It is also the individual sense of self but it does not see itself as the center of the universe and does not try and force Reality to it's will. Instead it sees Life / Consciousness as the center and sees itself as an expression of that Consciousness - a vehicle for the Divine, which it surrenders itself to. This personal essence also has likes and dislikes which make it this unique expression of Consciousness. Personal essence does not dedicate enormous effort to pressure Reality and instead allows Reality to flow through it without obstructing it - creating the experience of selfless peace and joy rather than suffering.

By moving with the current of Life, personal essence has far more creative power behind it to solve problems and create a peaceful and joyful experience in it's every day activites.
It's kind of the You that Life wants you to be..!

Like I said, it's really interesting to see we've all moved in more or less the same direction. For me it's a sign that this is quite possibly the "right" direction.
My challenge continues to be: living my understanding. It's as if a part of me (and not just the intellect, gut/heart too) gets the message loud and clear ... and another part of me just keeps doing/feeling what it has done/felt since before the understanding dawned on me. I guess I'm not (yet) walking the talk.
