Lower self – ego, individual self – Higher self – soul, universal self
Meditate on Mascaro’s translation of Mundaka Upanishad, Part three Chapter 1, V1 to 3
“There are two birds, two sweet friends, who dwell on the self same tree. One eats the fruits thereof, and the other looks on in silence.
The first is the human soul, who is resting on the tree, though active, feels sad in his unwisdom. But on beholding the power and the glory of the higher spirit, he becomes free from sorrow”
Take some time to meditate and consider these words. Seek to reflect on your higher self and acknowledge your lower self and how it impacts on your life.
