A Segmented Self 

Life is continuous until one day it’s not. It’s broken up into segments because of the attachment to self. Without this attachment, the beauty of life unfolds as one’s segmentation of it falls away.

The real cause of any issue one has with what happens in life is not with what actually happens, but how we attach a self to life’s occurrence and make it into segments of events. As long as one exist in their current form every moment of every day is a life occurrence. So what makes life become segmented? It becomes segmented once it’s labeled and attaches a self to it. This transformation from an occurrence to segmented events happens because of who it is that’s doing the labeling. If one’s self didn’t label life it would still occur, it just wouldn’t be segmented. It would just be a continuous occurrence without a self attaching to it and giving it the transforming energy it needs to be segmented.

This self seems to cause so many issues, but it’s only the attachment to it that’s the real cause of our issues. Life occurs regardless of the self, but what attachment does is make it into segmented events by isolating it and making it personal. Life is neutral until it’s attached to, then it becomes an event that’s all about the self. Without self isolated events don’t happen, life just occurs. I’m not insinuating a self exist or not, all I’m saying is the attachment to self is at the root of all issues and if one wants to be free of issues, one will have to be free of the attachment to self.

You will have to investigate how this is done, it can’t be done for you. But understand this, until you know your self and how it’s at the root of making life segmented, there will never be freedom and there will always be issues because life will always be broken up into segments of events. Life occurs even when an individuals existence is no more, it’s when one exist and attaches a label that’s derived from self that one will have issues with a life that occurs regardless if you exist or not. Life isn’t partial to individual existence, only the attachment to self is. Every isolated event only happens because of our attachment to self, but without self life still occurs, its just not attached to so the beauty of it is allowed to unfold.
