What's required for self mastery?
Power, knowledge, or something else?

Real men don't use no flippin lotion ... nor tissue for that matter.

What's wrong with blisters and air drying? It's more environmentally friendly ...and makes shaking hands much more interesting.

But getting back to learning the ins and outs of the alleged "self," I suspect that it's a futile enterprise for most humans, even IF a self actually exists.

Partial mastery might be achieved, but I'm not handing out that info without some ka-ching. We masters gotta eat, too.

Years of... working for yourself, psychedelics, a lot of time to yourself, constant research in every direction (especially the mind/brain sciences), and a firm grip on Socio-Agnosticism.

I was thinking coloring books & crayons, and therapy puppies. Although filling your house with these "POP!" figurines everyones is going nuts over might suffice too (there's even one for Al Bundy).

According to the collins dictionary - " the ability to take control of ones life without being blown of course by ones feelings, urges, circumstances, etc. Self mastery is that condition whereby your body is your servant not your master."

So there you go. Should've just looked it up.

Did you stumble upon an addiction? Do we need to have 'the talk?'

Firstly one must find out what 'self' is.
Know thyself.

One must stop time.
Forget 'was' or 'will be' and realise 'is/am'.
What is is.

I'll trade you 12 Beanie Babies for one of your POP!'s, or your entire POG collection.

From the site: www.theself.com

Brahman, the Tao, Buddha-Mind, Christ-consciousness, etc are all labels for the Self. As sugar cannot taste (experience) sugar, being sugar itself (no subject object division); your consciousness (existence) being indivisible is simply realized, and not an experience.

On account of the indivisibility of consciousness, I am you and you are me, but the indivisible consciousness Itself has become neither I nor you! When the wrong notions of 'you' and 'I' are given up, there arises the awareness that there is neither you, nor I, nor everything: It alone is everything.

- Yoga Vasistha

Patience, a temper and being able to listen.

And at times knowing when to say screw it all.

I agree with this. It has to start with humility. Where it goes from there depends on your vision.
