Just wanted to suggest an alternative to Brian's analogy that one's
image of self is a balloon.  The way I am experiencing it, I feel it
as more like a sheet of bubble-wrap with lots of individual cells to
pop.

Yes it is interesting Teresa. I don't remember talking about a balloon. One of the actions of self is to bounce  this off our own experience. If we fall off a step and twist our ankle we don't put that into analogy.  However with psychological things we self reference to possibly avoid the truth. Can I listen to you and get what you are saying?  Yes I see how you experience the popping of self. But when you pop the cell the shell remains. Therefore still the center remains. So are we talking about the same thing? I question that.  Just because the question must be asked. Nothing  personal,  just inquiring therefore everything is personal I guess!
