''He who is aware of his folly is wiser". This is quite hard to swallow. But we do foolish things and we pay the consequences of our wrong choices. Why decide on doing the folliest thing (made up the word to mean the superlative) we know is wrong-- we know it harms the body and hurt loved ones, and then, blame others because "they" do not recognize our "true self"? And sometimes, as "victims" of their own choices, they berate on blaming others for the unsuccessful outcomes of what they've done to themselves. Every individual must take full responsibility of his actions. We would be wiser if trustworthy loved ones can help us be accountable partners with our decisions before making them. It's safer, that way. Being aware of the falsehood or wrongness of our deeds is the beginning of wisdom. The "fear of God" is the beginning of a slow step towards moving our position of seeing better from where we are in the perspective of Truth.
