As a society, we have become so accustomed to ego-based emotions like misery, worry, fear, and conflict that we believe these are the norm. This is not the truth, however. We were born to be happy and love unconditionally-it's the gift of self. How can we return to a non-linear state of happiness and peace when everything around us says that nothing is more important than "me, me, me"?
"The Ego-Less SELF "is a journey of discovery and a return to the self by "one of the most influential clinical and spiritual teachers in North America." It looks closely at the notion of "spiritual transformation" by first showing readers how the ego develops over time to cause suffering in our lives. Once the ego is stripped away, then the historical pathways to the self-heart, mind and action-can begin to work.
With a broad range of spiritual influences, from the Bible to the Dalai Lama, personal stories of enlightenment, and real employable strategies and techniques, "The Ego-Less SELF "sets out to deflate the ego to let the true self shine through. Readers will begin to learn how to get rid of resentments, surrender the ego's unconscious programs for happiness, and employ simple techniques to increase contact with consciousness through the right-brain hemisphere.
The road to self is not about trying to acquire anything but rather the willingness to surrender all of our culture's egotistic ways, thus taking us back to that which we are-the purest self. "The Ego-Less SELF "is the GPS for the journey.
