Attachment to Self

Nothing is the whole of anything unless that’s the label applied, and who does this labeling but the belief of an “I” that only exist because of the delusional attachment to self…

Without an attached label there is no self. You do have a body, but you are not the body. Nothing is the whole of anything unless an attached label is applied and who does this labeling, the belief of an “I“ that only exist because of the delusional attachment to self…
