We are often socialised to see self and other as a binary – as two separate entities. This meditation helps us release ourselves from the grasp of this self / other binary. It helps us connect with our vision and capacity to advance the dreams that we have for ourselves AND the dreams that we have for others. We can and shall do both.
In the self-help industry we often hear quotes about the importance of prioritising our own needs, in metaphorically putting on our own oxygen mask first, on creating success and self-fulfillment for ourselves and then serving others from the overflow.
These quotes arguably promote the self / other binary and paint a picture whereby one must put themselves first and will not be able to be of use to others unless they do so.
But what if this wasn’t true? What if you could do and be both?
What if you could deeply care for yourself and for others too?
What if you could bring to life the dreams that you have for yourself, for your loved ones, and for the lifestyle you desire – while also bringing to life the dreams that you have for the collective, for others, for a more just world?
I wonder what that might look and feel like?
This meditation will help you find out.
