The Zen Thinking Podcast — Episode 65 — Self-Inquiry: To Whom Do These Thoughts Come?

In this week's new episode I use the technique of Self-Inquiry to zero in on the stream of "I-thoughts" that seem to pervade every perception and experience.

It is the I-thought that creates the imagined false self (the ego) and that is responsible for creating the illusion of all problems, unhappiness, dissatisfaction, and suffering in one's life.

Through a practice of Self-Inquiry one's underlying true Self is revealed as the empty presence of awareness itself, thereby exposing the I-thought as nothing but a false belief, allowing it naturally dissolve into pure consciousness.

This episode includes readings of the following pieces which I've recently published:

What does it mean to be mindful?

You, Consciousness, pervade all that Is

Move beyond your preoccupations with mind

When I Know

Don’t mistake your Self for the ego that pretends to be you

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