Sunday reflection . . . .Only in relationship can you know yourself,

Only in relationship can you know yourself, 
not in abstraction and certainly not in isolation. 

The movement of behavior is the sure guide to yourself. 
It’s the mirror of your consciousness: 
this mirror will reveal its content, the images, 
the attachments, the fears, the loneliness, 
the joys and sorrow. 

Poverty lies in running away from this, either in its sublimations or its identities.

~ Krishnamurti

  1. I think you can know yourself no matter what. We are ourselves and believing that one can only know oneself under certain circumstances doesn’t make sense. Putting limits on how you can know yourself is saying that people cannot know themselves unless they have every experience possible. You can’t only choose one thing that makes knowing yourself possible. It’s all or nothing. We always know ourselves no matter what we do, or do not, experience. That’s what life is. Just sayin’.
