“Our True Self Is Our Divinity”
“The Infinite exists potentially in every being,”* writes Lafcadio Hearn. (I think he means that it always exists in every being with the potential to be Known.) “That,” he continues, “is the Reality. The other self is a falsity, – a lie, – a mirage.”
Our True Self is our Divinity, our Buddha-Nature, our Soul. That is the Reality. That is our Deep Unconscious. All other beliefs – the ones that prevent us Knowing this Essential Truth – arise from the mere superficial unconscious, and are but delusions.
