Knowledge of self.

Here’s a proverb I just came across and liked:

“He who does not know and does not know that he does not know, is a fool. Shun him.
He who does not know and knows that he does not know, is a child. Teach him.
He who knows and does not know that he knows, is asleep. Wake him.
He who knows and knows that he knows, is wise. Follow him.”

Very wise words if you ask me.

Who Am I?

It assumes greater importance as the years go by

The answer to the fundamental question: “Who Am I?”

Each day, a step further on the road marked “Self-Discovery”

A journey demanding the simplest approach of honesty

At dawn I construct the image of IDEAL ME in my head

And before I lay to sleep I consider how well I have fared

I am a Work-in-progress, laid bare for all to see

My evolving beauty and perfection, in the Redefinition Of Me.
