Shadow of Self and Why It Matters

There are two selves we often read about in literature describing the nature of self. First there is the psychological or egoic self, signified by a small s, as in “self.” The other is the Authentic Self or Higher Self, represented by a big S, as in “Self.” It is the light of awareness that arises from the Authentic Self. And it is the darkness of the shadow that is cast by the ego.

Anatomy of the Mind

“Your brain creates the illusion of constancy, yet in truth the person or thing you believe to be in front of you is actually a ghost of what was in front of you a few thousandths of a second ago.”  -Deepak Chopra

The great teachers of the past have been telling us for thousands of years that the idea of physical reality is a mere illusion. Now it appears science is telling us the same thing. It seems time for us to revisit the wisdom of the past and combine it with the new information available today in order to gain a better understanding of the reality in which we live. In turn, we can make informed decisions when eliminating belief systems that do not serve our best interest.

The Everyday Language of Quantum Physics

Quantum Physics and the “Light of Awareness”

Let’s look a little further into how we create ideas to attempt to fit our version of reality. It was discovered in 1932 that every particle has its opposite, an antiparticle, which is another particle with a series of opposing characteristics to its non-twin. Moreover, whenever they meet they always destroy one another. How might this fit with the principle of duality? Indeed, when we see the interconnectedness of all things, the principle of duality drops away. Furthermore, when a positron meets an electron they disappear and in their place are two photons, which immediately leave the scene at the speed of light. How might this fit with the idea of “shining the light of awareness” on an erroneous idea of the mind, causing it to disappear? The euphemisms referred to here are used as a symbolic expression of our experience with physical reality.

In order to answer these questions, lets have a look at some of the overarching ideas in science, and how they seem to support the suggestion that we have more say in our everyday reality than we choose to believe.

Traveling at Life’s Speed

Available on Amazon and Kindle

 

In this book series I have described a path to total self-awareness. For me, it all started with reading inspirational literature, contemplative walking, introspective reflecting and journaling. In the first book of the series, Peace: The Art of Mindfulness to Eliminate Stress, I wrote about mindfulness and how we can program the mind to change our default progressively from constant mind chatter, to less inner dialog, to mindful chatter, to mostly silent with intentionally directed internal dialog.
