Well actually, hidden in this allegory is the secret of how you can attain Self-leadership and Inner Freedom;
Plato introduces the 'Allegory of the Cave', to transmit the idea that most people are not just comfortable in their ignorance, but hostile to anyone who points it out. With the Cave Parable, Plato is warning us, that we are essentially prisoners of our mind, in a deep trance of ego-projections and all sorts of distortions of the truth which cause us to be frustrated, angry, and stressed;
The decisions you will make are less affected by your biases, preconceptions, superstitions and emotions, like chained prisoners re-acting to shadows.
Inner freedom means that instead of re-acting to whatever outer circumstances are coming your way, you have the power to control your thoughts and to manifest the kinds of feelings and experiences that you want, that are based on Truth.
TAKE A MOMENT OF REFLECTION ...
Think of an area in your life where you are under-performing or feeling angry and frustrated…
Then ask yourself: In which circumstances do I typically distort reality, over-react based on these limiting thoughts, and then have regrets because I couldn’t see the situation clearly to begin with? Am I prepared to continue repeating this negative pattern, vicious cycle, or do I want to get coaching/mentoring to transform myself and the situation?What will continue to happen if I don’t get coaching/mentoring/re-training? Am I prepared to live with these consequences, or am I worthy of breaking free from this ‘prison’?
Go back and review this video, and really go through the questions one by one, and take time to answer them. Then, if you are feeling stuck, or you want to process your answers, go ahead and book one of the coaching program with me. www.alkistis.net/programs.html
