KNOW YOURSELF

Pythagoras  - man know thyself; then thou shalt know the universe and god

Importance of understanding yourself.


One who looks outside, dreams.

One who looks inside, awakens. 

Jung

The greatest battle takes place in our own minds 


Do you suffer from "illness of thought"?

Some remote communities are more aware of it. The Banda tribe in Uganda calls it "illness of thought" and those affected are allowed time out from the group.

The meeting with oneself is, at first, the meeting with one's own shadow. The shadow is a tight passage, a narrow door, whose painful constriction no one is spared who goes down to the deep well. But one must learn to know oneself in order to know who one is. - Carl G. Jung


Prison of your own making.⁣

Human beings are social animals. What brings us together is love and affection—anger drives us apart. ***Just as we employ physical hygiene to protect our health, we need emotional hygiene, the means to tackle our destructive emotions, if we are to achieve peace of mind. - Dalai Lana

When we are comfortable with ourselves

and have accepted ourselves wholly,

others will also find us approachable and easier to accept us.

     — Haemin Sunim

What we believe to be true is true 

Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.

― Jim Morrison

Each time it becomes conscious of one of its controlling fears, that fear dies, is transmuted into power and a new self is born.

There is no stability or sanity without being master of your own emotional energy. There is no peace and no power without conscious connection to your instinctual self.

I keep thinking people will hate me, but the truth is deep inside its me who hates myself the most.
