Four Great Questions:
Who are you?
What do you want?
Why are you here?
Where are you going?
Most of us never completely answer these questions.
We shy away from them, because we're not sure of the answers ourselves.
But they are intrinsic to human happiness, because inside yourself, inside of everyone, some part of us is always asking these questions of ourselves.
Many hide from them, ashamed or afraid of the answers they would have to give, if they were being honest with themselves.
There is nothing wrong with making a mistake, or a bad choice.
Or simply not knowing the answer.
But there is a problem when you become so scared, that you run from these questions.
Your courage will always have to come from within yourself.
Others may give you hope, or a good reason for your courage, but it will always have to come from within yourself.

That was miniature post but to let know you candidly it penetrated unfathomable inside the core of mind, heart, & soul. Sometime when we are wedged or can’t make a decision we should ask our self what we want, what’s our purpose, and I have set it a name to it ‘TRUE MIRROR’, for me it’s like gazing deep inside myself and asking the entire question and answers to myself, & if I am erroneous, take the responsibility sincerely. And most important is to plan the future course of action.

Knowing our self is not so a great deal about introspection and interaction. To recognize our self is to comprehend that you are more than the little self that has been given to you by your history — the pattern that others made — that your true self is, in truth, much larger and includes other people, other cultures, other species even. That life is less about being and more about interceding. We come to know ourselves, then, through coming to know each other. And the deeper that knowledge, the richer and more creative t he world we build together

Hope it didnt caused u head ache

These 4Ws are indeed the questions that most of us avoid (including yours truly)!

But those who are able to answer it will find peace within their hearts!

@avinash: thank you for you kind word. and of course it did not cause any headache. the name 'true mirror' is very apt but not everybody has that much depth to gaze deep into themselves.most of us are shallow when ot comes to recognizing the true self as you have said.looks like you are someone who attaches a lot of importance to this which is quite rare. it was lovely reading your comment. keep writing

i am what i am said...

@vikas: thats true. if only we could answer them, wouldnt our lives be eternally happy??????
