Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we’re so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is the supreme creative act. ~ Ram Dass
What does it mean to go within? This question is on the mind of most people who are awakening to the multidimensionality of this reality. Many people have different experiences but there is one similar thread that all people need to know about.
The meaning of going within
The term “going within” is the method by which we discover who we truly are.
To go within simply means to be with yourself, to listen to yourself and your higher self, and to feel yourself by calming the mind and clearing the clutter; allowing more space for your higher thoughts to enter your being.
~ Michelle Walling
How do I go within?
Going within has been tied to the term meditation, and while this is an excellent way of doing this, there are also other ways that may not be actually termed “meditation”. Most times we go within without realizing it when we are:
- Driving (happens naturally but not the best time to remove your focus!)
- Lying in bed before going to sleep and when we wake up
- Sitting in nature
- Singing, painting, writing, playing music, etc.
- Washing dishes, mowing the yard, gardening, or doing a repetitive task
- Taking a shower or bath
- Watching TV
If you think about what your mind does while doing one of these tasks, you will realize what it means to go within. It feels like you are removing the focus from the outside world and going off on a little trip inside, right before you catch yourself and bring yourself back into the moment of the task at hand.
