How to Create a True Self for Profit and Pleasure

You are your true self right now. You created your true self by making countless decisions which you believed were ‘best’ for you. And you created your true self by failing to make countless decisions which were then made for you by others, albeit in their ‘best’ interest. When someone says, “I want to find (or be) my true self” (or potential), what she really means to say is, “I want to experience maximum profit, for instance, realness, meaningfulness/truth, satisfaction, pleasure or joy, from being wholly who I am.” The fact is, you are your difference (hence unique self) made real/true by being touched. Obviously, difference can’t be found. It has to be created. Only when your difference (i.e. your self) is activated @100% (i.e. as a whole) do you experience it as absolutely true, because absolutely real. Creating difference and applying it wholly to become whole, real and true is the daily pilgrimage.
