Mastery and Enlightenment


“He who controls others may be powerful,
but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.”

“He who knows others is wise.
He who knows himself is enlightened.”

– Ancient wisdom from the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, which still remains relevant today.

    So true. From my experience it is our lack of knowledge of ourselves that can be our biggest hurdle. Blessings.
