"I AM HE AS YOU ARE HE AS YOU ARE ME AND WE ARE ALL TOGETHER" BEATLES' EXPRESSION OF ONENESS. ("I AM THE WALRUS")
COMING TO BE YOUR ESSENTIAL SELF
At this point in the journey you KNOW the distinction, Ego self and Essential Self. The purpose of the journey is for you to know this distinction well enough to choose who you want to be BEING. (The definition of Becoming: the process of coming to be something or passing into a state.) Becoming your Essential Self is a process. With practice you will be able to let go of the Ego self and "come to be" your Essential Self. It is a process of moving from "knowing" to "BEING." Practice begins in the section, (Transformational Games).
Who you would be BEING as your Essential Self is derived from the context of Oneness in the transcendent energy field of the World Beyond Ego. In this journey, we are looking at the Essential Self functioning at the energy level of LOVE.
(This is a concept presented by David Hawkins in his book, TRANSCENDING THE LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS. Hawkins writes about LOVE as an energy field at level 500 (based on his model of energy levels, page 247). "The 500 level is characterized by the development of an energy field that is progressively unconditional, unchanging, and permanent. It does not fluctuate because its source within the person who LOVES is not dependent on external factors. LOVINGNESS is a way of being and relating to the world and is forgiving, nurturing, and supportive. LOVE is not intellectual and does not proceed from the mind; LOVE emanates from the heart."
Remember!!!! The purpose of this journey is to enable you to see the world in a different way, not the truth, NO, not the truth--but rather, a different window to look through.
To reiterate, a paraphrased statement by David Hawkins: the energy state experienced by the Essential Self is not the result of thinking ABOUT reality, but rather, the state of BEING from which REALITY IS PERCEIVED.
The following is a partial list of the Ways of Being of the Essential Self distinct from the Ego.
Unconditional Love has many facets. All of the facets make up the whole. Or you could say, Unconditional Love has many frequencies, like radio stations on a frequency band. (described below)

Coming to BE your Essential Self involves shifting out of the Ego domain and stepping into the energy field of the World Beyond Ego. Following are Ways of Being of the Essential Self. BEING is an energy frequency that is present in your body. And, when you are BEING Compassionate, you emanate compassion.
(Remember these Ways of Being are NOT dependent on the circumstances.) They are where you come from as your Essential Self.
The ability to be understanding and have concern for another's feelings.
"Being with" what is, without judgment.
Showing willingness to allow the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with.
Recognizing the Essential Self in others, separate from their Egoic action(s). Forgiveness is not about forgiving the action, but recognizing the Essential Self in another and forgiving their Ego, "for it knows not what it does."
Giving money, goods, time, acknowledgments, or whatever is needed.
An inner feeling of thankfulness, appreciation.
Having access to an energy state where creative ideas, solutions, and inventions exist.
Awareness of what one feels to be true without conscious reasoning.
Accepting, calm; OK with what is; connected to the Oneness.
Full of joyful energy.
Friendly, giving, and considerate.
Filled with spirit, divine energy; intense enjoyment, possibility.
Perceiving all people as equal.
Helpful, supportive and encouraging.
Not excluding any person or section of society. Sees everything as part of the whole.
The act of noticing and expressing something worthy about another.
Acting thoughtfully and consciously, beyond automatic reaction.
WHOLE AND COMPLETE
Safe and healed and whole, connected with Oneness.
Free of the constraints of the Ego.
No need to be right.
No need to discredit another's position.
Free to choose who you are BEING.
