"What we are, what we feel as "us," is a combination of tens of virtues in different levels. This is a unique combination, something like our fingerprints.
It's not the human that speaks. It's what it is made of.
Imagine that human beings are like an octopus. They have tentacles. But these tentacles have a very different name. We call them "virtues." What happens is that when we "like/dislike" something, a tentacle extends from us, to go and meet (respond to) another tentacle -of the same virtue/energy- that is extended from another being or situation.
But, if you are not aware of this trap, how are you going to avoid it?"
