Do not go by revelation;
Do not go by tradition;
Do not go by hearsay;
Do not go on the authority of sacred texts;
Do not go on the grounds of pure logic;
Do not go by a view that seems rational;
Do not go by reflecting on mere appearances

To conquer oneself is a greater task than conquering others.

What it takes to 'Courage!' ?

Cowardly Lion: Courage! What makes a king out of a slave? Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the "ape" in apricot? What have they got that I ain't got?
Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Woodsman: Courage!
Cowardly Lion: You can say that again! Hunh!
  • Yip Harburg, from the film The Wizard of Oz (1939).

Discover your "self"

In my learned experiance, no discovery is as precious as our own "self". Why? You will find out.
Our actual self is hidden under several 'signboards' so-called personality traits, 'doctor', 'engineer', 'noble', 'kind', etc., Self lies beneath. With which we are born. The purpose of our existence, the real form of our personality. Those who really want to meet their own self should meditiate. Nothing is more challenging than to face your ownself. Conquer your inner. Outer will be next.
