Ego Discipline



Punish what I fear most to see in myself in order to become what I don't yet -- and may never -- deserve to be.

  1. What a greatly introspective statement. If only we could all be so blunt with ourselves and strive each day to be less of one and more of another. I believe that it is a life-long process in those who seek wisdom of the spirit and a betterment of self.

  2. Cher, I was hesitant about this one. I played with it more than my usual.

    It's a template in the first person, applying Nietzschean clarity to hyper-humility. Really a mixed bag, that.

    Not the kind of statement one would put on one's resume in this here US of A, say wot?
