Who is wise?

He who knows others is learned; he who knows himself is wise.Lao-tzu

Knowledge is key, it’s often said. Seems to me that even before we can understand and know others; be effective in relationships with them, we must know our own selves a great deal.

What does it mean to know thyself?

It can mean several things and at several levels:

  1. Know our hidden motives and agendas. Are we conscious of why we do what we do?
  2. Know what keeps us going; Know our deepest values; what’s most important to us. What makes us happy/sad?
  3. Know how others perceive us and how we impact their lives.
  4. Know our place in this universe.

It’s not a small undertaking; which is why we have an entire life to explore the universe that’s inside us and is us! Bon Voyage!
