Layers of Personality
It is like the layers of an onion. We remove one layer, and then another, and then it becomes easier. The outer layers are the hard ones. The more we unpeel the layers of the onion, i.e. the more we undress ourselves of our own superimposed layers of personality, the freer, the happier we become and the greater the chance of real fulfillment.
The Maximum Learning About Yourself
How can anyone on two legs understand his situation unless he is intelligent, unless he takes time off to reflect, unless he catches himself in a real situation? Not only once in a while, when there may be a spiritual gathering or some social event.

For years I faced life
for decades, centuries - forever.
I faced the sun and the moon,
I faced the moving breeze,
I faced the wind,
I faced the rain drizzle and downpour.
I faced the world and beyond.
