PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT SECRETS

The School of Athens Raffaello Sanzio (1483–1520)

WHAT IS PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT?
What you need to know about enhancing your self-awareness, building life skills, choosing your personal identity, resolving limiting beliefs and experiences, and uncovering latent talents and abilities.
One of the philosophical fathers of Western culture, Plato, wrote the Allegory of the Cave nearly 2,500 years ago. Ironically, it is perhaps more relevant today than it was when it was written. In The Republic, Socrates describes a group of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall by things passing in front of a fire behind them, and begin to ascribe forms to these shadows. According to Socrates, the shadows are as close as the prisoners get to viewing reality. He then explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall do not make up reality at all, as he can perceive the true form of reality rather than the mere shadows seen by the prisoners. At the end of the passage, Plato expresses that education is not a process of putting knowledge into empty minds, but of making people realize that which they already know. In our modern era, perhaps these “shadows” have changed form; in some cases, becoming clearer than shadows, but more elusive than ever. The mass of humanity suffers an endless barrage of media messages from all sides. The hopes and fears many experience on various levels of consciousness are directly derived from the degree to which a person knows oneself... We are all prisoners who hold the keys to our freedom, when we perceive the forms for what they are... illusions. Be your own philosopher and determine your own path.

Plato’s Allegory of the Cave Only knowledge of the Forms constitutes real knowledge. Begin recognizing patterns and systems as a key to freedom.
