“Is our personality an illusion?”

The beauty of a rainbow is its diversity of colors, yet together they are all pure light. Likewise when pure awareness passes through the prism of humanity it creates the beauty of your unique personality. Yet, in essence it is only the One White Light. After a direct experience of this light, unity of all forms is an experiential fact; so any sense of an exclusive uniqueness that “stands alone” apart from it is an illusion, even personality. A seeker who actually has had this experience as the light, then experientialy knows themselves as the sum of the colors as well.
