Short story: To thyne own self!

Updated on December 25, 2011

To thyne own self be true!

Because truthfulness stands the tallest among mankind. It is then by this judgment of our own self, that one will either. Stand of Fall. This is the most important point of all our existence. Whatever choice we make.
I deliberately chose to do this season to ask this question, because as a boy, for most of my childhood, I was able to observe many things about my own life, simply by observing and analyzing the ways of my family , friends and others.
During that time there was this metamorphosis type action that was constantly going on within me. I paid close attention, and continued doing so throughout my life, and even to this point. It allowed me to be able to sincerely understand more about myself and more about life. It is this very same adaptation, which rules supreme in me. I will love to call it, having an understanding with my conscience. So at this stage I decided to obey only my belief. Because I had more than enough time to come to this unshakable understanding, One that is excuse less and true, thus making me have a sincerely true purpose, which always start with me being my own true self . As my Mom always say to me :

Son to thyne own self be true!


t's by these measures I conduct my everyday life and go on to become, my own toughest critic.

In all my observations, I have overwhelmingly concluded that my greatest challenge, won’t come from myself, but undoubtedly from my association with others.
Since I "must" deal with others, life will forever be that challenge, the one that I/we did not ask for, but must graciously accept .

All my life from since a boy, looking around me, I see people doing their own things and especially around this time and the Easter they will be in droves going to church. For a while I had no choice, but now I do.
Yes my brethren we are the very first to do the judging of ourselves, and then whatever we believe, and I can only say to you , that "Evil" from knowing what it is and its capabilities , cannot continue to have it's way forever.
Even we as humans try to add our two cents , by having Jails and punishment for what we believe is evil. Now what about that Evil man making money punishing the man he says, is a Evil man. What about him?

      I know what you mean by wondering about the ones who punish others while they have evil hearts..It's called hypocrisy and they are the worst..I've seen that video and it's wonderful..

      One cannot ask for a better summary than , this one, as an analysis, of the truth of what's written.

      I am writing a hub which reads: "The good that evil does!"

      I will draw it to your attention when it's completed . So I understand clearly what you are saying about balance.

      Thanks again for reading and such a great comment.

      As humans, we will always be flawed. The struggle to overcome our flaws, the good within us that struggles daily with the evils of the flesh that comprises us is the warp and the weave of the fabric that makes up the human condition. One holds the other in the pattern and allows for it to grow.

      Rasta 1 great to see you and to receive such an over standing. This thoughtful and enlightening philosophical comment, can only lead to the beginning of great things happening at the drawing board. Would you say?

      I know that you went into a temporary absenteeism, because I man saw it coming and I envisioned a sincere reason .

      So I sit usually in wait for the creation, figured it had to do with the utilization of that new purpose for hub writing, until I heard someone robbed your hemp ad or something. But with your attitude I know you will return stronger. That's the last signal.Anger is the lack of understanding.

      But I know all is well , positiveness cannot falter!

      Yes I, Sometimes when people become angry with me. I always say to my self, maybe I did not show that person enough love and then I go to the drawing board.
