The hardest and toughest thing to be in this life, of which your mind and outside opinions of others are continually waring against; is to be your complete self. You cannot be yourself, if you don’t know who you are. And you cannot know who you are, if you don’t know where you come from. This is our only battle and quest in this life; to find out who we are and where we come from. Survival is just secondary. Go beyond your human knowledge of who you think you are; your life’s journey starts from this point. Life is waiting for you to discover the realization of who you are. Start your journey, in search for the truth of you. Don’t abandon the search, because the only truth that you need to discover, is the truth of you; that’s what that empty void inside of all of us is about. Don’t abandon the search of discovering the truth about you. There will be many truths along your path; but there is only one. Don’t settle for any other truths until your void is filled.
