7 Steps for Discovering Your Host Nature

  • Ego will help you to recognize, remove, and replace your ego: a.k.a. self-esteem.

“Do not allow yourself to suppress your thoughts. Instead, let the thoughts come before you and become a sort of observer. Start observing your mind. Don’t try to escape, do not be afraid of your thinking.” —Swami Rama

“Thirty spokes connect to the wheel’s hub; yet, it is the center hole that makes it useful. Clay is shaped into a vessel; yet, it is the emptiness within that makes it useful. Doors and windows are cut for a room; yet it is the space where there is nothing that makes it useful. Therefore, though advantage comes from  what is; usefulness comes from what is not.” —Lao Tzu

“To find yourself, think for yourself.” —Socrates

SIXTH STEP

  • Rest and wait upon God to take care of your inner world.
