It’s very easy to fool ourselves when we have a lot riding on believing a certain way, expecially when it comes to beliefs we hold about ourselves, and that’s why if we’re not to fall prey to delusion about where we are and where we’re going (assuming there is anywhere to go!) then we need to be honest with ourselves. But how do we know if we’re being honest? Might we not think we’re being honest and still be deluding ourselves? Yes, which is why we need to make a committment to being ruthless in our self honesty.
