To Thine Own Self Be True

Everyone one day will find their True Self, the One we all have searched for. As is read: To Thine Own Self Be True. Going through the trials and tribulations, joys and happiness that are all part of each expression in the classroom of life.

Not for Me Anymore

It might not be your way
But it is my way

It might not be your thought
But it is mine

It might not be your expression
But it is mine

For many years
It takes
To find out who we are

Walking down many paths
Meeting many people
Listening to varied points of view
Especially the gods of opinion
As they rear their ugly heads

Not for me anymore
No matter what the scorn
Or judgements placed
From others
For I care not

Many lifetimes it has taken
To find my True Self
To Mine Own Self be True
And manifest it in the world

It pleaseth not many
Yet it inspires too
For the Truth of our Beingness
Always shines through

'Tis only those whose jealousy
And need to drag down
Will not see the glory that surrounds
Those who Light shines forth
Through words and actions
And just Being


Being True, Expression, Feelings, Knowing Yourself, My Way, Own Self, Thoughts, Worthiness, Your Way

I was just having a chat with a friend I have not seen (in person) for 13 years and we were discussing life after 40. Yes, we are both 48 and we met when we were 19. To see us both now, there is such a difference in us both. We both have confidence, which we were lacking in our youth. As our convo went on, I found we both are not only confident in what we are inside and outside, we are okay if other do not feel the same about us, it is okay. If someone shows jealousy because you know who you are then, that person has not yet gotten to that level in their life. Hopefully they will one day, if not, their loss. Nice one. Thank you for sharing.:)

Loved this Carolan! I so agree with it too. As Denise says, it is only as we mature that we really know ourselves and then like who we are, and where we belong in the world. Lifetimes or just this life, it is all a journey of constant discovery..
