Denying the Self

"There is no forgetting of ourselves but in the finding of our deeper, our true self—God's idea of us when He devised us—the Christ in us. Nothing but that self can displace the false, greedy, whining self, of which most of us are so fond and proud. And that self no man can find for himself...'but as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God.'"
- George MacDonald
