First of all I’d like to state that this post can nowise be taken for granted for as you can guess everything that follows is exceptionally subjective. On the one hand the question is bound to arise, – ‘who can know me better than me?’, but the second question is shouting out from the other hand, – ‘how can I happen to know myself if I can only see my reflection in the mirror id est I’m not even blessed enough by the Holy Whoever-It-Is-Up-There to see my ears, I’ve been burdened with for twenty years and a couple of months, without help of the above-mentioned mirror.
I must also admit that I’m finding it quite difficult to describe myself. Still I wouldn’t say I tend to find easy ways (not true), therefore I will go on…
My character: from my perspective I’m absolutely easy to get on with, although people who find it easy to do it, only do it with the image that I feel blessed by the Holy Whoever-It-is-Up-There to be able to create. I’m too deep to seem deep, but I’m not deep enough to seem shallow. Well, I hope you (those few who are interested) will all be able to find out about my character more from the further posts on this blog that I promise will take place soon.
My beliefs: I believe in dreaming and the power of thought. It’s my strongly held conviction that our thoughts are able to change the matter i.e. reality. It might seem meaningless but I think that reality only influence our inner world when it’s influenced by our inner world itself. A famous but American writer once wrote, ‘My body is a temple’, I do believe that people possess the right to go further, to be more arrogant in our beliefs – and mine is, ‘My mind is the world’.
My learnedness: I wouldn’t say that I know a lot. More than that, to my mind, if somebody says he or she knows a lot, they do know nothing or something that borders with nothing. Socrates once said, ‘The only wisdom is in knowing you know nothing’. This quote is something I’m not too far away to agree with. Not that I assumed I couldn’t be that audacious as not to dispute his words – no. As a matter of fact I believe anything can be questioned by any-one. And this questioning is the main engine of evolution. I know as much as I should know and so does everybody. Nevertheless, be kind and don’t form an opinion about me as if I were stupid. I think I am not – I have read a couple of books.
Well it must be enough for you to grasp what kind of personality I am. And if you haven’t, I hope it will only spur you up to read the posts that this one will be followed by.
