My thoughts are never far away from my unconscious thinking. But introspection isn’t a one minute wonder. It’s something that must be honed.
We know what introspection is but why should we use it? We should use it because without the examination or observation of our own emotional and mental processes, we will never grow. We will never learn to look within or observe ourselves.
Without introspection, we will never know what it means to contemplate, what it means to ponder, to reflect, nor what it is to be thoughtful, we will never know meditation or how to use reflection.
Introspection can be used at any time, it’s easy to do and doesn’t take a lot of effort. To get started we just need to sit and focus on one particular thing. Quiet introspection can be extremely valuable.
Introspection helps us think about our lives, our experiences and what certain things mean. It allows us to think about our lives more, and if used frequently, we will begin to hear the little voice inside our head, talk back at us.
Introspection allows us to re-visit our experiences so that we understand our lives and experiences. It allows us to deal with our issues and that enables change.
