The mind is playing a great trick which is believed that the individual is the author of their life. We have never gone directly looking to find this “you,” which is supposedly a separate entity that is controlling and directing your life, just accepting this is true. But this “you” cannot be found if we go directly looking for it because it does not exist. Life is just happening by itself. You don’t exist separate from life, but as life’s experiences. There is no loss experienced on seeing this because the belief in a separate “you” causes all suffering.
