If you are to recreate yourself anew, so you can experience the naturally successful you – you must be willing to die of the old you. That’s the hard part; letting the old you go.
A powerful king decided to build a new castle. He declared that it must be completed in three years, and it would be done according to his rules:
Rule 1: the new castle is to look exactly like the old one, but with brand new stone and mortar and shiny new stain glass windows.
Rule 2: The new castle is to be built on the exact same site as the old castle.
Rule 3: The old castle was not to be torn down until the new castle was completely built and ready to move into.
Therein lays the dilemma of the human mind. It wants to work with you to recreate yourself anew so you can create a brand new life for yourself. BUT, BUT, BUT, it doesn’t want to let go of the old you until the new you is recreated and fully functioning.
To experience a fresh, new, successful you, it is absolutely essential that you be willing to allow the destruction of the conditioned self so the construction of a new self can begin.
