Finding The True Self
The true self is not a difficult thing to find. One must only listen to find the true self. To stop "fighting" what you feel is you, and allowing it in to what is taught is you. To be what is taught instead of what is "inside", will only be a detriment. We need to stop and listen to ourselves, our souls, our minds, and become WHO we are once more.
You must find what is holding you back. Once you release that energy, your true self can emerge and you will be more at peace. Let go of everything, and reflect. What you have left, may very well be yourself.
Vanity must be dropped. Vanity is not part of a true self.
The true self is only hidden "within" because of the pile of "exterior" influences placed upon us from society. The true self is one with all, but with a separate consciousness within the body. Once one passes the consciousness from within the body, the true self becomes truly the ONE and there is only peace. While residing in the body, the closest to true self is the "inner" knowledge of the "soul" and the mind.
The "true" self can only be found by dropping ego. Ego is a thing that has us tied to this realm. It sounds silly to drop the self, to find the self, but really, it is the only way. The "self" or "ego" is our alter identity which is in control. The "true self" is not considered to be ego because it is only seen as "self" before you reach that point; once that point is reached, all ego, including what we see now as true self, is lost.
