Who am I?

  1. 1. Who am I Hitoshi Tsuchiyama Copyright © 2015, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama. All rights reserved. ?
  2. 2. "If I ask who am I then who is asking who am I, who am I and who is listening ?" is a very interesting and deep question. The following is my answer to the question: Full time true self (enlightened person) never asks such a question because s/he knows s/he is the whole cosmos. So, "Who am I?"'s "I" is ego or temporary true self (those who are mindful temporarily but aren't enlightened yet). Ego or temporary true self is asking "Who am I?". The answer to "Who is listening?" has three patterns. If ego is asking "Who am I?", only ego is listening or ego and temporary true self are listening. If temporary true self is asking "Who am I?", ego and temporary true self are listening. 2015/9/5 2Copyright © 2015, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama. All rights reserved. 1. Deep Question and Answer (ego, temporary true self, full time true self)
  3. 3. When I had two versions of myself, I asked to myself, “How can I stop rejecting myself? How can I love myself?”. And I found out that "I" was ego and "myself" was temporary true self as follows: How can I (ego) stop rejecting myself (true self)? How can I (ego) love myself (true self)? * True self of above means temporary true self (those who are mindful temporarily but aren't enlightened yet). So I needed to transcend duality. Therefore, there are three versions of oneself which are ego, temporary true self and full time true self. Evolution of humanity means the evolution from ego to temporary true self, and the evolution from temporary true self to full time true self. 2015/9/5 3Copyright © 2015, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama.

  4. 4. Version ①: Ego (separate self) (Ego can recognize wave of appearance only, in the realm of conventional truth) Happiness Time Copyright © 2015, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama. All rights reserved. Suffering Death 0 Duality: separation between birth and death, happiness and suffering Appearance Birth Ego is not aware that happiness and suffering are interdependent co-arising. Alive sign in the realm of conventional truth is amplitude of waves. (Appearance is manifestation seen by eyesight. Everything is illusion if we think.) Unrecognized phenomena opposite to appearanceReality (Reality is true nature seen by insight. Non-thinking. Both waves are offset to zero, state of peace.)
  5. 5. ②: Temporary true self (non-separate self) (True self can recognize both waves, in the realm of conventional truth) Happiness Time Copyright © 2015, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama. All rights reserved. Birth Be humble to avoid over-joy (gratitude, humility, love) Suffering Death 0 Transform suffering to happiness (compassion) Phenomena opposite to appearance Appearance Temporary true self is not aware that happiness and suffering are interdependent co-arising. Duality: separation between birth and death, happiness and suffering Reality
  6. 6. ③: Full time true self (non-separate self) (Both waves are extinct by interference, in the realm of ultimate truth) (Happines) s (Time) Copyright © 2015, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama. All rights reserved. No Birth Non-duality: non- separation between birth and death, happiness and suffering (Suffering) No Death 0 Full Enlightenment: Middle Way: Peace, Calm Full time true self is aware that happiness and suffering are interdependent co-arising. Extinction of all notions (Nirvana)
