When you start to look inside of yourself, you see your roles,
your emotions, the liar, the hypocrite, the thief, the one who deceives,
all the unwanted images.
Usually we don’t want to look at them,
but until you do not do that,
you lose half of your power.
You only exist in half of yourself.
One is the idealized image and the other is your unwanted image;
if you ignore it, all the power that the latter gives you,
then you don’t have it.
