• dozens of different selves within him, many of them contradictory to
    others. Self A takes over, is replaced a moment later by Self B, which in
    turn is replaced by Self C. We usually refer to this as a change in mood or
    attitude, but it is helpful to see it as the temporary domination of one
    self over the others. A man says something he thinks is clever, but later
    regrets it. Two selves were involved. A woman is highly enthusiastic over a
    project today, but abandons it tomorrow. This is because two contradictory
    selves were in charge on different days.

    Man fails to see these contradictory selves, consequently, he is torn left
    and right in confusion and error. It is as if a dozen seamen claimed in
    turn to be the captain of a ship. One grabs the wheel and turns the ship
    south, but he is knocked aside by another claimant who switches to north.
    Each grabs the wheel only long enough to be shoved away. No wonder the ship
    gets nowhere!

    But self-union is possible. Everything in this book works for
    self-captaincy through self-unity. Start by being aware of disunity. See it
    clearly in yourself. Your awareness of the confusion will restore your
    clear command."
