Indian ways of discovering  the inner self 

There is a lot of energy that the universe has given every human being. But we do not use it fully and often we are acquiring more negative feelings than positive ones.

We all are mentally trained to put on a special mask when dealing with other people and we have a totally different mask to cover our actual inner self, which all of us hide and usually not show to the world. In an attempt to hide our true self, we tend to forget what our real self really is.

This inner self is our real sense of identity and if we lose it, means, we have lost ourselves. This loss is usually a result of negative attributes that we have adapted over time and conditioning. Because of this, we need to uncover and find this inner self again and free it.

Our outer and inner self

Another thing that haunts most of us all the time is the thinking of our future. That is the fear of what will happen tomorrow? This grows aggressiveness and compulsiveness and when it shows up it may be at the cost of relationships and happiness of others.

No matter what happens, our inner and outer selves are interlinked. What we experience in the outer world affects our perspective, actions, and vice-versa. Religion is another thing that takes us away from reality. It defines the norms of life and demarcates everything with the attitude of sinful and virtuous deeds.

We have to reach out to our hidden selves, we have got to beat all these obstacles and think about new ways of life. Looking inside our selves helps us in rejecting this confusion and see things more clearly. People who find themselves are extra calm, meditative, and quiet people and do not face such problems of confusion or mistrust. They understand the methods of life and act accordingly.
