The Material Self vs. The Castaway Self

“The material world offers “see, touch, smell, hear, and taste.” They can be useful, or they can be harmful or a little blend of both. Perceptive things to grasp, to understand. Basic levels of the human condition. 101 Human Beings.

The understanding oneself? Now, we’re reaching that other self, the one layered by imperfection. That other Self-cast in some remote island, exiled & lost for no one to find. The five senses are now strictly for survival — the inevitable battle between the Material Self and the Cast Away Self. The whole parts of you fight. Even the fragmented ones too.” Ana P. Rose 🌹2019

  1. Every human has four endowments – self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change. ~Stephen Covey
