The False Self: from Depression to Expression of the True Self
This is a John-Roger seminar that touches every human on the planet because each of us has several selves: the true self that is an extension of God into us which we reference as a Soul; and the false self….yes, that one! J-R says, “The false self is much easier to recognize than the true self. It’s the one that says, ‘Nobody loves me. Woe is me. I’m concerned about what people say and think about me. I’m depressed. I’m blah.’…..in other words, all of these bummers, depressions, and illusions. All are perpetrated by the false self.” Get the picture?
J-R continues this way. “This is a planet of learning, a planet of mistakes, a planet of errors. And so in a sense of the word, we really can’t fail. We can only say and think, ‘I’m a failure,’ which is giving strength into a false image. When you start coming back around the same path, that should be the time when you say, ‘Is this really working for me?’ This is when I say, it takes courage to see the face of God. Your own face. Your own Soul. The Divine Light. The True Self.”
J-R gives us concrete examples of what to look for within ourselves. “There is a true self,” he says, “and when you’ve moved your consciousness into the true self, you’ll find joy and happiness, a state of thankfulness, of acceptance, and of enthusiasm. You’ll find life very balanced.
