Knowing Your Beliefs
Your system of values could take on greater importance for you today. Perhaps because you recognize that the ways in which you live your life can have a direct impact on your relationships with others and with yourself, you may wish to understand your morals and their foundations more deeply. Reflecting upon what is the most important thing for you, and then examining the beliefs that underlie this, could bring you to a deeper understanding of your life. As you think about these issues, you may wish to ask yourself how these beliefs influence your life at present. For example, you may ask whether or not you are living your life based on your deepest convictions. You may find that this inquiry could bring you not only to a greater level of awareness about yourself, but might also stimulate you to live more closely aligned with your core values.
Knowing the values by which we live enables us to live our truth. When we consider what has the greatest bearing for us in our lives, we start the process of returning to the deepest part of ourselves – the part that is not influenced by the values and beliefs of others. Becoming more aware of what values are at our own cores lets us see the beliefs that are truly at the heart of our being and drive our actions in a more truthful and honorable way. Understanding what your values are will make it easier for you to live with integrity and honesty today.
