This book’s purpose is to be a guide for you…
and a sort of practical do-it- yourself manual that is easy to learn from and follow.
In it I describe a journey that contrasts two realities you can create for yourself. One reality defaults to the conditioning of the acquired self and the other is built from the uniqueness of your authentic self.
My intention is to give you a heading and a bearing, to allow you to set a course that will direct you and take you on your own personal journey of self-discovery. Along the way my hope for you is that you will find the keys to your own kingdom – keys that unlock the doors to your own potential and uniqueness and your own true authentic self.
Along the way you will encounter all sorts of obstacles, pitfalls and traps. What you will, however, come to recognise is that these are merely your own inner demons, and your self-limiting projections; these are the negative forces and default reactions that you have acquired along the pathways of your life so far. They become forms of conditioning. I use a concept called your acquired self to collectively describe this conditioning and succumbing to negative forces and limitations. And they are your own personal dragons that need to be slain by you. To do this you have to find the resources within yourself that give you the know-how, tools and techniques and the courage to overcome yourself and get out of your own way. In this way you can fight against your own conditioning and deserve the right to access your authentic self. So this book is intended to guide you along your way. Once you start along this intention, then step by step, you begin to return to your true authentic self. These are the keys to your kingdom.
Every day in every way you get better and better.
