How you see yourself determines what you can do with yourself.

“It’s never too late to be who you might have been.”
George Elliot

We are not continuously aware of the world around us. Awareness is not a continuous process, although we think it is. We think awareness is continuous, because we’re unaware of what we’re missing.

A road feels smooth because tires roll over the holes. The ride is smooth, but the road isn’t. Our awareness is like the ride; what’s really going on is the road. This applies to how we see ourselves in the world: it’s an illusion.
