"So how did you lose yourself?" He asked
"I was unhappy...
So I did the unthinkable-
Fell into the pain and lost myself
The only thing I lost was my ego image
And all I gained was myself..."
"How could they see anything but the shadows if they were never allowed to move their heads?"
Plato- the allegory of the cave
I spoke with a soul today
And it was uplifting.
Of those who have not yet discovered
The journey into the self
How can one expect?
That was my wisdom for today...
If they could, they would-
And just like that comes an abundance of understanding and acceptsnce and patience.
Learning the art of existence
How to be in this world, but not of this world-
And many before me have spoken the same. The wisdom in the universe is one. Many arrive at it from different paths and at different times...
"It is the task of the enlightened not only to ascend to learning and to see the good but to be willing to descend again to those prisoners and to share their troubles and their honors, whether they are worth having or not. And this they must do, even with the prospect of death." Plato- the allegory of the cave
