I can observe my own thoughts.
This means that I am not the one I think I am.
I am something separate from my thoughts.
Similarly, if you insult me I feel hurt
and if you flatter me, I feel proud.
I can observe my own ego reactions.
This means that I am something separate from my ego.
I can also observe my bad habits, my poor self-esteem,
my stupidity, my irritation
and the stories I create about the world and myself.
This means that I am something separate from my bad habits
my poor self-esteem, my irritation and my stupidity.
A part of me is stupid; a part of me gets irritated
and I have many of bad habits
but this is not me, the one I am
my real self.
Are you following?
You are not the one you think you are.
You are someone or something else.
Isn’t this a strange thought?
Buddhists and Hindus believe that
this part of us is reincarnating, I don’t.
Christians and Muslims believe that
this part goes to heaven, or hell.
I believe that this part of me will disappear when I die.
