THE HUMAN CONDITION

"This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man"
                   POLONIUS--- "HAMLET
True to ourselves-  Other forces in life can never  determine  who we really are.. Being  a unique creation, and being true to that uniqueness can never be defined by another person, a job or a possession. So many of us seem to define our worth by our job, our bank accounts and even our associations with others. True to ourselves is the essence of inner and spiritual self-worth. Who we are springs purely from our soul and manifests itself in our actions. Self-awareness is our truth. We can never discern the truth by living a lie or a misrepresentation of our basic nature. This quest for the truth is a difficult one since it is a journey of self-discovery. This means, without compromise, confront our weaknesses, recognize our strengths and be open to change. Having done this we can't be false to anyone This honesty dispels fear and in this process tempers our egos and the desire to seek the approval of others. "The truth shall set you free" is more than an overused adage. It is the philosophy of  self -awareness and ultimately making our bond to each other infinitely stronger.

Writer's Block: The Worst Job
aldimai
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had? If you could go back today and say anything to the management at that job, what do you think would come out of your mouth?

The worst job I had was   a summer job  on college break, an elevator operator,  up and down, up and down- all shifts all day. all night---- booooooooooring., monotonous. If I could go back, what would I say? What's the stock phrase: i know this job has its ups and downs, but you know you can take this job and SHOVE IT!!!!!
