Over time we seldom define ourselves as one thing or another, placing a mental barrier on who we truly are. When in fact our true essence can not be defined. Labels are place on us since birth. From the name given at birth to nicknames to words that others may have tried to define us as. The “I Am” speaks of your true “being” which changes and as impossible to define.

Socrates (c. 469 BC – 399 BC) was a classical Greek philosopher and one of the founders of Western philosophy. He is known mostly through the writings of his students Plato and Xenophon, and the plays of his contemporary Aristophanes. He influenced subsequent philosophers by his approach to logic (named the Socratic Method) and his infamous trial and subsequent execution, as described by Plato.

Extensive expressions on “know thyself” welcome contemplation. They proclaim that “Truth” stands the test of time, bypassing the ages and linking us with the authors who revealed them. They stimulate our curiosity for more information about the men and ladies who had a hard time before us, who strove in their times to discover a company foundation of truth, as we do today. They show timelessly relevant and open doors into additional questions of our true nature. They validate that, despite the passage of millennia, man’s battles have basically stayed the exact same as it is, and always has been, a being in search of fact and identity.
