There is a world of difference between knowing intentional adoption of an identity, freely taken on and discardable at will, and the kind of automatic identification of self with thing that is the core of gradual insanity. Consider the difference, for example, between "I am using a body " and "I am a body". Or, "I have and use the identity of Robert Jones" versus "I AM Robert Jones and cannot be otherwise".
It's a matter of gradually sliding from conscious exercise of will through degrees of automatic reasoning and stimulus-response mechanisms that obscure and debilitate the being behind the scenes. It pays to pay a little attention tot he man behind the curtain.
Rapp, Maggie is not the type to pee in a guitar. She's well mannered and even considerate, in her doggie way. She's a polite and welcome addition to the household. You should see her when she goes outside--her ears perk up and she sniffs everything madly. She's light on her feet and skedaddles forth into the world with a head full of alert curiousity. Indoors, she is more self-effacing and restrained.
