something i want to try, its this style of writting ive been reading lately where authors would write about themselves, kinda philosophical look onto themselves. Tell me what you think

Anoter day i stay into the mirror that i call my inner soul. Another day i questions myself and my feelings in how i do and act in this world around me. Many times i have danced with the inner demons of myself that i've tried to remain hidden for all these years, and yet, they still keep opening these old scars. Sometimes i pounder my existence and my placement on this Earth, i tend to question my creater and pick away at his endless apathy towards me. Is there something i can not see? yet i am able to feel what is deep inside these wounds. Emptyness. Is that what i desire in this world or is it what i have been lead to believe.

The temptation to martyr myself for the cause i believe in, appeals to me very strongly, but yet there is always something holding on and preventing me from leaving. I have walked and travelled endless roads in life to find the hidden key to myself and who i am, but yet all roads lead to nothing and endless decisions of my downfall. Is this a question of what route i should take in life or is it a dangerous game of russian roulette with my sanity?

Carl Jung had something interesting to say about this very thing.


Your vision will become clear only when you look inside your heart...
who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.


Is it that you seek comments on your inner feelings or would you prefer others to include their own on this thread?

I'm assuming the latter since another persons' evaluation on my rumination, for instance, could cause certain distress.

i would like others to try their own cause its a nice style of writing which i look a lot to behonest. It has a certain feel to it that i like.

This is a great idea and very worthwhile.

Posters will write their refections on the condition that comments on thier work is not welcome.

Each poster could then include their personal thought without fear of rebuke.

I think it is a very important rule in such a thread.

Agreed? If so, I will post mine after a period of meditation.

This a very interesting style. I wonder if this could be a cathartic release of sorts. At the very least, it could spawn a short story idea. The darkest story cannot compete with inner demons. Hmmmm...wanders off mumbling.
