Remember that, as we said in other lectures, there are two lines in life which we have to walk: the horizontal and the vertical.

The horizontal line is related with what we are talking about here, our physical life, and the personality in which we have to develop certain things in order to survive, in order to gain your daily bread.

The problem is when we come to identify with this. Yes, to develop the personality is a necessity, in order for us to operate in the world, but what must recognize is that this personality is merely a tool, a mask, dust of the ground, that we have to wear. Indeed, the word personality comes from the Latin Persona personae, meaning, “a mask to sound through" as something spoken through and perhaps amplifying the voice.”

Indeed, to identify with this mask and to think that the mask is “who we are,” is wrong.

Study this lecture:

Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5
