Being formed in the Image of the Spiritual God means every human possesses a drop of God’s omnipotent—a God likenessthat is a human’s true nature. This harmonious, unifying, unlimited, universal power enables one to link the conceiving, accomplishing, controlling, and creating of all Selfhood things needed for living a Ma’at life. Humans’ Spiritual aspects, dominating in their Private Selfhood, is Worth-oriented. It is orchestrated by its “First Wisdom” instilled with the God Spark prior to ones Earth World birth. First Wisdom is absolute Intelligence which–upon properly developing ones Private Selfhood ingredients—cultivated by ones Pre-birth Emotions–is all one needs to handle life’s very toughest problems. Before teaching their children about any External World Materialism, Ancient Africans totally focused on making them a strong Personal Power “Tree”. First, was on their “packaged” Private Selfhood interlocking componentsof Self-Greatness (Spark of God) “Seed”; then Self-Knowing (Cosmic Organism yoking) "Roots"; then"Trunk" of Self-Faithand Self-Appreciation (whereby one esteems ones Substance and realizes the infinite inside ones finite body); then “Branches/ Leaves” of Self-Trust (awareness of expanding capabilities); followed by Keepings ones Word; Self-Curiosity(driven by what is natural within oneself and what underlies what is natural about oneself); Self-Empowerment (unlimited power sense from prior successes); Self-Respect (honoring ones earned self-worth and self-value traits); Self-Reliance (in charge and control of ones Selfhood, what one does, and the situation by knowing and using what is available); Self-Efficacy (believing one can get any unique job done; “I can do anything that is part of my Mission); and Self-Confidence(Sureness from empowerment). Second are ones Private Self Spiritual Self-Esteem components —fashioners of ones: Self-Identity (ones unchanging "sameness" concerning "Who I Am" and that imparts Self-Respect); Self-Meaning (the Spiritual Self-Greatness standard against which one compares ones Self-Respect); and Self-Love (“ME/WE” as ones Selfhood anchor).
External World things of Value dominate ones Public Selfhood. Ones Private Selfhood Components “Seed” ones Public Self Self-Esteem components of: (a) Self-Concept (ones spotlighted qualities) derived from an individual's essence of a thing when it came into being + the thing's contents which give it a messaged disposition for Right Life Living; (b) Self-Image (ones mentally pictured significant quantitative possessions). From both come ones Public Self: (c) Self-Worth; the home of ones Soul and "Heart"–the source of ones Character and Self-Esteem–the awareness of ones own Selfhood Greatness and Talent; and (d) Self-Value—i.e. ratings of what are seen/known of ones physical "materials" and "Qualities". The concern the nature and degree of ones publicly ranked ways of "Being"/achievements. As determined by the Crowd, its leaders, and oneself, Things of Value are defined as quantitative “Scarce Desirables”—e.g. money, jewels, property, power. Their ranking depends upon how they are assessed by ones Public Self. Acceptance is in relation to the monitored feedback from ones interpreted experiences with other people and by oneself. Nurture (e.g. Socializations born into, ones selected “In-group,” and the Societal Crowd, as with Social Media), plays a powerful role in how ones Private/Public Self are displayed. If one remains ones Real Self, ones listed Private Self entities are a Spiritual Association characterized by an interaction of their individually involved ideas, desires, thoughts, or whatever influences its Association. That Association possesses unrealized potential to be a most dominant Personal Power concerning Self-Improvement—an alone struggle!!!
Emanating out of that Spiritual Association is a like-kind Public Self Association of those listed. Cultivating ones birth-gifts into increasing ‘second nature’ strengths and living by them in a “ME/WE” manner (as in helping those in need through no fault of their own) without fail is called Personal Integrity. Only then can ones Private Selfhood have life’s fundamental “5Ss” of Safety, Security, Self-Confidence, Strength, and Stability. A success trade-off is dedicated hard work and not being fully accepted by the Crowd. A “cracked” Integrity is like a crack in an egg that allows all of ones Personal Power to drain out. If that happens, one becomes a False Self, needing the Crowd to direct ones life and provide support. A successful life is one of continual striving toward achieving “the best me,” in the best Spiritual and Material life one is able to design. jabaileymd.com; JABLifeSkills; Theievoice.com
