Nothing about “you” is personal because there is no person there. New MJ Awakening Blog

tree

It’s not that there has ever been a separate, solid “you.” It’s that the same thoughts have been IDENTIFIED WITH repetitively for many years/decades by the impersonal light of ever-present formless Consciousness.
 
Nothing about “you” is personal because there is no person there. Feelings, yes. Thoughts, yes. Sensations, yes. But an actual separate entity, no.
 
Thus, any rejection of anything that arises is to fight oneself. A self that doesn’t exist. Being is being with whatever arises without judgment.
 
Can you imagine if a tree believed the thought, “I like my leaves, but my bark is so ugly!” The tree would be rejecting a part of it self out of sheer ignorance. However, trees don’t do this. Just humans.
