The one who is ‘me’

Once there is ‘I’, ‘mine’ arises, establishing possessions or territory of the self.

With these two perspectives in place, all the operations of mind come into play.

They create the full range of human emotions and thoughts. This is the stuff of everyone life-story, ‘the story of myself’.

The basic identity of the main character is not questioned. We are completely certain there is an owner, a knower, an enjoyer, a controller, a seeker, and a finder – and that one is ‘me’.
