The Yoga of Self-Mastery

This is the chapter where the Bhagavad Gita introduces the idea that there appears to be two selves in the human being. There is a lower self of tends to look at everything through a very tiny and limited lens of "me", "I am happy", "I am sad", People love me", people are ignoring me" and the gravitational pull of "this small me" is quite powerful and so all that we experience passes into this gravitational pull and it is quite hard to see the world in any other way, through another person's eyes, another's perspective, but perhaps most tragically, it blinds us to ourselves, to our Higher authentic selves which tell a very different story about the world, a story which is much larger, with much greater perspective, one that allows us to love and feel compassionate in a much deeper way and to find wisdom.
