Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for February 2016
“I was not far down the spiritual road when I became acquainted with what the psychologists refer to as ego and conscience, which I call the lower self and the higher self, or the self-centered nature and the God-centered nature. It’s as though we have two selves or natures or two wills with two contrary viewpoints.
“Your lower self sees things from the viewpoint of your physical well-being only – your higher self considers your psychological or spiritual well-being. Your lower self sees you as the center of the universe – your higher self sees you as a cell in the body of humanity. When you are governed by your lower self you are selfish and materialistic, but insofar as you follow the promptings of your higher self you will see things realistically and find harmony within yourself and others.”
