You are not 'the doer'.

Sunday May 17 we will meet at my office in Binghamton at 2 pm for 15 minutes of silent meditation followed by a discussion and commentary on the concept of the "doer". In our recent exploration of the teachings of Ramana Maharshi, Ramana noted that the idea of the doer was the essential "poison".  Obviously, poison is a strong word. What did he mean? We are taught from earliest childhood that we have a self identity that is in charge of our behavior. This self identity is known as "I". It is who we think we are. All of our troubles and suffering in life follow from this primary misunderstanding about who we are and how life operates. If we are not this doer, then who or what are we? In this talk and discussion, we will explore the path to coming to know who you really are. We will also continue our discussion of the "Who am I?" practice.
If you are interested in attending, please RSVP as space is limited.
