Our study of the self in practice can take us into murky waters. But the question is the same at every turn: Who am I really? We can feel as if we are made up of different selves, but who is our true self? And then, who is our false self? In this poignant and piercing talk, Ryushin Sensei explores a particular flavor of suffering familiar to us all: Being divided. How do we practice the many what-ifs, should-haves, and might-have-beens of our life to find the inherent freedom of our lives—whole, complete and undivided?
