No one

There is just pain, but no owner of it.
There are just actions, but no doer thereof.
There is salvation, but no one to be redeemed.
There is «the path,» but no one walking to be found.

The Buddha

My scarf, my cloak and my turban—
Someone offered me a dime for them.
My name, praised all over the world—
No one, No one, No one—
It’s yours to be had for a dime.

Jalaluddin Rumi

Although it (the «I») sets out for this great adventure (of Self-realization), it does so only to … get lost on the journey.
