Beyond the subpersonalities: the real self, the higher self and the soul
It must have been obvious that all the way through this discussion, we have been avoiding a certain area. It is now time to give that area some due attention.
What we have been avoiding is the whole question of whether there is anything beyond the subpersonalities. We have left it ambiguous as to whether there is such a thing as the Real Self, or the Higher Self (Transpersonal Self, Greater Self, Deeper Self, Inner Self, Self with a capital S, and so on), or whether there is such a thing as the soul.
