The truth about ourselves



Photo : Anna O, Started to blossom in my box



"Something happens when we face the truth about ourselves.

For one thing,
 
there is no room for pomposity, arrogance, or self-absorption.

More than one person has pointed out
how closely conjoined "humility" is with "humor."
A sense of humor, like a true sense of humility,
involves ruthless honesty about who we are,
without disguise or pretense.

The temptation, of course,
is to become weighted with gravity,
and to take ourselves very seriously indeed.

The point is that the opposite route is the direct one.
The truth of the matter is that we are
singularly gifted in avoiding self-discovery,
even though we pay lip service to it.

Impressed with our self-importance and weighted
with the seriousness of the adventure of self-discovery,
we are sitting ducks for missing the meaning of what is going on."

  1. We are taught to leave "self" behind, because it's , well ... "selfish" ... I followed that advice to a T for many years and was there for others all the time ... over and over again ... now (finally age 60) I am starting to realize, that enjoying myself is NOT a sin, no matter what people expect me to do and think ... because this is MY life ... yes, Eva? Love U, cat.
