The way I see it is the following. When ones goes within, one goes into the psyche, the ego being the impulse driver of the psyche, the psyche creating a mirage of sorts blocking us from experiencing elements of the Self. I associate the Self with higher self or expanded states of being.The self lives in a psyche and so when one goes internally, one is not going into the self but into the psyche in which the self is housed.
Imagine a security guard at night searching a warehouse; the security guide is looking around with a flash light device. He can only see the things he flashes his light on to so he shines his way; he stumbles upon the things he can’t see with his flash light. The light itself is the ego awareness, the security guard the” I” shining light into the warehouse that is the psyche. The psyche becomes difficult to decipher since there is only partial light shining into it by the ego, this makes one unable to perceive that there is something more outside the warehouse. When a better light illuminates it develops the psychic potential, (found by intention beyond the scope of the psyche) the link between the psyche and the Self, or the warehouse and what is outside of it. Doing this requires intimate knowledge of the working parts of the inner you. There is no way around it, you have to face yourself.
These states outside the warehouse are the higher states of being, boundless or unlimited states and can take astral forms and undefined forms. In these special states one experience’s elements or states of the Self, these are nonlinear states of being that are experienced as glimpses or insights because of its nature.
Imagine the ground or the dirt being the Self, the life bringer, and the seed of a plant being the psyche that will grow into a plant or a baby going into adulthood. The pant can live its entire existence without realizing anything else, but itself.
Core-Self to me sounds good, or True Self sounds good too.
Boundless-Self sounds nice
To confuse things further here is a bit of Existential philosophy, the subject in general is very interesting.
The Self is born, but the ego is made – Edgar Edinger
Personally I would change this up and say. “The psyche is born within the Self and the ego made” But then again I am not certain how he was using the terms.
“We are divided within; we are not a whole being within. We have the imperial self and then this thing called the ego, the ego being a construct of physical existence.” Michael Tsarion
“We can understand another human being only as we see what he is moving toward, what he is becoming; and we can know ourselves only as we “project our potential in action”. Edgar Edinger
The Existential Trinity – Existential Philosophy - The idea that we are 3 human beings at once
Umwelt – (“The world around you. “biological World & Environment)
Mitwelt – (“The With-World. “Society or community)
Eigenwelt – (“The Own-World. “Relationship with Oneself - inner being)
“Your body is an object of subjective thought, so the humans being mind and the act of perception nucleates the subject and object dichotomy. So weather any other teachers, any other gurus or any other techniques, even despite the fact that you may not even know this, you are in fact a transcended being that has nucleated opposites, when you know it, it helps.” - Michael Tsarion.
“In order to adjust to the Mitwelt, we don’t really do it as an imperial self, we do it as a pseudo self, so we have to dong a masquerade, we play an act a performance in order to adjust; there is the creation of the pseudo-self the actor. That pseudo self is a counterfeit self, and the ego or what we refer to as the ego, is basically the operating system, the engine behind it, that does meant you blame the ego, the ego is just instructed to do. Cursing or denouncing the ego is a sign of false teachers…” Michael Tsarion
I have being doing a bit more reading and updating http://www.astralvoid.com I amt thinking about releasing you tube videos soon to generate more interest. Most people get this kind of information via you tube. Better I adjust or my website and the content within could become unknown.
Have a great day!
