Nothing, including the death of your body, is going to change who you are.

    Hi Jerry!

    Tell me more about this comment! I may know,
    what you mean, but I am not certain: We are just localised Awareness, and after death we
    are just the same Awareness?? But the localisation is somewhere else, or what?
    All the best,

    Hi Marianne,

    Every day one loses cells that die and it doesn’t change who one is. One may lose organs or limbs and it doesn’t change who one is. One may lose waking consciousness during sleep or anesthesia and it doesn’t change who one is. And one may die and it doesn’t change who one is. That’s where I’m coming from with that utterance.

    We don’t know who we are in a larger sense, and in giving over who we “think” we are we give over “our” control, which is what we essentially learn to do when we fall asleep.

    Being awake requires having rested before it.

    I’m in agreement with you Jay–being awake requires having rested before it. That is why the siesta is a beautiful practice.

    Resting within the body means breathing as a priority over words, listening to simple presence as evident of life in all things, seen as unseen, and giving life to the trees, flowers, subtlety, a road less traveled, with no need of looking back, all sin or error erased, with only innocence to remain in, always, in all ways, as in all.
