The Myth Of Self
Myth: a misrepresentation of the truth.
When consciousness looks around and just sees, no self is present. There is only pure perception or pure consciousness, free of all ills. Self arises when consciousness reverts to memory to identify with an object, creating a story and so solidifying this arrangement. That solidification hardens an illusory self-image.
There is no self. The illusion of self is an attachment to ideas. Throughout life, we build upon this picture, acquiring a formidable idea of ourselves, and inspiring fear or respect through being impressive.
Merely let this self or ego take a back seat and be less dominant.
Gradually, we can dispense with karmic self altogether.
