Going beyond the small self

The small self is who you consider yourself - all of your past experiences, your present desires, thoughts, emotions and future goals and fears. By dissolving all of those beliefs about who you are you can uncover your True Self and begin to merge into the space of pure awareness.

By making a diagram of all your values and feelings you can actually see who you are. One type of diagram is called the personal mandala. Below this post are some posts that lead you through finding your own personal values. There are three major values and each one of those in turn have three personal values. When you figure out which three are your values you have half of your mandala completed. To complete your personal mandala you will need to pick out what you fear the most, how you seek comfort and what gives you pleasure. Fear will be the topic for tomorrow.

So, if you haven't done so already, go on down to the earlier posts and pick your personal values. Keep an open mind and remember there are no good or bad values.
