I would have thought it would have been written this way?
Breathe in, Self Defense
Breathe out, Self development
I personally like that ending better for my own philosophy this week than "No self."
Perhaps a prerequisite to no-self is to know-self.
IMHO, if we seriously look into the learned ego identity its made up of incorporated introjects of our external role models.
Like a car disappears when you take it completely apart, if we know-ourselves we may actually realize there is actually no-self.
But, read it how its most useful and applicable to you.
Thanks for reading and responding.
Any thoughts anyone/
