Forgetting Yourself

March 2, 2012

What is your first thought/interpretation of the quote below?

“When a man forgets himself, he usually does something everybody else remembers.” – James Coco

Is it

a) When I react and let go of my rudder/soul, do I do something I wish I hadn’t?

OR

b) When I let go of the person I currently am and reach into my core/soul, I will do something I would be proud to be remembered for.

Think about why you chose whichever you chose.

Thoughts for answer a:

“Good judgment comes from bad experience.” – Elderly wise person

“The entire purpose of our existence is to overcome our negative habits.” – Vilna Gaon

For answer b:

“Our roots are our faith and commitment, our trunk and branches are our learning and character, and our deeds are our fruits.” – Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson

“In order to move forward you have to leave yourself behind.” – Tzvi Freeman

“When I let go of who I am, I become what I might be.” -Lao Tzu

“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.” – Ralph Ellison
