Self Beyond Words

Without the need for labels and stories of self there’s existence beyond words. This is where one will be free from the attachment to self and without this attachment you can be your true self…

If everything that’s done is based in the attached self doing it one must keep doing to keep this self whole, but this attached self that needs to be keep doing is never whole. The attachment to self is what keeps one entrapped to their own created suffering. Sit with this next part and see exactly where is this attached self that is so adamantly defended; if you lost an arm there would still be existence. How about both arms and legs, now take every function away expect for the mind, let’s just say that remained intact. There is still existence, and even if you lost your mind there would still be existence, you just wouldn’t be aware of it, so what part of your attached story is you? The limbs, or the story of the loss of them, the mind, or the story of the loss of it; there wouldn’t be a story if there wasn’t a mind.

There’s nothing to pinpoint where the self is except how it’s conjured up by the mind. This isn’t to say there isn’t a self, but what part of the made up story is really this self that is attached to? What part of the attached story makes you complete or incomplete? In my case there’s the role of husband, father, son, brother and so on or my job title or my writings, all of these things exist, but they’re only an attached story of self. You may ask who are you or anyone for that matter without their story, but without the attachment to labels and stories of self there’s existence beyond words. This is where one will be free from the attached self and without this attachment is when one can be their true self…
