From Buddhas Brain: parts of the self

FullSizeRender
.
.
“At any moment, the parts of self that are present depend on many factors, including genetic heritage, personal history, temperament, and situations.
.
In particular, self depends a lot on the feeling tone of experience. When the feeling tone is neutral, the self tends to fade into the background.
.
But as soon as something distinctly pleasant or unpleasant appears – for example, an interesting email or a physical pain – the self quickly mobilizes along the processing cascade that moves from feeling tone to craving, and from craving to clinging.

.
The self organizes around strong desires.

.

Which comes first: Do “I” form a desire? Or does desire form and “I?”
.
.
.
My two cents
.
Leave “I” rest for a while. Work of improving everyday, sitting quietly, getting to observe the “I” better.
.
Then you will see the delusion and mental gyrations of a bluff.
.
Yes a bluff, my thoughts were powerless outside my brain.
.
Not a very far reach at all.
.
When one of your thoughts stop traffic, I will follow you.
.
Until then thoughts have no power outside our own mind.
