You don't spend your life knowing yourself, right?
I just want to make sure we are on the same page.
I call what you state - Self.
What do you call it?
lol....I knew it was risky writing that, and you would catch it.
But I won't admit it was a fumble yet.
To know oneself is not a oneness, of self with Self.
If one is given the opportunity to know, then it is better to know, than to assume.
Likewise, If one is given the opportunity to assume, then it is better to assume, than to know(because one may know incorrectly.)
What one is given, can be taken away.
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the Name of the Lord.(Job)
