The false self

Here’s a quote from Brennan Manning that speaks to something that I believe God has been trying to teach me in the last several years: discerning the false self that I attempt to “sanctify” or cover by overlaying Jesus on top. Christ wants to enter the raw and unspoken places and know me, and you.

“Living out of the false self creates a compulsive desire to present a perfect image to the public so that everybody will admire us and nobody will know us.”
Brennan Manning, The Rabbi’s Heart
