Actually experiences which appear similar to yours started more than a decade ago for me, that's why I'm concerned, hope you don't make the same
mistakes as I did. One of my biggest mistakes was pretending I'm multiple people, in retrospect because of low selfesteem, some shame of how I've
become maybe even a little powertrip, curiosity. Also it's a known technique that if you want to (mind) control others you first have to get rid of
their sense of self first. Divide and conquer. If anything one should make a strong persona for themselves that one likes and keep working on it to
establish it firmly and then interact with other beings.
Sure you may not willingly, out of free will, search out the bad entities but guess what, they have free will also and they might seek you out some
day, there will be nothing you can do about it unless you start to play their game. Maybe it will not happen at all, but because you meet people on
earth in daily life, might be at a moment when you're off guard or you'll have little defenses if you only have your faith, you must have knowledge
and understanding, a system if you will. If you make up a system that would help you a lot, you can do that now but not once the bad comes knocking at
But enough with the cautions, I'll return to my lurking state

I dont think you need to rid of your sense of self at all....for it is the 'self' that is the instrument for the Spirit within to work through.
I dont believe in 'many' entities....I believe in ONE entity that is perfectly infinite and all things are 'of Thee'. Nothing can be, without Thee.
Not saying that this is a fact for all...but through my experiences I have never been more content about purpose, existence, and me being a 'self'
amongst many other selves'.
Studying the way the mind works helped me too...learning how the body works with the mind and how our bodies react and respond to what is around us.
But I do feel your genuine concern and I thank you for sharing that with me. You care for others...and that is a middle ground Im glad to meet you on.
My best to you
Edit to further on 'thoughts'....most of our every day thoughts are emanated from something that is going on outside of us and we are simply
responding or reacting to it. We may be is a self contemplated mode and thoughts may form through avenues like what we are attracted to through our
personality, what we may fear or worry about, what we desire in life, we may 'pull forward' stored events and brith thoughts of them or we may 'look
forward' and form thoughts for what we need to do or want to do with the rest of our day or the rest of our life even.
For the Spirit to arise and have a avenue to work through, to offer us 'deeper' things to think about...and for it to not have all the filters to work
through like personality, intellect, the 'ego' of what we already 'think' we know....there does need to be some emptying of the cup, some cleansing of
'new working grounds'...which is why things like fasting, meditation, forgiveness, empathy for 'life', and other things help clear a more narrow
passage for the Spirit to show itself through us. We may see the Spirit showing itself through another before we feel it rise and show theeself in us.
All through life, we all are given many opportunities to look at something deeper with a empty cup...but most of the time when we have that
opportunity, our cup is full, so we see with rose colored glasses.
The 'cause' of humans doing 'bad' things....is individuality...which births pride and envy and greed. There is a healthy way to embrace the self and
not hold the self above any other self....but we dont have to rid of the self. Embrace yourself and embrace all others...finding the divine within
all. Being in the flesh...causes us all to have temptations and sometimes give way to things like embracing power, pride, envy, and greed. There is no
reason to blame something outside of the own self for the bad things we do.
The word Namsate that have recently become used alot is a huge stepping stone for mankind.....its a great start to let the divine in you find the
divine in all others. Some live more for things of the flesh and there is understanding why they do this and we should forgive them, for what they do
not know or have not over came yet.
