The resolute identification with the belief in a personal ‘me’ seems obvious … “I am here in the world, separated from others and things - of course I am an individual ‘person’”. Encapsulated within this passive acceptance of person-hood is the constantly simmering angst of ‘guilt, shame and remorse’. These imaginary and painful ideas seem like rock solid confirmations that this ‘me’ exists. “Look at my ‘past” the mind says to itself, “Look what I have done … I am so unworthy of happiness” - echoes subtly and constantly in the deepest recesses of the mind.
To escape these delusional thoughts, the ‘me’ phantom constantly devises ways to ‘run, sedate and distract’ so that the intense fire of these ideas will hopefully be quenched. And yet it is these mind-gremlins from an imagined past in the Grand Dream that eventually bring ‘all’ to their knees where the requisite question is asked: “There must be a better way”. From this anguished cry and through the surrender it fosters, the never-closed-door to Truth swings open.
