“Two things go to the grave. The first is the physical body, and the second is the human personality. As we have already said, the latter is formed during the first seven years of infancy and is strengthened with experiences. Sometimes the personality wanders through the cemetery, or leaves its grave when the mourners visit and bring flowers. But the personality soon disintegrates. The personality is energetic and atomic. The personality is perishable. There is no future for the personality of a dead person, it is mortal.
The personality is not re-incarnated. The personality is a child of its time and dies in its time. What continues is the essence, that is to say, the GHOST OF THE DEAD PERSON. Within the ghost, the RE-INCARNATE EGO, the SELF is found. This is the Legion of Devils which continues. It is a mistake to divide ourselves between two EGOS, one a superior sort and the other inferior: The EGO is a LEGION OF DEVILS, which normally develops within us; that is all.”
