Human design - Discover the person you were born to be
How much do I want to read more? 7/10
I'm not sure if I should believe such a "system" that promise to unveil the "real you". I shall read, and take what reasonate with me.
I like the way it says it's not about visualization, thinking positively and setting goals. But about revealing what's within, like a toolbox within ourselves.
I'm sure intrigued to read what this system is all about. I don't expect much, I just want to read and see.
It actually all depends on your birthdate and what time you're born. And it relies on a Windows program to deliver your "chart".
I dedicate this book to Osho, with gratefulness.
“Nothing is good. Nothing is bad. When this dawns in your consciousness, suddenly you are together, all fragments have disappeared into one unity. You are crystallized, you are centered. This is one of the greatest contributions of Eastern consciousness to the world.”
Your True Self - Margaret I. Jang
Within the sanctity of your inner being,
is your true self, a part that remains unseen.
A quietness, surrounded by joy and peace,
filled with calmness, hidden until you seek.
It’s uncluttered by your future or your past,
only the “now,” the “present,” is what lasts.
Your true self is eternal and must grow
to new heights, your soul already knows.
For you to reach this sacred state of mind,
release ego and the poisons that it finds.
Then surrender; trust in what you truly feel,
but be aware to what is and isn’t real.
Integrity will guide you on your quest,
let truth prevail to help you act your best.
If you can overcome the need to prove or win,
then you will find your true self deep within.
And when united with your inner self,
you will find there is no greater wealth.
Eternity is real and so very divine,
once your true self reveals itself to shine!
FOREWORD - Becky Robbins
this stranger with friendly eyes and a velvet voice started to “read” my “design for life” as if he had known me since the day I was born.
reading my true nature and resonating with every instinct, emotion, thought, and sensation I had ever felt.
It unlocked an inner code I’d never encountered in other disciplines, a code I could apply to my way of being, my decision making, and my clarity about what and how I thought and felt.
“Awakening the Giant Within” was ripe for its time. Likewise, Human Design is ripe for today’s world and brings the same potential for self-empowerment. It is a journey of self-discovery that can, and should, be taken and applied to the family and community.
how many of us know what being ourselves actually means? Who is this “true self — the private inner being that hides behind the mask. That real person we are when stripped of our ego and acts of social graces aimed at winning respect, approval, or popularity?
millions of people pass through life without ever realizing what constitutes their true self.
It’s as though we have forgotten our unique individuality in the collective rush to be all things to all people, to fit the picture-perfect portrayals in magazines, television dramas, and movies.
It’s as though the naturalness and authenticity with which we were all born — and which we unleashed with unaffected abandon as children — have been crushed, repressed, or even disallowed.
conformity and responsibility in adulthood have combined to distort or shrink our true natures.
Millions of us parade as someone other than our true selves without even realizing it, adopting an “acting personality” shaped by the conditioning of our pasts and the judgments, expectations, and rules of others.
there’s always a tendency to act as we believe we should act, or how we’ve been trained to act, keeping our inner beings bound.
"All I want is to be myself again, act like myself again, feel like myself again. I don’t want to be this person I’ve created and become. I know the real me is different, waiting to get out and be braver, less afraid of being hurt, less worried about the judgments of others, less afraid of taking on the world, desperate to laugh and dance again. She’s in there. I know she is. But I’ve no idea where to look anymore. I need to be reminded of the me that has become lost."
In writing this book I hope to bring you back home to the essence and safe harbor of your inner being, reuniting you with the person you were born to be and the life you were meant to live.
That’s why this is not a self-help book but a self-reminder, directing you to rediscover the essence and uniqueness of the real you.
to act on by altering the way you view yourself and approach interactions with others.
In the words of educator Stedman Graham: “When you have a sense of who you are and a vision of where you’re going in life, you then have the basis of reaching out to the world, and going after your dreams for a better life.”

I soon found myself driving a Magic Bus on the hippie trail to India, a place that ultimately became my home for five years. I was introduced to the ashram of Osho, an enlightened master who at the time was known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh.
One guidance Osho offered was that if people had really personal questions about themselves, they should visit a “shadow reader” in Bombay.
Among many things, he predicted that my personal awakening would happen later in life. I would be introduced to a system, would master it and then teach it.
His advice was that I should experiment with reading for people to learn the skills of interaction while imparting personal and important information relevant to their lives.
your Human Design. It is a document that represents your blueprint for life — a blueprint of your personality. Once you’ve become acquainted with this information, you will know whether the life you’re living fits with your design.
There is no asking, visualizing, or positive thinking required, because its truth already exists within us.
"I realize that I was being someone else for too long. I see now that everything I was doing was contrary to my Human Design. But the moment my true nature was seen and appreciated, I felt alive again. I’ve used the tools you gave me, and it feels as if this system has provided the key which has unlocked my true self."
- your intrinsic nature and what makes you tick.
- the sorts of people you “click” with and the kinds of environments that bring out your best.
- It reveals your true self’s underlying nature, preferences, personality traits, strengths, weaknesses, abilities, dynamics, and built-in chemistry.
- It reminds you of the needs and feelings you’re either celebrating or resisting.
- It explains how you can make decisions that foster happiness and fulfillment.
prepare for an intimate odyssey whose final destination is a true understanding of the person you were designed to be. Prepare to meet the real you.

The Life Chart
Human Design is ripe for these changing times, encouraging us to meet ourselves head-on and be responsible for who we are.
It uses data to determine your exact placement in time and space relative to the solar system and star fields around you at the precise moment of birth. But whereas in astrology the sky is divided into twelve compartments (the signs of the zodiac), Human Design divides it into sixty-four.
