      Studying Oneself?



      [ You mention enough times about studying oneself and mentioning about
      people being at where they are at. But how would you suggest going about
      analysing oneself? ]



      One could write a chapter on this, if not a book. So it cannot be done
      in an email. I have never done a book on it. ALSO, don't confuse
      this with the assertion KNOWING one's SELF, for it is not the same
      thing, albeit that if you DO know your SELF it will play a big part in
      your assessment of personality traits. But you can still do it without
      that. So, there are many things which you can look at and then finally
      judge them all and see if you are happy with it or not. Does it measure
      up to your Q ? Also, is your Q static or is it up for further
      development and moving on?



      Let us just do one simple test – the betrayal of trust and your own
      reaction to it. Somebody, or an animal, has come to know you well and
      they trust you. That is something which cannot be pretended; you cannot
      ask them for it; and you cannot buy it. You have to earn it. So, let us
      say that you have come to earn it and that this person or animal DOES
      trust you. Could you then do something which would betray and shatter
      that trust? It will hurt them like hell. The chances are that you will
      never get that trust back again. Does that matter to you? Could you
      betray a trust? How do you feel about both those effects on them and on
      you? Does it matter at all, does it matter a little bit or does it
      matter a lot? Search yourself for the answers. Nobody else can know;
      only you. You can do the same on all the characteristics which you can
      find within yourself. Does it matter if you lie or don't lie? How do
      you feel about it? Go through the whole gamut of things. Do you like
      what you see? If not then do something about it. If you cannot find
      anything untoward anywhere then you must see yourself as perfect. I
      wonder if anybody really does see themselves as perfect :- )) But
      don't expect others to be like you or where you are AT. For they
      will not all be where you are AT.



      Evidence from experience also suggest that your subconscious is doing
      this assessment anyway. But don't just let your subconscious do it;
      do it consciously with intent. If you cannot live with YOU then you
      cannot live with anybody. If you cannot feel any worthwhile quality
      about you then you will not about anybody. Judge yourself before you
      judge others. A life not studied is a life wasted. Only ONE person is
      ever going to live your life. YOU. Make it count for something. You
      will never live this life again; so you have one go at it. And the time
      is NOW. Nobody can do this for you.
