[Spiritual] Fight Club: Knowing yourself is imperative. If you don’t know where you’ve come from, where you are currently, and where you want to go—you’re wasting your time. So many avoid knowing who they really are because of fear. Fear of what they were intended to be, and how they fit with nature – let alone with other people.
If someone genuinely wants to know him or herself: it’s absolutely possible to know that individual path in the most intimate way. It takes lots of work, but it’s worth every second. The more we know about ourselves (via meditation, suffering, dancing, etc.), the further we go into mastering our spiritual-craft and that’s where we become abundantly successful at sharing our light. But, that’s up to you…
If you ask me the importance of knowing yourself; I’m gonna go all-the-way-live Tyler Durden on you. “How much can you [spiritually] know about yourself, if you’ve never been in a [spiritual] fight? I don’t want to [spiritually] die without any scars. So come on; [spiritually] hit me before I lose my nerve”. But that’s just me, I’m from Hungry Valley, we do shit differently. Know yourself…and let go.
