An Awake Human Being
The natural expression of an Awake Human Being is compassion, empathy, tolerance, understanding and selflessness. They are dynamic, creative people with strong will and ability to become focused and one pointed in their vision. Able to hear and then adapt to the needs of their present reality. Remaining relaxed and focused in the midst of change and stress, they find ways to thrive in any space. Striving to understand the impersonal nature of the universe and act in alignment with the natural order and flow of nature. Seekers, constantly striving to understand themselves and life. Understanding that the more they discover, the less they actually know. Many times they get all of the above wrong, make mistakes, err as humans, yet learning. Each failure a stepping stone to success. Continuing on the Path.
