I am a human being.
Is it true?
I can find where it feels true, yes.
Sure it’s true?
It’s an assumption.
What happens when I take that thought to be true?
I feel I am a human.
I am identified as a human being.
I identify with everything I see as human.
I experience myself as an object in the world.
I was born and will die.
I need what humans need, they become absolute needs.
I get caught up in the struggle.
What am I afraid would happen if I didn’t have that belief?
I am afraid I will be seen as weird.
I am afraid I – this human being – wouldn’t function.
Who would I be without that thought?
See the human as happening, just anything else.
I am not a human being.
Hm. Well, I don’t really know.
I find that everything human happens within me, just as anything else.
What I am seem to more be that which this human – and anything else – happens within and as.
My thinking is a human being.
Yes. For me, human being only exist within thought. I cannot find it outside of thought.
There are of course sensations, sounds, sight, taste, smell that thoughts may label “human” but in themselves, they are just sensations, sounds, etc. – and that too is a label.
When the thought “I am a human being” is believed, there is identification with that thought. The mind makes it appear very real. It feels real. Everything gets filtered through that identification.
