Adam & the Higher Self

Reposted from The Awakening Website

The Ego and the Id is a prominent paper that was written in 1923 by Dr. Sigmund Freud as an analytical study of the human psyche. It is of fundamental importance in the development of psycho-analytic theory. In his paper, Freud wrote about what he called the ego, the id, and the super-ego.[i]

If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from Heaven. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I Corinthians 15:44-47 and John 4:16-17

From a spiritual perspective, it is your ego that was created as a survival mechanism when you descended in consciousness during the Fall of Man. But your super-ego, your Spirit, is still merged with God. So, as you awaken to this understanding, it is your Spirit who is carrying out God’s Divine plan for you.

Often referred to as your ‘higher self’, your Spirit carries with it the spiritual gifts of clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, claircognizance and intuition. Stored in a quantum state in your DNA, it is the multi-dmensional part of you that never left the Garden. And your sub-conscious mind is the gateway to it.

The man who enters by the Gate is the shepherd of his sheep. The watchman opens the Gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. John 10:2-3

As an information processor, the conscious mind can only process forty bits of information per second. But the sub-conscious mind is one million times more powerful. It is the sub-conscious mind that stores the past, but lives in the present. It is this mind that continuously replays in the present the events that have taken place in the past.

The ego is the one who rants, blames, defends, judges, justifies, whines, doesn’t forgive, never forgets, expects the worst and trusts no one. Dr. Sonia Choquette

The higher self has an entry point into your human energy field.  This point is about an arm’s distance above your head.  You can engage your higher self by ‘sending’ the feeling of gratitude, from your heart to that entry point.

But the first step in connecting with your higher self is to quiet the ego – the lower self who lives in your sub-conscious. If we clear from our sub-conscious any energies that we no longer need, we can connect to our higher self and reunite with our Spirit.

In Zen, a duality between Higher Self and Lower Self is not made because – if you believe in the Higher Self, this is a simple trick of the Lower Self. Alan Watts

    Mr Watts, in his explanation of the “Duality” (the “split”) between the Higher Self and the lower self, seems to assume that all lower selves do NOT know their Higher Self, that when any “consideration” of the duality takes place it is evidence of the the un-knowing, because when one truly knows there is no longer a consideration of duality, one then just is.

    That suggestion is often made by those who really think that they have achieved the ultimate knowing, complete enlightenment … but in truth, it can be as well said that they have only achieved the ultimate level of ego superiority, the highest level of duality where all of those they accuse of being less than themselves, on such a “path of achievement”, are just “fooling themselves” … could it possibly be that Mr Watts is just one such a being ?
