The Person

Are you saying the person does not exist?

As an entity it does not exist. As a network of present thoughts and emotions associated with a body yes, of course it exists. We would not be having this conversation if that was not the case.

We call the person “I” for purely practical purposes, so that we can experience life on the physical plane. That does not imply or mean at all that “I” is an actual entity. That is an assumption; a basic error of judgement humans experience which, at some point, propels spiritual work to initiate. It is the mother of all misunderstandings.

The person is one of the many objects that appear in, and arises out of the Consciousness that We Are.
