Personal: Enlightenment: I experience myself and the world as subject and object only through conceptualization and language. My mind produces a subject-object dualism. The subjectivity of my mind affects the perception of the world that is held as being objective by nature. …What does knowing thyself mean? Why is the discipline of examination and reexamination of the self so painful since so much of everyday living is automatic?
Personal: Confused on certain matters while open-minded on matters I hold a firm understanding of makes me susceptible to outside influences. However, I’m getting better at finding facts and at weeding out the excuses to facts.
