Hmm, interesting. I guess maybe part of my problem I think is that I don't know who I really 'Am' I mean I have put on so many false persona's that now trying to find my own identity is an issue. I mean how do you do THAT?




The truth is... you are who you think you are. If you put on many false persona's, that is a part of who you are. You are how you think, act, and feel. There is nothing more.

It was pretty funny though.
Anyway, so 'self' or 'I' is an illusion? Is that what Zen people they mean by that?
We just are. At any moment we just are. Interesting and kind of makes sense.
There is no objective 'self' just different aspects of how we behave.

Bhudda would disagree with this. I've read several of the Dali Lama's books and he suggests that we have to live in the moment in order to be who we really are. The difficult thing about this is that we have to give up everything we think we know about ourselves so that we can just be.

People DO have many different faces, but that is only from fear of being who they really are because of what society thinks will of them. We only have one way we truly behave naturally, it's just that things manipulate us into acting differently, mainly our own emotions and insecurities.

I agree that there is no objective self, everything we think is only an illusion, its in our heads. The real world is right here, in front of your computer. Look around the room you're in. This is the only reality, it's just so difficult to live in it because our minds are continually analysing and comparing. We are constantly somewhere else in our imaginations, but in the moment is where all the peace is and where everything will just flow. If you're worried that you're not being yourself, then you most certainly won't be because of this worry, it causes you to act differently. Becoming aware of the here and now is what zen meditation is all about.

So when your angry your the same as when you are happy? when im angry im usally quiter and tend to be colder to people, when im tired i hardly say anything to anyone but when im happy im more enthusiastic and can be a bit annoying. they are differnt personas created or brought on by mood i wouldent say im not acting like myself thouge. acting differntly around differnt people is what i would class as fake or a persona that is put on for society's sake. but we all do it genrally when we meet new people we want to make a good impression. also i dont think the way you act when you are alone is your real self, its just part of you. We cant just act one way becuse its just not possible, even an animal acts differnt when trying to find/impress a potential mate, is that a fake persona?
So to summirize everything the way we act alone or in differnt social situations is part of our real self the way you act in a social situation is the way you act under slight pressure.

I contradict myself in that but what i mean is if i had to class something as a fake persona etc it would be the way we act when meeting new people.

I guess those are just different facets of 'Us'.
Some of these facets are just more negative than others and dangerous at times (I.E. any facets ruled by fear).
Some are of negative values and some are of positive but all are aspects of who we are and i na way we all share the same ones-and in a way we dont.
We just are. We are the sum of everythign we have experienced and thats it. An extension of that is that we are never the same. At the core we have a foundation of personality charachteristics based on genetics/physiology, but everything outside of that is the sum of 'nurture' or environmental influences. We are a combination of 'nature' and nurture. the ratio is the question. How much of each...

I think personality is solely enviromental the only reason people might have the characteristics of there parents is becuse they have been brought up by them.

Actually no that is very false. Virtually all modern research in psychology and genetics point to the fact that at least some part of our psychology and behavior is decided by genetics and biology. It's a nonegotiable fact. Thats why we have people with mental disorders who need medication.
I have obsessive compulsive disorder and tourettes syndrome, and always have since I can remember. All the cognitive therapy I have done while helping a bit, has not come even close to curing me and actually medication only helps marginally. now if it was environmental I could deal with it, as others who develope OCD from streesful situations eventually and usually overcoem it fully but if you're born with it like me you cant. And I've had doctors say it is definitely the wiring of the brain, not a life experience. It is natural and still influences my thinking.
It is genetic.
