Dynamic in Nature: Development of Self Voice and Mind

Oct 17, 2007
The way we perceive ourselves is dynamic in nature and is a continuous system. This is synonymous with the relationship between a compass and its true north direction. Our self-concept always points us towards steady points of dependability that we adhere to strictly. These points are points that shape our views. These views are not only limited to views of ourselves but also of the world and others. These views will lead us to action and make us take steady stances in life.

The dynamic nature of the way we perceive ourselves is not only the cause of our behaviours but also the reason for our consistency and direction in life and in our personality and behaviours. The steady points that we are always focused on are a part of the past strong points that we developed in our selves. In order for us to further, develop we need to focus on further developing our self and inner voice and to redirect our attention to new concepts and ideas of ourselves.

This is a continuous process that is never ending and that leads to the development and assimilation of new ideas and concepts as well as the expulsion of ideas that become dated. This process ensures renewal and progress in life as it enables changes in patterns and self-concepts through life to meet the circumstances that we encounter in the world. This part of self-development is perhaps the hardest as it is most difficult to produce changes in our attitudes and personalities. However, although hard to accomplish this may also be the most rewarding part of growth and development of self.

We as individuals always strive to be in keeping with our core concepts. This means that even though these concepts may not be for our best interest and that they may hurt use and others we are tempted to stick to them. This is a part of life and self that we have to confront head on and deal with, as without change we will be halted in our personal development. In order to grow in self and voice we must be prepared to face all our demons and set them aside and start fresh.

We have to change the beliefs that we have gained due to past hurts and experiences in order to open the doors to new experiences. This is vital in the line that takes us to success and growth in life and relationships. Many a time due to past hurts we are tempted to close ourselves off to love and meaningful relationships and this is a mistake because we could be missing some of the best experiences of life.

In some extreme cases, we also go so far to resist change that we defy our bodies. The physical body is sacrificed by the need to maintain a self-conceptualization. This is not only a bad practice but this could lead to dire results in our health and fitness. Emotional satisfaction is great but not at the cost of discomfort to the body or more serious harm. It is essential that the body be maintained in a healthy state and as we develop in self and inner voice, we will grow in awareness for our bodies and its needs.

We will always guard in our concept of self from any shame or feeling of inadequacy and this can often lead to an emotion known as pride. If we are too prideful then we often miss out in a lot.

Sometimes when we are angry with someone and they approach us we will push them away just for prides sake even though we want them close. This spite has dire consequences and we have to learn to control our inner instincts and direct our emotions to a positive attitude. Exploration into change and development of self and voice is necessary to achieve this balance.
