• Ethics is the activity of man directed to secure the inner perfection of his own personality. — Ludwig Philipp Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) Alsatian polymath [seven disciplines]
• Being human always points, and is directed, to something or someone, other than oneself – be it a meaning to fulfill or another human being to encounter. — Dr. Viktor Emil Frankl (1905-1997) Austrian neurologist, psychiatrist, & Holocaust survivor
     Note: The ‘someone’ can be THE ONE.

Comment: When focusing on the inner realm, you will discover subconscious, conscious, and superconscious. You will know the superconscious by its feel. This is the area from which your supreme impulses and the sense of right action emanate. This is what to heed.
     Listen to external norms and judge them by your highest understanding of objective reality; then decide how or if to accept them.

Observation: Labels – like introvert, sensitive, quiet, shy, or withdrawn – attempt to describe how others experience you. They do not relate to who you are. They can limit you because the tendency is to live to the limits of the label and only go that far. In addition, there is the stigma that can accompany any label. — Sarah Dolliver; Founder of InnerVantage
