41. Self-offering

The self-offering of the lower self
Is the self-offering
    Of what we have temporarily accepted
    As our own.
The self-offering of the higher self
Is the self-offering
    Of something which we eternally are
    But unfortunately
    Are not aware of.
Our false life we are claiming as our own.
Our true life, natural life,
    We are not claiming as our own.
The higher life is our true life.
