But what if it is not? What if continuity belongs to core awareness, and isn’t personal at all? What is it that has been wholly present during each thought, each event, each weather change, each knurly feeling, each memory?
Core awareness is the thread that binds experience together, not the imaginary, separate self. That separate self–each thought, each feeling–comes and goes. It slices and dices the beautiful whole and then jumps in to claim ownership for the whole shebang.
