The Zen Thinking Podcast — Episode 51 — You Are Already Self-Realized

In this week's episode I discuss how spiritual enlightenment isn't a special state-of-being to be acquired, it's already your true nature.

All that's required to wake up is to surrender your pre-conceived self-identity and realize that which you already are—an aware presence of consciousness.

There is nothing to be learned—rather, only a thorough process of un-learning is required. The ego and all of its concepts and beliefs must be shed entirely.

I also talk about the recent violence that's been in the news, and I share some words that I hope will help make sense of that which appears to be senseless.

In this episode I discuss the following pieces I've recently published on Zen Thinking:

The world doesn't happen to you—you happen to it

You are this precise moment

The little moments aren't little

Understanding Violence, Aggression, Inhumanity and War

Thanks for listening to the show, I hope you enjoy it.
