For instance, when I left the Church I had to get up into the pulpit and denounce myself. I had to admit to adultery and the failure of my marriage. And I relished the situation hugely. It was like watching an actor. I thought, "what a good show he's putting on."
All the world's a stage. And the play is not that important. The life and death situations are not that important.
And who is the self that does the judging? I would like to think it was the true Me, the eternal Me, but I know there are other explanations.
