Hi Tom, just to be clear: Tolle's position, which I agree with, is that the individual constantly changes their persona and expressions based on differing situations. He also says that this can be a good thing, and I firmly agree with that too. There is no inherent virtue in thinking that one never changes, as if that's meant to reflect true self identification.

What he advises, as a means to attaining greater self awareness, is to simply witness the subtle changes in behavior. He would argue that most people don't even realize they are altering their projections. Through this exercise, the first benefit entails recognizing when one is adapting for good reasons versus for not-good reasons, ones perhaps based on long-established coping patterns which really don't serve one well in the present moment.

The second benefit, is recognizing that the perceiver remains constant throughout this process: 'I' am:> watching myself convince the salesman that I am not to be taken advantage of ; convincing the buyer that I am an honest guy; etc
