"Excellence" is not a gift, but a skill that takes practice. We do not act "rightly" because we are "excellent", in fact we achieve "excellence" by acting "rightly"." ~ Plato
We have believed this for 2372 years, and still do. The truth is that as long as I have not the slightest idea of the Excellence within, the Essence of my being, I have condemned myself to being an actor, constantly afraid of being ‘found out’. We act ‘rightly’ by thinking ‘rightly’. The ‘I’ thinking has to be lovingly examined and then recognized (Known again) as ‘Excellent’ beyond my wildest dreams.
