People who have experienced self awareness know that they are both the inner man and the outer man Socrates referred to with the hope that they can live as one. The personality then becomes the tool of the inner man when it matures instead of the inner man being starved by the personality.
Why not just be rid of the 'personality outer self' and just let the 'inner Self' flourish?
To be truly Self-aware is to be able to distinguish between the self (the human being) and thee Self (Being).
The human being is only a person (or the personality) within a human body. What a person is made up of is thoughts and emotions. Both of which are invisible, just like a soul is. An individual person exists/dwells/lives within an individual human body. An individual person(ality) is created from what the human body experiences. Through the five senses of that human body the personality is formed. From the conception of the human body to the last breath of that body, while that human body is producing thoughts and emotions the human being is always being created/formed. ALL people are the exact same this way. but obviously because ALL human bodies experience different things there will ALWAYS be different thoughts being formed or occurring. Every uniquely different and individual thus special human body holds within it an also equally uniquely different and individual special human being also. No human being self is more or less than another is. They are ALL just uniquely different.
The (inner) Being is the Highest and is within EVERY thing. What this Being is made of is thee Mind, which is also invisible, this time just like a Spirit is. This Being exists/dwells/lives within absolutely EVERY thing. It is the One thing within EVERY thing. The Mind is only One that IS, always and in all ways, OPEN. The Mind was NEVER created nor formed. It is eternal. The (open) Mind is what allows human beings to be able to imagine absolutely EVERY thing. This ability allows human beings to be able to learn, understand, and reason absolutely any and every thing. This ability combined with the human brain being able to gather and store information that it obtains means that human beings have had the ability to imagine, invent, design, and create ALL that they have. The (open) Mind is thee Creator, some refer to.
Now, because this Creator, (that is thee Mind), from ALL accounts is completely invisible and able to transcend absolutely EVERY thing, It literally has NO ability to create other to ALLOW ALL physical things to FREELY move around in whatever way they so choose to. It is after all the invisible substance of space/no thing in between and around ALL physical things that allows them to FREELY move, which has CREATED the Universe, the way that It is NOW.
Remove the human being self and STOP LOOKING AT and SEEING things from that perspective ALLOWS the real and true Self to Create that what It is intending to and WILL Create. Because this Self IS thee Universe, Itself, then EVERY thing It does is for the good and best of and for Its Self/EVERYTHING, as One.
The answer to the question 'Who am 'I'?' is In the physical form I exist and can be SEEN in the shape of and by ALL physical things. 'I' am thee whole Universe, Itself, sometimes also referred to as Existence/ALL-THERE-IS/Life et cetera. In the Spiritual sense I exist and can be SEEN/UNDERSTOOD as the Truly always OPEN Mind, Itself, sometimes also referred to as Allah/God/Spiritual Enlightenment/et cetera.
Just like 'i' the human being is made up of two things, they being; A physical human body and the invisible personal thoughts and emotions being within. So to am 'I' the (inner) Being is made up of two things, they being; A physical Universal body (which is made up of ALL physical things) and the invisible One Mind KNOWING Being within ALL physical things.
Now, of course most of you, human beings, here will NOT get this nor UNDERSTAND this yet, when this is written. But this WILL BE-come common knowledge soon enough, which will also lead to the CREATION of the PEACEFUL and HARMONIOUS "world" that ALL human beings WANT to live in and share with one another together.
You just have to understand that if the concepts/ideas/values/assumptions/beliefs/views/et cetera (which are ALL just thoughts/thinking) within that individual human body come from ONLY that bodies past experiences and are NOT a shared common KNOWLEDGE/KNOWING among ALL, then that is just a subjective thought of actually no real importance at all anyway. That thought is just the individual little 'you', the 'person' and little self within a human body.
, however, commonly KNOWN by ALL is what IS
really important, and a guide that you will WANT to follow anyway.
Examples are; MOST adult human beings individually THINK that it is all right to drive around in motor vehicles, which pollute the actual air human beings NEED for their continued survival. These individual little selves TRY TO justify that this behavior as all right. If they could not so call "justify" this behavior they could not continue to do it. But what ALL KNOW and can agree on IS that it is WRONG to drive vehicles, which pollute the actual air human beings NEED for their continued survival. If some can NOT agree, then ask them if they would like to be put into a closed area, with the exhaust from a motor vehicle piped into that room? The earth's atmosphere could be classed as a closed area as obviously to much pollution can NOT escape quick enough.
Now MOST adult human beings will TRY TO justify that they NEED motor vehicles to go to work. Yet they are so blinded by this BELIEF that they NEED to work for money that they have lost ALL sight of what IS actually True and Real. That is; Human beings do NOT need money for their continued survival. This KNOWLEDGE is a KNOWING that ALL can agree on and accept.
These examples are WHAT thee Truth IS, and, from WHERE the Truth IS found is in agreement. From within EVERY one, passed the individual thinking one self and from the collective KNOWING One Self is WHERE the actual and real Truth lays and will be revealed from.
To KNOW thy Self, is to first KNOW who the human self IS and what it is made up of, and then to uncover Who and What the actual Real and True Self IS. The answer to the question Who am 'I'? has nothing to do with the just evolving human coming into being, passing through, and exiting Life self, but to do with thee One that IS Who 'I' really am. I may have needed an intelligent species like the human being and the amazing brain within that species to fully SEE and UNDERSTAND Who I really am, but I am certainly NOT a human being. i, however, am.
This seemingly contradiction in nature partly SHOWS exactly how the Mind and the brain work.
The Mind KNOWS, whereas, the brain THINKS it KNOWS. The amazing ability of the brain to gather and store absolutely any knowledge, including any knowledge that is totally false, wrong, and incorrect, and then "reason" and "justify" that "knowledge" as being correct to support what it already BELIEVES is true, from previous past experiences, is exactly how the brain is so deceptively smart. ALL the stories of good and evil/God and devil ALL happens this way, within human body. The thoughts, from the brain, are devilishly clever and unknowing deceive its own self, to the point that one is completely BLINDED and STOPPED from SEEING the actual and real Truth of things.
The Mind, however, completely and instantly SEES passed ALL of this. But because absolutely human beings do is a result of learning, if a human being has NOT learned/been taught how to LOOK AT and SEE things correctly, for what they ARE, then obviously no person would just KNOW how to do it. ALL things are either learned or discovered. It is ONLY because of past experiences human beings have learned how to do and achieve the things that they have. Any thing newly discovered is NOT because an individual human being who discovered it is more intelligent than another. It is ONLY because of what they human body has previously experienced, which formed the thoughts within it, which when added with other previously formed thoughts, new things are SEEN. Thus the reason WHY human beings keep progressing in a exponential rate of creating new things. From new discoveries come new ideas, and from that new creations.
Discovering and learning just HOW actual quick, simple, and easy it is to CREATE a Truly new peaceful and pollution-free world just NEEDS an OPEN Mind, obviously.
