Each one of us has an inner compass which is part of the natural arrangement of the human design – we naturally and intuitively know where we want to go, and what is right and not right for us to be doing.
Do you ever find yourself asking: What is my true natural inclination? What do I really, really want? Why am I doing what I am doing? What does ‘ fulfillment’ mean to me? Because many of us do, and for a good reason.
The 21st century is an unrelentingly fast paced, intensely busy with itself environment, with countless influences and persuasions that constantly invade the minds of its citizens. The world around us needs us to be something for it, and that something may not always match, often conflicting with what we are and our sense of purpose.
So, it is easy for one’s natural compass to become disoriented and confused inside of the white noise intensity in one’s head, to the point of losing connection with it, or just feeling a feint inner whisper that gets overlaid by today’s screaming headlines.
One of the prime tasks of developing self-leadership is for a person to restore connection to their inner compass, bring it to life, and learn how to use it to guide oneself – and when needed, others – in the demanding task of navigating the maze of modern living.
To restore and fine-tune the inner compass, we need to rediscover what we really want and summon the courage to break away from the clutch of our yesterdays by creating in oneself the space to think anew about… everything important. The ‘what do you want’ question is not one to solve once and for all, because humans are still evolving, in tiny steps every day, thereby presenting new self-awareness and self-realisation opportunities that defy self-fixing, at least in those who are on this journey.
A compass points to the Earth’s magnetic north. What nature of power ‘magnetises’ the inner compass of a human being? This opens up a profound searching process that is concerned with the universal evolutionary signal, the tune that inspires the dance of living and responding, each person and their unique way and style.
