Mick O'Toole- Yes! Give yourself the Irish way of thinking. It is mysterious, beautiful and enchanting. We so need this. Again- compassion is the answer to it all. The love of one another cannot be dismissed. It is crucial in identification of who we really are.
Self realization does not reflect in the mirror- it reflects in all of life experiences as a teaching tool. Memories of even insignificant moments, along with profound moments come together and become what you are, what you understand, what you feel. In the end, compassion is the most valuable quality to identify yourself..the rest really doesn't matter.
