As I was thinking about “What Works” (Props to Sainbury) I began to think about “What doesn’t Work” and I realized, I couldn’t think of anything.

I came to the understanding that I have preferences. There are things that I like and there are things that I don’t like but ultimately it makes no difference.

What I don’t like works just as well as what I do like.

Can anyone relate to this experience?

I can relate to the opposite of this experience: nothing works. That's because I'm in ego.

Self awareness is the first step. Without awareness of self you can’t really be aware of anything else.

If you believe that you are in ego and you don’t prefer it, that awareness will allow you to change it if that is what you want. Without self awareness there is nothing you can change.

Congratulations! You are on the path to self mastery, and a better life for you and for others if you choose it to be so. :)
