I have in these posts suggested various methods to implement this change. Everything from turning your will and you life over to the care of your true Buddha nature, surrendering your ego to its care, saying, "Not me!" to all your negative feelings and perceptions, shining light and love on your trauma, to burying your old tortured soul and mind with compassion.
But even with all of that work, the mind of the old me still lurked there, waiting for an opportunity to express itself. It would not be denied. And it would sneak up on me with no warning.
Most recently, however, i have an expanded take on the new me. It is not just that the Buddha nature, my divinity, is inside me . . . it is me, it is my substance. That force is what drives all the good that I do in my life. It is the source of my supply.
With this expanded concept of my self, I am becoming more aware of all the abundance in my life and around me and radiate the light that is my true Buddha nature, my divinity. Thus giving my mind, the old me, less opportunity to assert itself. This is another example of the benefit of changing the direction of your energy flow (see my post of that title).
