"Physician, heal yourself!"
In accordance with this line Algernon Sidney, the English political theorist said: "God helps those who help themselves.". Later Benjamin Franklin quoted it in one of his books so this sentence now is attributed to him mostly.
What it means is that a lot of times we do not see how we can help ourselves. We just do what others want us to do. We accept solutions that are made by others and handed to us on a plate. We do not question the righteousness of these cookie-cutter, ready-made recipes.
If we look into our heart and see what is really there, we may see a different world.
The solution lies within us no matter what other people say and want.
