Often times when we hear self-Reliant we think that means we can only depend on ourselves and to a degree that is true. However the self we choose to rely on, is up for debate.
We have a choice we can either choose our little guy, which is the self that we have made this self is made up of environmental factors, patterns, and social constructs.
We also have the choice to become reliance on our I am presents or our higher self this is what the divine created. This is the truth the little eye it’s just a mask that we wear to cover over this. I am(ness)that we are. When we choose to become reliance on it, and it’s guidance and viewpoint life takes on a whole new dimension and meaning.
