How mind and self works

These identities make sense. They feel comfortable.

In contrast, non-identity seems like untenable non-sense. It offers no orientation and feels profoundly uncomfortable.

But as we learn more about the ‘who’ we are dealing with and how reliable this ‘who’ is, we may get a glimpse of the ‘how’ of this ‘who’ – how mind and self works.

This is a fundamental discovery, or rediscovery.

Making contact with this inner property, this body of knowledge, opens the possibility that we could wake up from illusion and stop participating in illusion mind’s vast realm of confusion and suffering.
