Another way of saying that you are the summation of your other levels of Self, is to say the integration of the other levels of Self ~ for as you need knowledge in this life, you go to other levels of Self for that informtion.
Part of the journey in the Search for Self is to find your levels of Self ~ to actually find out where they are and what they contain for information. When you go into a focusing, you are going into a dimension of Self.
You need no counsel external to Self ~ however, you think you do. You already have the questions and answers ~ you simply need to bring them out of Self, trust in them and trust that you are living in your world as a spiritual being.
