The path to truth is action, not introspection and projection.
After years and years of conditioning from society and family, when you look at yourself, you’ll see the expectations and messages that the others have, not the real you.
And, often, you can’t realize just by introspection that it’s just an induced illusion, a label, a kind of mutilation of the child in you.
The illusions of the soul, just like the optical ones, trick our mind, but if you draw a line and start measuring, you find out the truth, you untangle the illusion.
The only way to find out the truth about you and about the world you live in is by courageously and creatively experiment life, day by day.
