A Quote by Astavakra Gita on being, self, wise, wisdom, and self-knowledge

Of the four kinds of being,
From Brahma to a blade of grass,
Only the wise man is strong enough
To give up desire and aversion.
How rare he is!
Knowing he is the Self,
He acts accordingly
And is never fearful.
For he knows he is the Self,
One without two,
The Lord of all creation.

Astavakra Gita

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on self-knowledge, soul, path, wisdom, purpose, mission, prophet, souls journey, and lotus

Say not, "I have found the truth," but rather, ”I have found a truth.”
Say not, "I have found the path of the soul."  Say rather, "I have met the soul walking upon my path."
For the soul walks upon all paths...
The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.
