In search of myself

I think , if we look closely at our real self, we might discover horrible truths about ourselves and by acknowledging them, we might know who we are.

In search of myself

I have started questioning every action I do, if not every thought I think. When I do a particular thing or want to do a particular thing, I ask myself why I want to do it ? What is my motive? It helps me understand myself. I have also started looking myself in the mirror of relationships. And take my word, its so dreadful. Because most of the times, I come to the conclusion that I am selfish, thinking of my own comfort, taking advantage of others to my own benefit. I have realized that I think highly of myself, though I am guided by desire to fulfill my own greed. I see anger, envy, jealousy and violence in myself. I feel the deep urge to hurt the one who hurts me or might hurt me...etc....etc. I find that there very little love in my life and lots of sorrow which is self created. And I find it rather funny that I am always caught in the trap I make for myself and then feel frustrated. I can see my insecurities and my habit of living a stupid and dull life.
I am in search of myself and I would love to share my findings with you.

Deep article! We are good and evil and we must embrace our nature. We cannot be either positive, or only negative, as if we try it, we will see that life will try to balance the situation. Good luck in your search!

Your search within you will lead to the discovery of the real "I" that exists in every creature, and that is the ultimate truth.
