Notice how you began that line of thought: "What I really am"-->"is my true non-personhood nature".

You are still making self-identity relations, even when you say, "I am not this or that."

It's just that the object of self-view is not an explicit material object; the mental activity is still the same.

At the risk of stating the obvious Hanzze, and I am unclear what your last sentence in particular means...this is a Theravada Discussion Forum..just as it says at the top of the page..it should be no surprise that the emphasis tends to be the Theravada view.
The going for refuge is the door of entrance to the teachings of the Buddha.

I dont accept at all Hanzze that Theravada is the way of not thinking. I think that the Theravada is the way of all of our faculties.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
