Your egoic story can be taken away by the circumstances of life. Your Unique Self story can never be taken away from you.
Ego can be taken away from you. Unique Self can never be taken away from you.
In his book Your Unique Self Dr. Marc continues with a beautiful, very personal, and deeply touching story, which shall be reserved for its readers. Another example for this would be the story of the great Rebbe of Piaseczno, who has found and lived his Unique Self story in the midst of the greatest destruction, so beautifully told by Dr. Marc in this video series.
For the conclusion of our series on the distinctions between Unique Self and Ego, it remains to be said: It is time to put it all to work in our daily lives, in our personal Unique Self stories…
And in all our striving and yearning that is an essential part of waking up and growing up to our full realization of our Unique Self, let’s never forget that in essence, Unique Self is who we truly are and always have been. So, in a way, we can relax into our own everlasting being and becoming. Uniqueness and Oneness are all around as well as within us–for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. To awaken to our infinitely gorgeous Unique Selves simply means to become conscious of that and to realize it in our own being–and in the world.
To show up as Unique Self means–as Dr. Marc so often reminds us–to incarnate as the Personal Face of Essence, of the Love-Beauty and Love-Intelligence of the Cosmos, to give our Unique gifts, and to respond to an authentic need that we are aware of in our world. It means to “Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself,” to see the neighbor even in the stranger, to become outrageous lovers, and to write outrageous loveletters to the universe.

Let’s finish this series with Rumi:
Come, come, whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving.
It doesn’t matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times.
Come, yet again, come, come.
