Listen now (10 mins) | I will pause telling the real stories I lived in the jungle and start writing what I learned. I'd like you to please read this as a share of what I learned, not as a lesson. I am just speaking, writing, and sharing. Please decide for yourself what you feel resonates or not. I am not trying to teach anyone here; claim what I am saying should be anybody else’s truth or give advice. This is just my truth at the moment I am writing this. Do not trust anyone other than yourself, including the speaker (me).
Hey Loic - thank you for sharing!
Speaking for myself, this is the weirdest journey when most everything that I believed in previously as important or real is falling away. And equally when all of a sudden the essence (not necessarily the actual words) of ancient teachings become blindingly obvious, tangible, real, and critically important. It's a strange and beautiful place to be in.
When I read this and heard your voice very recently, I felt gratitude for you expressing what you are feeling and seeing.
What strikes me is that you pretend to get rid of the evil "I" and yet you only talk about yourself. This would be fine if your "I " pretended to speak universally. But you also pretend you only speak for yourself. There is obvious bad faith here as Sartre would put it.
