Comes from the word persona which by definition is a character in a play.

I love that Alan Watts speech! I've probably listened to 20-30 hours of Alan Watts lectures lol.

Just rambling. no need to post about how wrong I am.
I've seen many people roll play the "spiritual" part. But I've seen those same people constantly depressed and unhappy in so many ways. In the beginning of my spiritual journey i was very intimidated buy the people dressed, talked,ect. But then i read that all i had to be was me. so then my journey began i started paying attention to certain things and they slowly started trickling in. I still consider myself a student probably always will.
