S&H 301: 6-9 shows that to begin with this erroneous sense of identity, which is only real to itself, and then try
to make things work out for it, is likely to be abortive. You begin outside of that dream, and of course, that which begins outside the dream is not a person turning over a new leaf, but is Mind itself that has never thought or experienced in any other way.
I, Mind, Love, Truth, only know in terms of fulfillment and celebration—never in terms of unrequited effort. Only person could feel this way, and personal sense is just another name for mortal mind!
