The aspect of the self that one should concentrate on, is knowing ones’ self above all things. Mastery over the self, leads to mastery over life. To know one’s mind and have mastery over its emotions desires and needs will help the human experience be filled with a conscious willingness instead of an unconsciousness neediness. To know one’s body and master its functions will allow the human experience to be born of that which limits ailments and optimizes function. When function is optimized the ageing process remains in balance rather than consuming one’s existence in the later part of the human experience.
In all things the nature of one’s self is revealed. In every moment of every day one can be aware of the human experience and know the nature of the self. Allow all experience to go through you not become you. In this, no experience has power over you, rather you now remove yourself from its grip and discover the true I. The purpose of the attribution of life is to have the human experience. When you become the experience you gather remnants into the soul that you must now learn how to discard. When the remnant is discarded it no longer tarnishes the soul. The soul is pure.
