No Such Thing

What is the world? We take our beliefs and assumptions as fact but what IS it?

What are YOU? We take our beliefs and assumptions about ourselves as fact but what ARE YOU?

What the world IS and what you ARE, is the same reality.

ME and WORLD are mental distinctions only. This distinction asserts that the existence of ME and the existence of WORLD are different.

Did you come into existence as something other? Is your existence independent? Finite? Limited?

These questions we must ask, otherwise spirituality is nothing but a fantasy. On one hand our supposed separate existence is held onto tightly. It might be limited but we do what we must to preserve it as long as possible.

On the other hand, is there truly anything to preserve? Are you not existence itself? Isn't the idea of individual existences merely a false idea?

Are you seeking because you want to feel better, or to know the truth of your own Self?

A person is an entity which stands alone, which came into existence, an existence of its own. There is no such thing as a person.
