How to Overcome the Self That’s Overcoming You

posted by Guy Finley
Dear Friend,
Freedom from what is unwanted by you begins with awakening to what is unseen within you. So . . . 
. . . If you’re tired of asking yourself “What came over me?”, after the damage has been done, there is an answer. It begins with understanding that in life you can never act more clearly in any given moment of challenge than what you understand about it before it begins.

And since Higher Studies reveal that whatever your situation may be at the moment is one and the same as your present level of self-understanding, the more you come to know about your own un-investigated inner-workings, the more clearly will you be able to exercise the missing self control. 
You can begin to overcome the self that overcomes you by studying closely the unconscious psychological sequence  that is revealed below. When you can see how one part of yourself manages to take control of the rest of you, that’s the beginning of the end of its self domination.
1. Undetected thought unconsciously calls up some past security or pleasure.
2. The sense of pleasure is identified with by another thought, and “self” appears.
3. This thought “self” fears losing its newly found security, creating anxiety in it.
4. Sudden anxiety gives rise to confusion.
5. Spreading confusion causes the feeling of losing “yourself”.
6. Feeling as though you’re losing “yourself” creates fear.
7. Fearing the loss of itself, this thought “self” then struggles to reinvest itself in the rescuing idea found in the pleasure of the original unconscious thought; the same one responsible for creating the circle of self which has overcome you. 
Remember: Self-Awakening is always the solution, because self-defeating behavior can continue only for as long as you remain asleep to yourself within yourself.

In the Spiritual World There is No End in Sight
What we need to succeed in the spiritual life is a heart that can see. Most people spend more time taking care of their physical bodies than their spiritual ones. They preoccupy themselves with insane appetites to try to keep the body alive instead of being concerned that their spirit is dying.

The Development of True Peace
  It is a distinct stage in the development of the aspirant when -- rather than being easily distracted by some imagined consolation for his pain, or by concluding who is to blame for it -- his first and real preference in the moment is to increase his consciousness of his condition, and not

The Interior Action that Builds Character
The character of goodness, of compassion and kindness that we would like to reflect and express before our friends (and enemies), requires that we place “its” life before our own. And yet, when we agree to this interior action of self-sacrifice, not only is our life returned to us, but we find t

Enter a World Where Goodness is Its Own Reward
Once we see it's impossible to please ourselves at the expense of the pain of someone else, we are released from the cycle of seeking a false comfort whose conflict compromises "winners" and "losers" alike. Only then are we free to enter a new world – above the opposites -- where goodness is its o
