Self Abidance - Renouncing The "I" You Believe Yourself To BeJun 30, 2021
Did you know that Self-abidance does not mean renouncing material objects, personal desires, or mental goals?
You can renounce all of these things but if it’s coming from a lack of understanding of what self-abidance truly is, then mind will continue to remain attached to all of these things and suffer their absence, along with suffering the spiritual practice itself.
What you need to renounce instead is the “I” that is invested in these things. You must renounce the personal identity you take yourself to be, for whom these things are of ultimate importance and reality. And renouncing is the same as seeing the unreality of the personal self - It is not a denial of the personal self. It is simply seeing it as not myself.
