Let’s pretend for a minute that there is a separate, independently existing You and a “world out there”.
That world is reflecting back to you what you are. It is trying to tell you something. The more your ignore it, or don’t “get it”, the louder and more intense it becomes.
Take “Me” for example. I pride myself in my knowledge. I believe I am always right. I see this in others, this blind belief, ” I am right, you are wrong”. I hate and despise this attitude in others. Why?..because it is “Me”.
It has been quite shocking to discover that I am quite often “wrong”. I am losing my identity, becoming transparent.
Hiding doesn’t work anymore. I am almost transparent.
