... but what "the true core being" is, is up to one's imagination.
It's NOT imagination, that's the point! Go for the direct experience.  The Ego you are trying to preserve w/ RWG & thousands of other tools of the machinery is imagination.

Are you saying that this "core being thingy" does not have any ambition and/or does not have any survival mechanisms?  What i am afraid of here is  that  you are just substituting one sign for another sign and both of those signs are of the very same thing.
Yep, being requires nothing except being - no pre-requisites, no taxes!
A rock has a being, so does slime mold; and, yes, neither has ambition - that i know of.  You, "your ego", and you "your being" both exhibit the mechanism of survival and probably some ambition for something  beyond your current awareness.  Your flim flam of terms answers no questions for me.
Too bad you don't have much of a clue what "being" is. There is no survival to "being" it just is! I thought you had some Zen foundation.  You may not want the answers you are getting or may be asking the wrong questions. If you are interested go here (which I just finished), otherwise have a happy life anyway!

..... well i'll probably read Ralston's book, but i hope it's not just another book purporting to know what it's all about.
