This short audio presentation by Dr Denis McBrinn and narrated by Sara Dylan, is designed to bring a clear and understanding of what being true to yourself means, and to lead you gently into reflection on how your true self can bring clarity to your daily living and the realisation that: To be true to others, you must start by being true to yourself.
Once you are true to yourself, you’re also true to other people.
"May the True, Higher Self Within — Always Guide You" Krishna
Our true self is the soul of being. It is the part of us not defined by: ego, status, job, role or function.
It is our evolving higher self that seeks to rise above our basic instincts.
It represents the blue print for the realisation of what we can become. Our true self is the "silence" within that calls us to live our best possible lives.
As young children, we instinctively hear this inner call with great clarity. We live joyfully in the present moment and laugh and smile, much more than adults.
But as we grow up, worldly matters arise and the ego instinctively develops as part of survival.
We then learn to use psychological defences to protect ourselves from the harsh, competitive world.
