"See Yourself" as written by and George Harrison....
It's easier to tell a lie than it is to tell the truth
It's easier to kill a fly than it is to turn it loose
It's easier to criticize somebody else
Than to see yourself

It's easier to give a sigh and be like all the rest
Who stand around and crucify you while you do your best
It's easier to see the books upon the shelf
Than to see yourself

It's easier to hurt someone and make them cry
Than it is to dry their eyes
I got tired of fooling around with other people's lies
Rather I'd find someone that's true

It's easier to say you won't than it is to feel you can
It's easier to drag your feet than it is to be a man
It's easier to look at someone eles's wealth
Than to see yourself

    General CommentThe last verse especially has a real ring. It's easy to say you can't: maybe you can't but unless you try you'll never know the answer. It also connects to the wealth inside yourself and who you really are. You might not feel the need to try a free fall parachute so you never have to test if you can; but you might want to learn to play guitar or violin, or to do that course in art at the local college. That's you, so if you have to play slowly with crooked fingers, play slow, if you paint with poor eyesight paint just what you see. All the time this is being who you are rather than someone else. I saw a lecture by a bloke called Zandar who said he welcomed moments of failure because he could figure what he was doing wrong. So who's perfect anyway?
