Unique Self Video No. 4: Without Unique Self, Life is Irrelevant

You don’t need to care about Unique Self enlightenment if you don’t care about having a meaningful life. According to Marc Gafni, speaking in the fourth video teaching in the Unique Self series, meaning is at the heart of what it means to be living in one’s Unique Self.

Marc Gafni:

There is only one great heresy in post-postmodernity: the belief that you are irrelevant. No one can play your part. You have a Unique Gift to give. The world is waiting, needing your Unique Gift. The Divine Force, God (and the God you don’t believe in doesn’t exist)—God as the personal face of essence, God as the Tao, the love-intelligence and love-beauty of All That Is…is seeking a voice.

Unique Self Video No. 3: Reclaiming Obligation

Unique Self is “purpose” in an Integral World Spirituality context. Dr. Marc Gafni speaks to this side of Unique Self in the third installment in the Unique Self Video series.

What does it mean to answer the call?

To answer the call is to live a values-driven life, a purpose-driven life. It’s to incarnate the values of your life in the unique and gorgeous way that you are able to, that only you are able to do. To do so is to fulfill your Unique Obligation.

When we hear the word “obligation” in our post-postmodern context, we cringe. It makes us contract. We feel like we spent so many years in therapy getting beyond the obligations that violated us. But actually the only genuine freedom is the freedom to fulfill your Unique Self. Anything else is a form of slavery.

Unique Self Video Teaching No. 2: Answering the Call

UniqueSelf.com’s video introduction to Unique Self continues with Part 2.

“To answer the call is to respond to the call that lives in you, as you, and through you, of your Unique Self. The unique individualized expression of essence that is you calls you, invites you to find your vocation—the claiming of your unique voice in the world. To find a voice that is yours, not imitative, you have to inhabit your Unique Perspective.”

Unique Self Video Teaching No. 1: Core Principles

“Unique Self is the understanding that you are at the level of essence – not merely at the level of social, psychological, and cultural conditioning – you are ultimately unique, you are an infinitely unique expression of All-That-Is, an expression that never was, is, or will be ever again. That uniqueness of essence is your Unique Self.”

With those words, Marc Gafni began to present the Unique Self teaching for a series of 20 free short educational videos. For the full videos including transcripts, see the UniqueSelf.com Video Blog.
