen to our Higher Selves or keep navigating the world through the lenses of our egos.
I started with the very first Note To Self during a time where my ego couldn’t handle its reality anymore. I felt lost and uninspired, and I ended up deleting everything on this blog in December 2017. The inspired version of me that felt aligned with Life wasn’t there anymore. I couldn’t resonate with the version of me that created the previous content on this blog.
During that period, I felt like a hypocrite because there I was, telling the readers what to do with their lives while I realized that I didn’t even know what I was doing with mine. I wanted to be a teacher, but I wasn’t ready. The writings were well-intended, and were coming out of a place of love. Underneath that, however, there was also an unconscious belief that I knew better. I thought I had it all figured out just to find out some time later that everything I thought I knew would teach me what I had yet to learn. It’s quite amazing the ways that Life can teach us lessons. Some of these lessons can break our whole egoic structure of who think we are so we can become who we wish to truly be.
I got to a point where I just wanted to be more authentic, and come from this place of authenticity. No more pretending to myself or the world that I have it all figured out, because obviously I didn’t. I did not want to “teach” anyone anything anymore as I realized that there is nothing to teach. We are each living our own lives. There is no best way of living this life. And so, I felt like sharing my life, my knowledge, wisdom, and experiences without the need to teach anyone anything. I felt like coming out of a place of a humility and authenticity.
And that is how the Notes To Self came to exist: trying to find inspiration for myself, wanting to create content, and without the need to tell people how to live, but rather share what I learn.
These Notes are intended to remind me and advise me (me referring to the ego Juneal; the created identity living in human form) of that which I may forget while handling my day-to-day activities.
It is my intention to help and inspire. In the process of constantly inventing myself, renewing my paradigms, and understanding more, I hope to serve as a source of inspiration to you, hence this blog. May these Notes To Self remind you that all the answers are within. Know that there is wisdom within each of us. Just tune into your Higher Self to hear what your bigger-, more mature- Self has to say.
And do remember… The life you are living is YOURS – and no one can live it better than you do. The life I am living is MINE – and no one can live it better than I do. So, take what you feel can help you and leave the rest.
With Love, Jun.
