Uncovering Recovery: The Shifty Self, Part 2

Uncovering Recovery: The Shifty Self, Part 2

“The “less” I become, the “more” I become.  The less I focus on protecting, puffing up, or advancing my small self—my egoic self made of my character defects and deluded into thinking it is actually separate from other selves—the more I identify with, participate in, and expand into, other persons and other modes of being.   The more I “lose my life” the more I “find” it, in greater form.”
