The individual ‘I’ exists only as thought,
a conceptual separation from One.
Personality exists as colour in a rainbow,
always an expression of the entirety.
Sap, sweet on the tongue,
carries its tree-ness.
Bread, newly baked,
suffuses its loaf-ness in air.
❝ The body’s movements are confounded with ‘I’ and misery is the result. Whether the body works or not, ‘I’ remains free and happy. The ajnani’s* ‘I’ is the body only. That is the whole error. The jnani’s** ‘I’ includes the body and everything else. Clearly some intermediate entity arises and gives rise to the confusion.❞
