Real change and realization cannot just come from being intellectual, but that realization has to come from the depth of the heart.  The head can rationalize, but the feelings deep inside that something is or is not right, that is our intuition and it is usually our most accurate guide.  Deep change can only occur when we feel the need to change from inside out, and not just from the outside in.

For example, everyone knows that smoking kills.  Every time someone buys a box of cigarettes it says so very clearly on it – ‘Smoking is bad for your health.’  There is a story of a man who continued to smoke even though his doctor was telling him it would kill him.  In the end what made him give up smoking was the desperate appeal from his small daughter, who said one day: ‘Daddy, I don’t want you to die’.  That child’s plea had managed to touch his heart, even when logic could not.

Another example is that we stay stuck in toxic relationships, never admitting the pain we are causing to ourselves.  We stay there because our lack of self-worth tells us it’s better to belong than be alone, even if staying there is painful.  But it is only when our internal sense of self-respect gives us the feeling that, ‘I deserve better’, that things can start to change.  Then I realize the pain I am causing to myself, and I decide to change the rules of the game.

When I understand how the sorrow and trappings of my attachment, anger, greed, lust or any other negative traits cause not only to my own soul, but to those around me, it is then I may begin to care enough to make a difference.

Time plays a big part in our ability to change.  But if someone advised us, informed us, lectured us on any self-management topic, still, at the end, we have to feel the need to change ourself before anything will happen.
