Do you know who you are? That is a question that many still ask even at
the age of sixty. Do you know what you see when you look at yourself? Do
you know what you are, does it matter to you? Are you just in the world
going along from day today, never giving it a thought. You get up,
shower, coffee, dress, and go about your day.
Who are you? Is anything getting to you? Are you in love? Do you know
what love is? Are you mad, weeping for no reason? Do you love the feel
of the sun rays hitting you, as you walk? Do the clouds do anything for
you when you look up?
Do you look up; do you know that the clouds are
there? Have you given any thought to life, how do you know who you are,
how do I find out? Do you know your age, your real age? Do you have a
obligation is to give meaning to life, and in doing so to overcome the
passive, indifferent life.-Elie
Find a place for you and rest in it. In your room, office, park, a place
that is calm, a thinking place, but not thinking. Do you pray, do you
know how to pray, do you know who to pray to, is it a form, or a moving
being? Does it shine, talk who or what do you pray to? When did it
start, how long has this thing called pray gone on in your life?
minute, a day, an hour, weeks, months, years, again who do you pray to?
Do you know who God is? Where He came from, how long He has been here,
what is this thing or person called God? Have you read anything about
Him, do you think itís true or you have given it no thought? In this
quiet place that you have made for yourself, position yourself on your
knees that are your start.
Start talking to God, just talk, He hears you, let it all go, everything
that you feel, and whatever everything that is in you, tell God. He
already knows it before you say it, there is no need to lie. You can
tell Him the truth; He takes you as you are. How does it feel? What am I
suppose to feel? You won't know until it happens.
As time goes on, and
it is not over night, it takes years, to be free, from self, completely free. Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else
expects of you. Never excuse yourself. Never pity yourself. Be a hard
master to yourself and be lenient to everybody else.
