There Is One Religion: The Religion of Know Thyself
This book attempts to answer those seemingly ordinary questions of life, with deep factual/practical answers. How do I get to my core being? Who am I? What do I do with my religion, culture, environment, family, gender, childhood etc., and how should I interact with these aspects of my identity? I feel like I have no use for some of these concepts. Do I need to learn about them, and if so, why? How do I put a meaning to my life? What do I do with my emotional baggage? Others say I have it all, so why do I feel empty, sometimes? Why do I have such an emotional pain and can't cure it? I have so many people around me, so why do I feel lonely sometimes? In this book there is a case example of an individual who learned about her culture, religion, and family background to ease her self-growth process. An individual who used her immigration experience as a blessing, considering herself privileged to have had experienced living in two seemingly different countries in her lifetime, she moved from East to West in her teen life. She came to learn that this experience had expanded her mind, and thought in ways that would not have been possible if she had not immigrated. She also learned ways to learn and acknowledge the aspects of her life that she had escaped from, and found the experience fulfilling and uplifting. At the end, finding one's self, we can learn to move above and beyond any conditioning and become selfless. This is where we become a master of our own existence by design and are granted full access to our free will. But it takes effort, discipline and determination to get there.

It comes down to this: If we don't embrace the self, we are destined to live a lonely, detached, unfulfilling life. But if we learn to embrace it in the right way, we can live a life of joy and connection. The crux is to understand that we are worthy of love. From the standpoint of this sense of worthiness, we are then able to open ourselves to one another and to the work that is before us.
