When the Buddha talked about dualism, he was talking about not trying to establish some thick idea of who you are, and then trying to live inside some secure and protected identity. Rather, you are willing to accept the death and rebirth of your idea of yourself, which is part of human life.
-Dr. Reginald A. Ray
