Better consciousness of Spirit overcomes consciousness of self

Since my work does not permit me to attend the Wednesday evening testimony meetings, I am humbly and gratefully submitting my testimony in writing.

My parents were deeply religious people, but they believed in a personal God, and my early religious training consisted largely of fearing and worshiping matter. A constant fear persisted with me all through my school days. My train of errors then included selfishness, self-pity, self-justification, self-righteousness, and an extreme case of self-consciousness—I was always imagining that people were trying to oppress or hurt me.
