Re: Inro

Hi Rachel. :) Let's have a look at this. Most of the time I am still identified with thoughts about a 'self' Could you elaborate on the process?

Re: Inro

Hi IndigoBlue. :) My name is Kento, and I'd be glad to be your guide.

If you are ready, could you start by telling a bit more about what your present take on "self" is?


Warm wishes,

Kento

Re: Who is asking?

Re: Take a look

In the same way, is your realization something that is as natural as saying "Ouch!" when feeling pain? In other words, do you have to keep remembering or telling yourself about a particular "r...
