BE YOUR OWN MASTER

True nobility is no comparison with  your friend,  it is not competing with your peers.  True nobility  is conquering  yourself not another.
You are like a multi layered secrets.  Like a diamond  hidden  behind  rumbles.  You must dig within and unveil your true essence.
“Seek to understand  the root,- it is futile to argue as to which a single leaf, which design of branch, or which attractive  flower you like; when you understand  the root,  you understand  all its blossoming.
Bruce Lee.

You have your root. It’s your inner self.  Yes,  you may know your favourite  food,  you may know your favorite  color, fashion  style and all.  But you must still know yours emotions,  your behavioral  pattern, your flaws.  Because  when you  fully understand  self, then conquer it. You may know the right things but knowing  without  application  is void. And why humans resist application  against  all our best interests is because  we aren’t  in control of self. You are flowing  blindly  to the dictates of your mind.  And in the mind,  a million  emotions  strive.  Each fighting  to conquer  the other.  Chaos is about.  Living without  self mastery  is like swimming  in this chaos.
