Problems are held differently
I think, that in the end it is all paradox. I find that the problematic personality remains where he belongs, out there and not here where there is only Empty Clarity, the problem and stress-free zone. In this sense, then, with seeing, myself as a person does disappear, but only from the spot where he never was anyway. As a result, my life and it's problems continue on, but somehow they are held differently than before, within a context of spaciousness, which allows them to come and go with a lightness, compassion, and lack of clinging (and with humour even!) that would not be possible from the third-person perspective alone. It is also true that some problems do just simply fall away with seeing, and others transform. Nevertheless, the rule for me is "There are no rules, just look and then see what happens". And then everything in the end, at the deepest level, is all right. C.
