Defining Your Self
When you hear that, “Do you know your self,” what does that mean?

All too often, we mistake others’ thoughts as our own. When you know your true self, that understanding can only come from the bottom of your heart.
What have you really understood in your life? Who are you? What are you? When you hear that, “Do you know your self,” what does that mean? Is it some definition that somebody’s going to plunk in your head? Is it going to be something that somebody sitting or standing behind a podium is going to lecture you on?
It better not be. Because it has to be something you know from the bottom of your heart—who you are—that you were given an opportunity to be alive.
– Prem Rawat
