Know The Self

Robin Rice

TEXT: To know the self, which is to say YOURSELF, is an enormous undertaking. It is not a part-time job. There is no retirement. The desire to search is age-old, but the desire is not enough. The conditions have to be right to formulate the kind of person who will search (think tragedy and loss), and the personality has to be of the variety that prefers to search more than she prefers to sleep. For this reason, I give thanks for my early hardships. It set me off on a search that permeates my every cell. The only moments I am not in this search of the self are when I am helping another in their search. Exhausting? Yes, in the way that mountain climbing is exhausting. Exhilarating, yes, in the way that mountain climbing is exhilarating. Never ending? Yes, in the same way there is a mountain top, but also, always, 
another mountain to climb.
