Excerpt About Entityhood
Source of the Belief in EntityhoodThe foundation of the belief in entityhood is the conviction that physical reality is the most fundamental reality determining who we are. If you take yourself to be the person you think you are, you are bounded by your body. Your body, more than anything else, defines you as a person. In other words, the most superficial dimension in reality defines the rest of reality. Entityhood always depends on taking physical reality, as we normally experience it, to be the ultimate reality. This is true regardless of how much you experience love, surrender, divinity, essence, expanded awareness, or whatever else. If you believe that you are a separate entity, then you still believe that physical reality is more fundamental than all of these spiritual experiences, and that physical reality is what determines all of these experiences.
