The Paradox of No "Self" / Have You Lost a Part of Yourself?

The Paradox of No Self

From the highest spiritual perspective, there is no permanent self.

“Self” is just a verbal designation.  A construct we create to identify a conglomeration of thoughts, emotions, sensory experiences, and body parts.  While this is ultimately the truth, a positive and healthy sense of this “illusory” self is the best basis for personal and spiritual evolution.  As paradoxical as it may seem, often you need to find your “self” in order to ultimately realize the truth of no self.

---------
“To thine own self be true.” - Shakespeare

It’s easy to lose a part of yourself as you travel the highways and byways of life.

Have you ever felt that way? Many people do.

Or you suddenly wake up one day and realize you don’t know who you are.  You feel empty. You don’t even like yourself.  You feel like running away.  You want your real self back, but who is that, anyway?
