Knowing thyself is knowing thy god.
The way to know thy self is by interacting with all the things around you. And seeing how your self then interacts/reacts with all those things.
Then observe how your self reacts, rather than becoming that reaction. There is a difference here. When u observe you observe the identity of that reaction that’s emanating from you.
as opposed to, When you become that reaction, you then take on the identity of that reaction. Which is really not who you are.
You choose: become the identity or observe the identity.
