The lower ego, which is the product of thought in the brain, thinks it is the real self and exists in fear of losing its identity - it is afraid of meeting its death, although that is inevitable. In my blog of 29 Nov 2015 (http://www.solarancestor.com/weekly-blog/-death-before-dying-way-of-the-iatromantis ) I spoke of the concept of ‘death before dying,’ and this correlates with the words of Eckhart Tolle in The Power of Now (P.38): “Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to ‘die before you die’ – and find that there is no death.”
The reason so many people are frustrated in their attempts to manifest their desires using the Law of Attraction, as outlined in the successful book & movie, The Secret, is that they are following the whims of their false sense of self – their lower ego – instead of connecting to their Solar Self to reveal their true innermost desires. You don’t so much attract what you want, as what you believe in your heart. In this regard, like attracts like. First of all: Know Your Self!
