Forget About Your Journey
What About Mine?
If You Can Allow Yourself To Believe:
- Life is a gift; each and every day
- You must be true to yourself
- One should participate in reality
Then We Can Agree:
- Each and every gift deserves respect
- Our greatest pursuit is in knowledge of self
- It is through life - living - participation with our reality in which we discover and represent our infinitely unique self
“To Thine Self Be True”
To seek out and discover one’s self is the purest virtue of individuality. Each and every one of us should constantly strive and continue to do so.
This path marches an infinite cycle leading to the complete and absolute loss of the bounds between self and surrounding.
Before we get ahead of ourselves though, let us focus on the process of self discovery.
The Storification of Self
How we know who we are and what we do is not so - well… known.
- Look: With empathy for your peers and environment
- Listen: Rather than distort and misdefine yourself through storification and narrative
- Observe: What can you collect and put together that informs your immediate reality about who you are
Choosing Self & Free Will
If Self is to be discovered, where is choice?
And what about free will?
Surely we make significant and character defining decisions throughout our lives that have to do with who we are; However:
- The decision process as we understand it ourselves is a near complete illusion
- A story we make up to tell ourselves about who we are.

The Pursuit of Discovering One’s Self
To consciously choose and set out on Self discovery is a journey of all times. The Tale of old, Folk, Nursery Rhymes and others all share such quests. Calming the fire and lava outside by calming the storm within. All of which require the hero to undergo serious acts of valor in order to put to use such an important claim to Self-knowledge.
Be Self: Participate in Reality
Invest in that which you wish to invest in You
In order to receive the blessing of and hear from the Universe, one must participate in reality. In the reality they desire to invest in and be invested in.

Something to chew on, a metaphor to ponder, epitaph to meditate on.
The greatest mind of our time have put their 2 cents in the game of Self, Discovery, Participation.
And all in the attempt of transporting an essence of wisdom to guide thyself.
Our ability to choose is often confused. Our ability to make choices is often affect by our the environment, our experience, and our biochemistry; the shape of our brain
If there is free will it is in all the boring places and those places are getting more and more cramped ... In reality I don't think there is any freewill at all
There is but one truly serious philosophical problem and that is suicide
