KNOWING YOUR TRUE SELF
Sometimes I’m asked, “If sub-wills are usually subconsciously and automatically dominating me, how do I know when I’m being my True Self?” My short answer is: it’s like love; you know it when you experience it.
As with any great revelation, knowing your True Self is a WOW experience that may suddenly come upon you. For a simple analogy, let’s say you’ve been living with low energy and poor health for so long that this low grade experience of yourself has become your accepted normal Self. Then one day you begin a health program of proper nutrition and exercise. And after a few months you wake up with a new vitality. Suddenly you feel like a new person, like the true healthy and energetic person you were meant to be.
Another way to understand your True Self is by considering childhood. If you were a normal healthy child, you may have experienced your True Self back then. At that time you weren’t burdened or ruled by preconceptions and beliefs. You were free to fully be your natural self, alive with curiosity and intelligence and in touch with your creative instincts. And even though you weren’t your adult optimal True Self yet, you nonetheless were a nascent True Self, authentic in every way and brimming with the creative energy of life.
These are two preliminary ways of understanding your True Self. It’s an authentic state of being we tend to lose as we become young adults and can regain by doing some inner work; this work involves increasing awareness of our sub-wills and the reactive behaviors they cause, developing a central Master Will that is in true control, and learning to tune in our higher intuitive knowing.
By doing this inner work we become who we really are and were mean to be.
Goodness and joy to all, Joseph.
