Mastery of Self - a Closer Look
“Mastery of Self–an inquiry” investigated the nature of self and what Mastery implied.
In this sequel the author unveils that which would benefit from mastery. The many topics discussed aim at revelation beyond intellectual understanding. See the naked self that we think ourselves to be. Get a taste of what Mastery could lead to.
Mastery of Self-an Inquiry
What is the nature of self? What does Mastery imply? When one looks very closely at what it is that we are in essence, we cannot really come up with any reasonable answer. If we permit an 'idea' of mastery of self to be defined by limited thought then the imagination will come up with all sorts of "fantastic" explanations. Deeper inquiry reveals the invalidity of such explanations.
Have you ever watched thought? Have you seen its character? What is it in essence?
Is there freedom from the limitations of thought? Where is thinking most practical? In what situations can thought interfere with and complicate your life?
These, and many more intriguing questions are pursued over three years of personal exchanges over a public internet forum on Personal Development.
