Thank you Daverupa, I am always grateful for replies
So it seems a being is formed through craving itself. This seems clear to me as isn't craving the root for rebirth, to put it broadly?
So to recap; even after the self conceit is diminished there can be the arising of thoughts of remorse and it is these thoughts which can be clung to, thus the arising of being. It seems that awakening is in stages, where clinging can arise and fall, gradually becoming less until full awakening.
Please feel free to let me know if this sounds correct?
