Know Yourself. Claim Yourself.

Standard

I’ve been away from spreading this positive wisdom for quite a while (about six months!!!) and, frankly, it shows. If our environment and our lives are a direct reflection of our minds and our inner selves, then mine has been a bit chaotic since I’ve slacked off on finding a good piece of information/inspiration to share with friends and strangers all over the world each day. I’m back to my commitment of sharing some good soul food each day. Hopefully it will be as much of a benefit to you as it is to me.

I was really touched by this proverb while reading a great blog post on http://www.diningwithdana.net . I think this proverb is simply ‘on point’. We all need to tap into our spiritual memory and remember ourselves – our true selves. Know who you are and own who you are so that no one else has the power of ownership over you. When you know yourself, you respect yourself and respect will save the world. 🙂

If you don’t know who you are, anyone can name you. And if anyone can name you, you will answer to anything.” —African proverb
