The self is relatedness. Only when the self mirrors itself in so many mirrors does it really exist. . . You can never come to your self by building a meditation hut on top of Mount Everest; you will only be visited by your own ghosts and that is not individuation. . . .
The self only exists inasmuch as you appear.
Not that you are, but that you do the self.
The self appears in your deeds and deeds always mean relationship.
