Confidence: I can too often without myself from acting due to a feeling of not being good enough. I want to learn how to ignore my own limitations and not have myself restrained by my limiting beliefs.
Deep listening: there are certain areas in my life that don't feel 100% well. Either I learn to accept this or I anticipate and change. I feel I walked around with these feelings of doubt for too long, so that they become numb to some extent. Honestly, I don't know what the right answer is, and I believe that there's the solution to my need for growth. Better listening.

|8. Can you frame your philosophy or cosmology of life? What role(s) do humans play in it?|
Life is interconnected, and can not exist in isolation. Therefore, we humans are not alone, separate – rather, we are an integral part of the whole of all life. Consciousness does not start with I think so I exist, but with I see you so I exist. The shared, and grows through the interdependence of things.
I truly believe that it is our core purpose as humans to care, love, and facilitate harmonious ecosystems. Our capacity to adapt, to comprehend, to understand, to empathize are core fundamental competencies in doing so.
