Why is it important to know and understand the difference between the true and the false self? Do we all have both and how can we live in alignment with our true selves?
Our false self is nothing more than our body and all that is connected to our ego structures. I call it our name, rank, and serial number. That’s who most of us, at least for a time, think we are. But who our parents are, where we grew up, and what schools we attend are all interesting but they are not who we are. Our true identity, in fact, has nothing at all to do with what we look like nor how smart we are, or how much money we have.
Our authentic selves are stable and unattached to this world. It has been referred to as our soul or the face we had before we entered our mother’s womb. Our true selves are unchangeable and have no end. Living authentically can allow us an incredible life journey!
