PostSubject: TRUTH   Sun Apr 12, 2009 6:39 pm

Recently, I have failed. I have done something that I swore I would never--NEVER do. I won't say what, it's nothing so horrible, it's not even something that has much of an affect on me. I simply promised myself I wouldn't do it. So I was reading through some philosophy, and check this.

"The first and best victory is to conquer self; to be conquered by self is of all things most shameful and vile."
-Plato

Think about that. To be defeated by yourself. HOW LAME IS THAT? how weak am I that I was unable to keep the simplest of promises? How pathetic was I that my anger, my primal instinct overtook my logic, my reason, my resolve?

Not pathetic... human. We are primal creatures, born into sin.
Changes occur spiritually first, then physically. History shows our passions and spirit have always overcome our reason and our logic.

But no more. I won't allow this to happen again.

On a side note, I have some ranting to do about ghandi...but I'll get to that in a different post. (I know, that was kind of out there, but your sig reminded me of it)
