Yes, Ego – but you’re only a confection. Candyfloss spun by my mind; and your price is loneliness. My “self” is a prison, and you, my Ego are a false gaoler. Death only exists for you, my Ego. Without it (in every sense) I truly live. Live truly.
Eternal life is in relation, between I and Thou. You are death, my Ego. You and the relation “I-It”
Extract from Martin Buber’s I and Thou..
(For reading click here to listen …trimmed -i thou 1-7 to man the world is twofold
To man the world is twofold, in accordance with his twofold attitude.
The attitude of man is twofold, in accordance with the twofold nature ofthe primary words which he speaks. The primary words are not isolated words, but
The one primary word is the combination I-Thou. The other primary word is the combination I-It;
wherein, without a change in the primary word, one of the words He and She can replace It.
Hence the I of man is also twofold.
For the I of the primary word I-Thou is a different I from that of the primary word I-It.
Primary words do not signify things, but.they intimate relations.
