What is True Self?

Posted at 10:14 pm on 11/08/2015 by Bellaa Parcelle

Imagine you are a tetherball - you are moving round a pole at some speed, often moved by outside circumstances, or your own momentum. Your core (the pole) is steady and upright. Your emotions/feelings/actions (the ball) are being dictated by those you meet in your path. Notice that how people see you is in relation to where the ball moves - they do not see the whole you - just a perspective - and neither do you! Now we see the importance of having a firm core and balanced emotions.

As we looked at some definitions on true vs false self, we decided to include a great exercise on the different values, to help clue you in to those most vital to you right now - enjoy the exercise! 

How do you know who you can be, if you don't know who you are? - Isabell (Bellaa) Parcelle

For that man whom your outward form reveals is not yourself; the spirit is the true self, not that physical figure which can be pointed out by your finger.                                                                                                                --Marcus Tullius Cicero
