OK "I Am" class, please turn to page 87 "Your identity is a composite of your interpretations of every experience you have had since childhood...The actions your ego takes are directly related to this composite identity." I loved the brilliant 6th chapter which is all about the ego and how it works. After years of reading about how we need to ignore and shut down the ego, or park your ego at the door, I'm finding out that is ALL WRONG! Use your ego. One of the most interesting thing that I learned in this book is that your ego will fight tooth and nail to support whatever identity that you have. "The ego is the guardian of the identity." Beautiful. "Whenever your identity is challenged, it's as if an "I am" statement has been put on trial the ego is the defense attorney". So go ahead, and pick those times in your day when you feel uncomfortable, insecure, not good enough or similar. That is what is going on. You have some kind of belief about yourself that is being challenged and your ego is just reinforcing your current identity. And just by simple "I am" statements of what you want to be, you can start changing that and using your ego to help you get where you want to go. I think "I am" statements consciously program your subconscious.
I agree that the earlier chapters are kind of dry, but they contain the material needed to progress further. Great book. Life changing. Get it!
