Facing Self

(by Carlos Bernardo Gonzalez Pecotche*)

"Many people find it very difficult to maintain a good relationship with themselves; they do not know whether to address themselves as "sir" or "you"; obviously when they are upset they address themselves as "sir" [or "madam"] and when they are reconciled as "you". It is natural for such a difficulty to exist because the person does not know himself well. It is common practice to bestow upon oneself excessive confidence; in these cases, he who is inside makes use of this confidence but later the relationship breaks down.
It is preferable, therefore, that the relationship with oneself be more intimate each day allowing one to get to know oneself better. In so doing, one will avoid being contradicted from within oneself when one expresses a thought during a discussion with others. What often happens is that he who does not tell the truth reveals it in his eyes; this occurs because he is denounced by he who is inside him. How many times as the mind speaks, the heart contradicts it through one's eyes? For this reason it is necessary to create harmony between the mind and the heart seeking full agreement between them; and if at times the mind expresses a lie, let all the other times follow the advice of the heart."
