Am I True To Myself?

Travel deep inside yourself without the baggage of conditioning. Be an explorer, have patience and eventually your true nature will surface.

You will return from your journey with fresh skin and you will approach each day with a wonderful sense of wonder and bliss.
Macro R. Capristo

For the past two months, I have been exploring a different aspect of my existing therapies. The psychological aspects, in my opinion, plays an important part of healing and there are many books written about it. When I first read The Cancer Personality, I was amazed that I fit in to more than 90% of the traits described. And it you look at the traits, the majority has to do with emotional aspects of the cancer patient. Neglect at your own peril! Louise Hay in her book, You Can Heal Your Life says "Do not wait to discover this when you are under the surgeon's knife!"

Today's quote is to remind all of us to take a journey deep inside ourselves and release the bagging that you have been carrying for so long, unconsciously. Make a concerted effort to release the emotional toxicity within you and lead not only a healthier but also a more emotional fullfilled life.

Knowing Yourself
Many of us do not know ourselves. We think we know but actually we don't. Maybe we are afraid to face our own self. Perhaps the following can serve as a reminder:

Am I True To Myself - A Mirror For The Soul

I have to live with myself, and so
I want to be fit for myself to know,
I want to be able, as days go by,
Always to look myself straight in the eye;
I don’t want to stand, with the setting sun,
And have myself for things I have done
I don’t want to keep on a closet shelf
A lot of secrets about myself,
And fool myself as I come and go,
Into thinking that nobody else will know
The kind of man I really am;
I don’t want to dress up myself in sham.
I want to go out with my head erect,
I want to deserve all men’s respect;
But here in the struggle for fame and pelf
I want to be able to like myself.
I don’t want to look at myself and know
That I’m bluster, bluff and empty show.
I can never hide myself from me;
I see what others may never see;
I know what others may never know,
I never can fool myself, and so,
Whatever happens, I want to be
Self-respecting and conscience free.

My Gerson Clinic Trip
I just realised that it is so difficult to book the plane tickets to LA. Most of the major airlines are fully booked and I am now on the waiting list only, apparently because it's peak season now. Of course, the more troublesome aspect is getting the visa to enter USA. It is now made very difficult. Sigh.


  1. Am I True To Myself lyrics - by Lobo

    Today I looked down in the water
    I saw a face look back at me
    It hit me like a bolt of lightning
    I may not like what I see.
    Am I true to myself
    Do I believe in what I do
    Am I playing a role
    Do I want to be like you
    Or am I what I hate in others
    Only seeing things my way
    That's what I'm gonna ask myself today.

    Do I really like my brothers
    Do I like my hair so long
    Do I try to think of others
    Can I believe what's in my song

    Do I think of all men equal
    Or pretend I just don't see
    Have I looked for good in others
    Or just laughed and let them be.

  2. You have made a commendable effort in dealing with the tangible & physical aspect of your life.

  3. Dear Sunshine,

    I think I have done all that I can for the physical aspects and the psychological aspects are very difficult to deal with. The process is long and it's painful.
