As You Really Are

Cloud of Unknowing
"Strain every nerve in every possible way to know and experience yourself as you really are. It will not be long, I suspect, before you have a real knowledge and experience of God as He is."

(A final thought about self-knowledge versus what we might call person-knowledge, there is an important difference between knowing your self and knowing ‘about’ yourself. True self-knowledge of self 'as it is' is aided by introspection and time spent alone with God.)

  1. But we don't get to the big one without a pretty good grasp of the little self, do we? P.

    1. Self doesn't go until it has been lived through completely. But I doubt God is held back in what It can and will do by anything we know or don't know.
