What survives when being ‘reborn’?

Reborn out of the MudWhat survives the process of dismantling beliefs, concepts and ones self-image?

The ‘old foundation of Self’ is established in one’s personality with one is completely identified. With all the property that we have established during our personal life through education and all kind of influences that we have received, mainly as being part of society. Included of course in our personality is also being identified with our body, mind and emotions and all the experiences with sensations that are coming out of these, that are mostly reactions provoked by outside conditions and happenings. Most frustration and disappointments and all stress we cause by holding tied our concepts and our self-image and we live with the discrepancy between the daily reality that shows up and the unconscious program that we have installed.
The image ‘being reborn’ is loaded with spiritual/religious concepts, but it is simply the result of ‘dismantling’ the personality. What ‘survives’ the growing process of an individual after being ‘transformed’ is not possible to describe without using images that are already part of our conceptual world.
So, – what survives is the awareness of ones *pure existence*, what does not exclude ones vehicles that one will continue to use: Ones body, mind and emotions. In this ‘reborn’ state of being are no identification games involved. Then indeed you are: “self-confident, gentle, kind and joyful with yourself and others” beside many other new features that are real and authentic and not just the intention to live ones concepts.
One can share ideas, but with these one can not answer such a question, except by turning around it. The answer can only come out of a state having gone through the process of transformation and realization. Even though then this answer only can use words that are part of our limited conceptual world view. Our life is a learning, growing and healing process and we all will come to the state when we will have realized ourself and will leave our personality behind, that is just an illusion and part of our fake reality we are living in this society in its present state of transition, – to a new step of our human evolution…
What might be the following question?

    I feel like you are really against the concept of ‘concepts’. Why is this? Is it because they are illusory and hindering realization of genuine truth? Or is it more to it.

    How, except by meditation and reflection, might one rid oneself of clinging to concepts.

    Geir, you are just seeking attention from the author and confirmation for your beliefs. Ask a different question, maybe you can learn something..

    It is not easy.. the simple questions, like ‘How can I go through this transformation?’ ‘Is it really possible to be reborn?’ etc answer themselves.

    Even though meditating for the past days have helped me see some of the truths here, the most obvious is that it will take long time for me to really see it. Or even better, to find a different ‘truth’.

    A truly interesting topic, I’m looking forward to discuss this – my first question would be – do you think that there is one major rebirth in each individuals life, which might have several steps of transformation in it but still a kind of final “goal” in the lack of a better word, or do you see rebirth as a constant process in life?

    A follow up question would be: do you think that we humans can exist in our bodies and minds without entertaining some kind of concepts of reality and ourselves?
