is it that lives these many lives?
It is not any Who... !
Since selfless is this flux of
ever renewed becoming!
The question should therefore be reformulated as:
is it, that lives these many lives?
It is an accumulated
and ever changing group of:
1: Momentary clinging to form;
2: Momentary clinging to feeling;
3: Momentary clinging to perception;
4: Momentary clinging to mental construction;
5: Momentary clinging to consciousness...
itself blinded by ignorance and obsessed by craving,
tumbles through these many, many, painful lives
It is not an "I", "Me", "Self", "Soul", "Person", or
Cluster Clinging to itself!
5 Clusters of Clinging
are the 5 types of Being!
As the blessed Buddha pointed out:
Sabbe Dhammā Anattā
All States are no-self!
There is nobody home... ;-)
