Know Thyself


It’s an ancient Greek command in philosophy: Know Thyself.

Do you know who you really are?  What are your strengths and weaknesses?  What are you greatest joys and fears?  Where did you come from?  Where are you going?  Why are you here?

I’m not actually asking you to answer those questions here on this blog, but what I am curious about – how do you go about doing this?

I tend to think everyone does this, to an extent.  So how do you know yourself?

Reading, writing, prayer, meditation?

More importantly: how do you know if the answer(s) you find are true?
