first we need to examine the personality. the word comes from the latin word persona which means mask... huh?! so having a strong personality means that our mask is very strong.
everyone around glorify the personality. we rush to satisfy its whims and desires. and somehow it seems that the more we feed it the more we are hungry and tiered so what to do ?
in case you are wondering the personality is the lower self that takes a person for a dirty ride and the poor fella end up demagnetised and depleted.
i feel its still not clear what the personality is so why not investigate it a little more.
it has control over our the lower trinity of physical body (will), astral body (heart) and mental body (mind)
the disciples task is to be vigilant and realise when his personality is manifesting itself through him. how to spot it ? scratching
its easy... every thought inspired by it is selfish, cruel and frankly reckless and out of control.... you know what i mean right...it delight it self in dissonance and disharmony and it can't stand silence :town:
i must warn you if you feel like being a champion and want to fight it headstrong you will fail. you can at max starve it, and you should( through abnegation and self mastery), if you exterminate it like all those faux illuminé you will lose all vitality and drive because it inspires sensuality, greed and fear into you to persuade you to get what it wants and its never in your favour.
so it must be left alone and it must step down from your command centre. stop listing to its advices and notice that its advices are not in your interest
so what to do ? well luckily you have your higher self that is your individuality it too has control over your higher trinity which makes up you casual body (higher mind), your buddhic body (higher heart) and atmic body (higher will).
so far i found that we have six different bodies that make the two trinities
your higher self always inspire you with the loftiest thoughts and emotions.
it dwells permanently with the creator of heaven and earth in perfect harmony and light. it is your sponsor in heaven and your gardian angel. it watch over you and protect you at all time,
how to spot it ? its always disinterested generous and inspire beautiful thought full of light and feelings full of love. when you achieve inner silence it will speak clearly to you and will reveal your future to you. it always think of accomplishing the will of the most merciful creator for the good of humanity. it inspires you to help your neighbour and love him for you both share the same collective individuality that is the holly spirit.
the trouble is that the personality is so wild and loud that it mask the individuality.... aha... and you wonder why you feel so isolated from the whole cosmos it is because the system want to keep you busy feeding your personality until you end up having and astral body heavier then a pink elephant.
so all you have to do it to distinguish which thought and feeling are inspired by your individuality and which are not.
it won't be easy in the beginning because its like stoping a fast train... it takes sometime. so the best way is to always distinguish what your higher self is communicating to you.
