Corona/John is the story / the coat about a self.

Yes, although story sounds a bit 'once upon a time'. :)

This is a kind of conditioned personified perception and we use the word 'self' to describe it because our experience of it is that it has some autonomy/agency.

The human being or "no self" is not the story or the persona - but it just thinks it is that.

I'd prefer we drop the term 'no self' because we want to explore what is here, rather than not-here, or what is rather than isn't, otherwise we'll be chasing ghosts like Scooby Doo. :)

I would go as far to say that the human being is not behind this identifying with an IDEA of who I am. It's more like a conditioned behaviour to see ourselves this way.

So, corona is perfect, because it is a false crown we've adopted as 'Me'.

A story of myself to which we identify without even knowing we have done so, in some cases.

So, we're not interested in whether there is or isn't a self.

What we're interested in is what we are calling 'self' and identifying as - namely, Corona or John. It almost like we are not playing a role, but the role is playing us.

Walk with this some, and share when you're ready.

Much love,
John

Hi John,

Apparently I needed to walk with this some time... I hope you don't mind.

So what I got out of it is that the word 'self' we use to describe it - the conditioned personified perception of me / you.
And that it doesnt really matter to talk about the no self so we can focus on what is here instead of not-here.

Yes, beautiful you point it out that corona is perfect, because it is a false crown we have adopted as Me!

How would you see that the role is playing us?

Thank you so much John!

Hi Corona,

That's fine. I'm busy too.

So what I got out of it is that the word 'self' we use to describe it - the conditioned personified perception of me / you.
And that it doesnt really matter to talk about the no self so we can focus on what is here instead of not-here.

Yes. When we say 'self' we can look at what we mean? Typically it's that we see ourself as a self.
And so we challenge that perception.

Starting off with, what is a self in a nutshell?
Am I this?

How would you see that the role is playing us?

The role has no agency, it's made up, like a paper puppet.
