Personification of thoughts.......

Postby george_ionita » Mon Oct 20, 2014 12:23 am

The Power of Now/You are not your mind/page 27 very lower.....

"It (thought) wants to take you over..... and it usually succeeds".....

Why Eckard personify (and give attributes like those for human kind) to thoughts?
Based on his sentences It seems like thought has human discernment attributes...
What should I understand from this metaphor?..........

My sense it that ET is pointing to the personification of perspective that identification with thought brings - the me sense that is built upon definitions of self over a clear presence of being. In other words thoughts defining 'me' take on an identity of self that then strive to take over all perspectives of being.

Thanks, I was thinking about the same meaning, but I wanted a second opinion.
