“When you realize that you can leave every self-definition behind and still you are, then you begin to see that these thoughts must not be what you are. In other words, who are you when you are not thinking yourself into existence? Who are you when you give up all thoughts, even the ones that you are not supposed to question, such as, ‘I am a human being. I am a woman or I am a man. I am somebody’s daughter or son.’ You start to see that when you are not thinking yourself into existence, who you have taken yourself to be literally isn’t there anymore. If this ‘you’ can disappear like that and reappear as soon as you think it into existence, how real is it?”
Sometimes I write them, sometimes I share them.
