Excerpt About Practicing Period
Child's Experience of the Essential IdentityWhen the Essential Identity arises in the practicing period, the child feels these grand qualities. However, as we have discussed, she is not consciously aware that she is being the Essential Identity, so her realization is different from the mature self-realization of an adult. She is the Essential Identity completely and nondualistically, but at the same time she is dualistically aware of her body-mind. So she believes that these characteristics of her true self are the properties of her mind and body.
