2004-10-31 Through The Looking Glass - The Reality Of No-Self 60:18
  Marcia Rose

We can look into the mirror of the dhamma and see the painful contraction that accompanies"ME"&"MINE"&"THEIR'S" and let go & come to know the truth of interconnectedness & the reality of no separate, no solid, no static "self", and take the great relief & ease in this truth.
