On being one with yourself.

But tell me, which extraordinary man or woman has ever existed without his or her set of contradictions?

I guess the trick lies in being able to see yourself as a whole, to know who you really are, whatever others might think or interpret of you. 

To not live as scattered pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, but to be able to put the puzzle together, piece by piece, to make a comprehensive ‘whole’. To not exist in extremes, but to let those extremes exist within you, without being worried, confused, or tormented.

Even if it requires becoming vast. More vast than you ever have been. And being vast is easy. For true vastness lies in realizing just how small you actually are.

One day, I will sit you down and explain to you exactly what all I do. And all that I am. But wait. Let me figure it out for myself first.

    In response to this post, a couple of people (@carla_filmigeek and @waatho) have exposed me to this wonderful quote by Walt Whitman: “Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes.”
