Truly Being

This above all: to thine own self be true and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man (Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 3)


From time to time, it is good to be alone with one’s self to listen to the song of one’s soul and spirit (howe’er melodious and inharmonious) that testifies to the truth of one’s being and becoming; and then to return to the world in faithful witness to the word that hath been heard.

  1. Thank you Paul!! It’s scary how much time I spend alone..:. But it’s done wonders for me to work on myself!! I feel as if I really accomplished something!! I’ve been keeping a journal since Mar 2020 and it’s become a record of how much I’ve learned about myself and how much more work I still have left to do!


  2. Your journal is priceless. I am willing to wager that when you review what you have written you will find more depth of truth about yourself than you might have conceived when you first penned those words. This, at the least, has been my experience when I, back in the day, kept a daily journal. (One sits on my shelf and, on occasion, I leaf through the pages and, often enough, I hear myself audibly respond: “Aha!”, which is to note that I behold layers of my truth that I could not have imagined I had discovered when I first wrote!). Brava!
