Know Thyself

Make it thy business to know thyself, which is the most difficult lesson in the world.
– Miguel de Cervantes

Socrates was famous in Athens for saying, “Know thyself”. It is said that one of his students said to him: “Socrates, you go around saying ‘Know thyself,’ but do you know yourself?” Socrates was said to have replied, “Not, but I understand something about this not knowing.”

From this: mindfulness, meditation, yoga, etc. are not the “answer” to all life’s problems. Rather, “it is that all life’s problems can be seen more clearly through the lens of a clear mind.” (Jon Kabat-Zinn 1990).

Yoga today (Tuesday July 3) from 6 – 7 pm by the river! 🙂
