How strange it is to realize that my perception of myself is not even about me. It’s about a character I imagine, playing a role to validate my belief that there is something wrong with me. Its even stranger to realize that to get to know myself I also need to know you, not just because we’re alike, but because we are actually a part of one another. In fact, Self-inquiry must fail if you anticipate discovering an “enlightened” version of the individual self you now see. Open your mind to finding your real self by forgiving and accepting the one in your experience you would think least likely to be your “savior.” Extending love to the character he is playing is the perfect way to discover the Presence of Love in the real you.
