find yourself

“People often say that this or that person has not found himself.  But the self is not something one finds.  It is something that one creates.”

  1. I totally disagree. Man’s problem is ignorance of his true self. Spiritual paths lead him to dis – covering the ignorance and finding the true self.

  2. Interesting point – do we find or do we create the self?

    The self is maleable, formable like clay, but to what degree? The self is plastic so there is some ability to create and change the self. The self is also something that must be discovered as well.
