The problem of egotism has long been recognised, so why does it sometimes have such a hold over us? Why do we hope in vain that others will love and respect us, if we submit to their domination?
This book provides answers by looking at both sides of the human equation; revealing what drives egotism and why we may unknowingly be attracted to it.
The solution to these issues, referred to throughout the text, rests on the choice to free our attention in the moment. As we learn to trust it, not only are our actions more conscious, but our fulfilment is assured.
The Liberated Self is free to download on Saturday July 25.

I was born in 1955 in New Zealand and although I spent most of my childhood there, my family moved to England and Australia on two separate occasions. We settled in Sydney Australia, where I completed my secondary education. I had no clear idea about what to do with myself after leaving high school, so, like my brother I studied English Literature at Macquarie University. Afterwards, despite obvious creative leanings, I worked in various positions such as medical assessor, storeman/packer and taxi driver. Yet I had a desire to discover just who I was and what I really wanted to do with my life. This led me to pursue self development in the 1980’s and 90’s. I also took up art, photography and more recently writing. I had a profound insight into my own personality (as a natural “introvert”) in 2004, but it has taken the intervening years for me to understand its implications sufficiently to write “The Liberated Self”. My intention is to help other people discover just who they are beyond their ego, or narrative self, so that they may create ‘that thing’ that is uniquely their’s to offer the world.
