I know that there are many spiritual being browse through this web..and this is just my feeble attempt to trap some and try to put forward the sense of knowing oneself. Do we really know ourself? Not just following and repeating the lines of the book, but deep within our self, do we hear this voice of our knowing self? Your feedback will be of stepping stone for me to know and analyze if we really know ourself....thank you very much for reading my message. I hope you will put forward your opinion in this regard..

I'm presently out the door, but I just wanted to give you a welcome to the site.
Later, I will make some time to answer your question (er, at least give you my attempt at it).


P.S. Those are great pics on your site - did you take them?

We will not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And to know the place for the first time.

well i'm no great spiritual being...i hope to be.....but i do think in some form we do hear ourselves, if i take time to ask myself, truly ask, i always know the answer, and i always realise that i had known it all along...its just by actually taking time to aknowledge it as a real gets answered??? soz i'm not making much sense, and i'm not sure if i'm even answering your question! soz

at the moment i'm spending a lot of time trying to figure out my mind and how to use it to my advantage, cos i've realised at one particular moment in time i think i can be thinking about up to 50 different things, i'm now focusing on appointing specific tasks to think about instead of "randomness"...

soz again if i totally missed the point....

Hi taceovia, and welcome!

I believe there is an eternal, knowable part of oursELVES that yes, we may know. Most people slowly forget themselves through childhood, and keep seeking to remember throughout adulthood. All cultures encourage a spiritual path of quietude and listening to oneself, to hear the quiet messages that are always available if one is not too caught up in ego and busy-ness. Once one has tapped into that part of the self, that sense is always there, even if we forget at times (we are a forgetful species, indeed!).

That sense, for me, is a whole body/mind/spirit/soul/whathaveyou knowing. Until I knew it, it was just something I read about in books, something I wished for. And it felt exactly like it had in childhood, as I remembered a particular memory of feeling connected and being myself.

That said, I also believe that a sELF is an ongoing work of art, a travelling show, a moveable feast, a story that expands outward and inward in multiple directions in time and space. I astonish mysELF almost every day, with all the feelings and thoughts and actions I can contain, and express. In that regard, I know I will never come to an end of learning about myself, as all changes. So no, in a way, I cannot know the whole of my changing self. I think that's why I'm a writer -- unless I write it down, there are too many events and thoughts and feelings to remember, and I will forget.

Are you going to share more with us? And maybe results?
