I’m glad that you are here with me today. You have been asked to be here because you are interested in learning more about the concepts and practices that we will be discussing today.
The topic of today’s session is “Self-Awareness”. In a nutshell, we are going to talk about how to be aware in the moment and how to be aware of what is happening around you. We are also going to talk about three levels of self-awareness. The first level is “Being Aware” and the second level is “Seeing” and the third level is “Knowing”.
What is Self Awareness? Self-awareness, according to many popular philosophers, is a state of the mind in which we are aware of ourselves as a person and our surroundings and are able to control the actions that we take with our actions. Some people go into this “knowing” mode because they think they know what they are doing more than they actually do.
The third level of self-awareness we talk about here is “Knowing You and Knowing Everything.” It is when you do not allow yourself to be distracted by the thoughts and feelings you don’t want to acknowledge. You are able to focus on the things you need to focus on. It is when you can focus on what is important to you and you do not allow yourself to let it get distracted by what you want to forget about.
Another way to put it is when you are learning to do something new you have to give yourself the time to learn it. The first step is to not be distracted by things like shopping lists, the weather, or other extraneous things that are just distractions.
It can be a bit difficult because people don’t like to admit that they are distracted. Often they see it as an excuse to avoid the task at hand. The truth is that we can all be distracted by what we want to forget. That is what is so scary.
The problem is with just learning something new, you need to give yourself the time to really get into it, and that is what is happening here for Colt. He is learning how to control the power of the visionaries, and he is learning that there is a greater purpose to his existence than just having a party.
Colt’s current goal is to learn to control the power of the visionaries, but that’s only half the battle. He has also learned that they are not on a time loop either. They are moving at various speeds, and they are constantly being killed. That’s enough to make Colt realize that he has to learn to find a way to control time itself.
Colt is also learning that he is not the only survivor who has been on Deathloop. He has met another visionary, and they have a mutual friend who is trapped in the same room with him. They have also learned that they are not alone, and there is hope for them in a new adventure. They also learn that they are all connected, and that they are all in this together because they are all part of a larger plan.
