The Real Story
Because you find the temporal to be more interesting than the eternal, you have identified with the flute through which the One makes music, rather than with the One Itself. Therefore, your love affair with the momentary keeps you ensnared in the web of self consciousness.
Every story is a fantasy that supports the self syndrome, that chronic state which excludes things it doesn’t like, controls anything it can overpower, and changes whatever it can manipulate.
However, the ‘real story’ is that there is no person in the body.
There is that which enervates, perceives and experiences. The Conscious Life Energy precedes the three states and is that which vitalizes them.
