We think we are experts on ourselves. Nobody could possibly know more about ourselves than we do. But please do not go on Mastermind and choose yourself as your specialist subject!
Our problem is that we get a lot wrong about our self. We identify ourselves incorrectly. Buddha says we are what we identify with. It’s as simple as that. There is a choice. This means we need to stop identifying with the aspects of ourselves which actually undermine our confidence and wellbeing and instead start to identify with our positive qualities and potential. Everyone can do this – but it is not that obvious or we would have already done it ourselves! We need to be more flexible about our positive self and less rigid about the negative one.
The teacher will share Buddha’s special methods to stop focusing on our delusions and putting ourselves down. We can learn how to identify with our own potential, recognise our good qualities and become more confident in ourselves.
