This morning continues with unguided meditations. Alan first speaks briefly about the tendency to identify with the body and mind as oneself. This practice is particularly effective in eradicating this misunderstanding. It helps us move from, “Buddhanature is something I have, but I’m really screwed up,” to, “Buddhanature is who I am, and the mental afflictions come and go.”
The unguided meditation begins at 10:45 in the recording.
