Nosce te ipsum – who are you?

Nosce te ipsum – who are you?

“I warn you, whoever you are… Oh, you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you be able to find it outside. If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies? In you is hidden the treasure of treasures. Oh, man, know thyself and thou shall know the Universe and the Gods!” Inscription on the frontispiece of the Temple of Apollo on Mount Parnassus, Greece; 2500 BC.

This expression, or aphorism, prompts us to know and find that “undivided” and “insumable” part that underlies each and every one of us, the divine spark that we keep within us, immortal and incorruptible, covered with physiological and psychological elements of our ephemeral and mortal Existence. It is not a question of inheritance, be it biological / genetic, or through socialization and culture, but rather of what we decide to do with said inheritance…

“Know Thyself” is the essential basis for the search for the reasons, emotions and laws that govern our own Life, to meet the mystery of the human spirit and soul, and to intuit why we are here, where we come from and where we are going. So, “quo vadis?”

Knowing yourself in depth achievable and obtainable. On many occasions we become strangers to ourselves due to lack of awareness, attention, training, evaluation and adequate communication, with ourselves and with others. All being factors within our own responsibility and field of action.

Your results are a direct consequence of your actions and these, in turn, have their origin in your decisions, which are not only conditioned, but also determined by your perspective, which is nothing more than a reflection of what you are aware of.

If you want to delve into this topic and learn what it means to “know yourself and where your life is heading”, I invite you to get straight to the point.
