Be Your Own Oracle

“When I discover who I am, then I will be free.” -Ralph Ellison

“No one can tell you you’re in love. You just know it. Through and through. Balls to bones.” -The Oracle speaking to Neo in The Matrix

“The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool.” -Richard Feynman

“One should know one’s self. For that, the path of knowledge, the inquiry of the form “Who am I?”, is the principal means.” -Ramana Maharshi

“Gnothi Seauton.”

(Inscription above the entrance to the temple of Apollo at Delphi, site of the sacred oracle.)

Trying to find your purpose, your destiny? Struggling with what to do in a particular situation?

Be your own oracle. Ask and continually answer the following as it will change as you change:

Know thyself.

Know what thy want.

Know why thy want it.

You tackle those three…can’t lose.

P.S. – This scene.
