So then is the True self ALWAYs at peace? If so, how do we find our true self? How do we discern our egotistic self?
For me, when I see that I am becoming emotional towards something(I could say it was a desire, but more like an attachment(which might be a synonym for desire). ) Anyways, I have to look with in and assess why I am becoming emotional. Sometimes, in my opinion, it is good to express these emotions, to learn about them so we can understand them.
I don’t think we can find our true self until we have passed from this life. I think the true self is the one we are searching to find…some deeper part that we attempt to express. Emotions(at least in my experience) used to be a gateway AWAY from my truer self. It distorted what it looked like.(Reminds me of the blank slate theory…)
Anyways, enough of a tangent. your post really has me thinking now lol
