The Zen Thinking Podcast — Episode 39 — Perceiving Our Perceptions

In this week's episode I discuss perceiving our perceptions and being cognizant of the false duality that arises when we believe ourselves to be the perceiver, or rather, the subject to which experience occurs to.

The truth of reality however, is that neither the perceiver nor the perceived actually exist—both are illusions that co-arise within the unified, non-dual act of perceiving.

Rather than identifying ourselves with that which we perceive (our thoughts, beliefs, opinions, emotions, memories, sensations, experiences and knowledge) we should identify with the very act of perceiving—which is a reflection of awareness, within awareness—our true self nature.

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

When your inner commentary ends

Practicing the Art of Radical Acceptance

The Clouds of Distressing Thought

You are not the “I” thought you believe yourself to be

I cannot be defined

Knowledge isn't Knowing: Unravelling the duality of perception

Accepting that which you are powerless against
