    Dear Terrence, there is lots of wisdom in these verses.
    Knowing ourselves is really the beginning.
    However it seems for me a never ending process.
    Sometimes I think I know myself, I set out my own priniciples
    Principles I love, I want to live by, but then so often I fail.
    Why do we fail? Which part of us fails, which part of us set the principles?
    I think I can really experience my soul. Am I my soul
    Is my soul owning my mind and heart and body?
    Why does it not take the lead full time?
    My mind and heart have to search it so intensely to put my big ego aside.
    I hae kept a thoughs book. Somehow thoughts come from our mind, from our heart and our soul.
    And yest also our ego.
    Whenever I read my thoughts of the past, I feel like getting to know myself a bit better.
    Perhaps my comment is getting too long
    This is an excellent thorught provoking poem. (Report) Reply
