To clarify yesterday’s post, in which I stated that your ‘self’ does not exist:
There is no thinker behind the thoughts in your head.
You are not separate from the totality of existence.
You are a part of experience, along with everyone & everything else.
It is not ‘you’ versus the rest of the world.
It’s important, from birth, that we create the concept of the self in order to be autonomous and survive …
… but we must never forget that we created the concept.
The true state of things that underlies all of our thoughts is that we are not actively creating them.
They are simply a part of our experience; not the result of our actions or will.
