Actually, every HUMAN PERSONALITY IS CONDITIONED AND CONSTANTLY CHANGING. As a person, we possess a human body and mind. The mind consists of feelings, memories, beliefs, perceptions, and formations.
THE HUMAN PERSONALITY
The human personality has the nature of constant change. These changes simultaneously take place whenever there is a change in the external conditions. Therefore, a question may arise in every human mind about ” Who is he/she”.
In order to solve the problem, we ought to have to analyze another question as to ” What he/she is not”.
WHAT I AM NOT
To contemplate this tricky question, we will have to ascertain whether the body we possess can be called as self. The answer would certainly be a No. Actually, the feelings of self only arise in every human mind. The truth can be ascertained by developing a pure consciousness.
At certain moments we may become a person. On the other hand at other certain moments, we may not become a person. Naturally, self or no self is dependent on external prevailing conditions.
CONTEMPLATE THE BODY AND MIND AS PERSONALITY
The first and foremost?question whether the human body can be described as self. While contemplating we would find that as otherworldly phenomena the human body is constantly changing too. Besides, it is beyond any human control. It comprises the four material elements such as earth, water, air, and fire, which belongs to nature.
The second question may arise about the human mind. May we describe it as a self? Actually, the mind consists of the feelings, memories, beliefs, formations, and perceptions. Furthermore, it is also beyond our control and does not follow our commands. Besides, the human mood and personality simultaneously change according to the changes in mental feelings.
To arrive at the truth the mindful observation and contemplation of both the mind and body is essential. The true self beyond the realm of the human body and mind and can be understood by practicing the meditation with the mindful awareness and developing the wisdom. Obviously, every human will have to observe and contemplate him/herself as to ” Who is he/she”?
