Not-Self

“Non-Self” does not point to acts of selflessness… rather it means “Not Me”

Selflessness leads a person to be good… However, good isn’t that good, because it isn’t the middle. A good person loves himself/herself, doesn’t like to be called bad, s/he is unable to accept evil, let alone have compassion for it and above all, haven’t let go of self. In the eyes of good, there is evil. So it’s Star Wars all over again and guess what… it never ends. If you wish to walk the path to Buddhahood, selflessness is important, as well as selfishness. The Buddha did not only discover good, bad, black, white, right, wrong, male, female, etc… he found the middle path to them all.
