Seeing Only The False Self

Hamartia is made up of two parts: ha-(an aspirated alpha), which is a negation (like un-or dis-), and -martia, from the Greek root meros, which means “form, origin, or being.” The fundamental meaning is “negation of origin or being” or “formlessness.” Yes, it is about “missing the mark,” but the mark is not perfect moral behavior. The “mark” is the Truth of your being.
