Searching for the self
Carol Ruth Knox, (excerpt) from the book, The Path of God, edited by Dr. Coy F. Cross II:
Let me take a look now at some of the ways in which we act duality out. We may set out to discover our “self.” My sense is that in that search we are trying to discover this wonderful self so that we can hold on to it, define it, so that finally we might come to know who we are. As if the self is something one can hold on to, define and put into concrete.
