' The false self '...


This is the ego that we falsely think of as being our real self.

This is the ego to which memory ties us.

This is the illusive part of our dual personality; this is the known part of our being, a mere shadow thrown by the unknown part which is infinitely greater.

This moves from one earthly body to another, from one dream to another through the phantasmagoria of existence without awakening to reality.
