REDINGER LAKE, CA—The overcast light plays across the water and in return the lake gratefully reflects the forested shore and sky.
A gentle breeze blows and ripples form across the surface—the tiny waves shift elegantly in a vast and intricately coordinated dance.
I sit in the cargo door of my van and watch—fascinated… grateful.
Do I need a self here?
Right now, in this moment, do I need a self?
Years ago, Ramana Maharshi would have his students ask themselves over and over, “Who am I?”
But in over two decades of asking myself Who am I?, it never got me anywhere. It was too abstract, too cerebral for my tastes. A thought, without a lived application, is just part of the noise of the mind. Part of the trap. Part of the illusion.
To wake up, you must bring your contemplations to life—you must apply them…
Right now, in this moment, do you need your self?
