What scares me is the belief in Nirvana and other Buddhist teachings. You don't really exist at all ever. . . . .
Hmmm.. It depends on the school of Buddhism I suppose but here is a good way to understand this.
There are Three Truths:
and both Absolute and Relative are True at the same time...
I am Marc. But isn't this just a convention? My Mother picked the name and I go by it. But on the Absolute view of things, "Marc" is just made up. My being is "really" something else.
Truth one: I am Marc.. This is a True statement.
Truth two : I exist in a way far beyond the mundane designations we give each other.
Truth three: Both are True at the same time, one not any more true than the other.
I am Marc and I am also more than that in ways I cant even understand. What is "Real" and then what is "Really Real".
So don't worry too much, you do exist.
