Your True Self is not who you think you are. You are not who others think you are either.
Both are an illusions created by your mind.
Only when you know and live as your True Self will you find happiness - effortless eternal happiness regardless of circumstances.
Watch the short video and discover your way into true happiness - the way that works. Now, it is not easy, at first. It is foolproof, though -iff you choose to silence your Commentator (that little voice in your head) and start living in the now.
You only live in the now. You can only make changes in the now. Your mind, however, wants to keep you in your past or future for control so that change stays just out of reach.
Read or listen to the book for details on how to know who you REALLY are and how to stop the mind chatter that tries, incessantly, to run you.
When you live from your heart, stop all the thinking and ruminating and simply - and powerfully - live from your heart, then your life will suddenly open to a new horizon where everything works easily.
The ego mind, trying to maintain control over you, can convince you to ignore your heart.
Therein lies the basis of fears, doubts and relationship disconnects, mostly from self, that lead to emotional, physical and spiritual challenges of all sorts. No exceptions.
