I have the above words tattooed on me some where. Those words are not exactly meant about bushcraft although they are included in a bushcraft style tattoo. They were meant about being wandering to find yourself, lost in yourself . In who you are.
I think most people spend much of their lives trying to find out who they are, if theyre lucky they have people turn up in their lives as sign posts, to help a person take the path they are meant to be on in life.
Through bushcraft Im finding more self aware people, the same with martial arts. I think if someone had of pointed me towards the links below when I was younger I wouldnt have wasted so much of my life trying to figure things out for myself or being pointed in the wrong direction.
Much of my character people didnt understand and tried to steer me away or to change. Now I realize that was what I was meant to be like.
There is a difference between fixing yourself and changing to suit others. For example; when younger you feel like you have to fit in which I never did. I now realize that I dont have to fit in, I dont need to fit in, I have to fit in. I can fit in any where I like ,if I want to.
I always found it difficult to learn. After discovering I was dyslexic I began to figure out how to learn and began to enjoy the process of learning.
Personality types play a large role in our actions. There are several ways of looking at this Alpha, beta, gamma, omega, delta and sigma. Also the 16 personality types by Meyers Briggs based on favorite world, information, decisions, structure.
“Perception involves all the ways of becoming aware of things, people, happenings, or ideas. Judgment involves all the ways of coming to conclusions about what has been perceived. If people differ systematically in what they perceive and in how they reach conclusions, then it is only reasonable for them to differ correspondingly in their interests, reactions, values, motivations, and skills.”
The theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.
You begin to understand yourself better. See what you think in the links below. I had to put this down after meeting someone that had actually heard of this and had similar traits as to myself and thought life would have been so much easier if i had of seen this when I was younger.
Life may be about a lot of things. I think its about finding yourself and then its about what you do with your knowledge. The only thing truly left of you when yourve left this mortal plane, other than ash is how you have influenced those that have stumbled across the path you have chosen to walk.
