Advanced Essence: The Authentic Self
As we understand and uncover more and more how we have identified with
a false sense of self conditioned by family and culture and how this
identification is based on survival fear, two questions become fundamental:
“Who am I?” and “What is the meaning of my life?”.

Point of Light. The Point of Light is the unique manifestation of the
Absolute, of God, of Primary Awareness, in each of us.
The Point is Being experienced as our true identity.

deep memory of our divine nature shining within.
This light is obscured by the false identity that we call “I” and our
identification with it in order to survive and feel special. This illusion of
being special ends up hiding the reality of being unique.

from the approval of others and become barriers against discovering our
