Taste Freedom from Defining Yourself

Here’s my index card for today:

I am reading a book at the moment, called “The Self Illusion: Why There is No ‘You’ Inside Your Head“. It certainly pulls the rug from under your feet :-). Having spent years trying, and failing, to define myself it is a relief to know that there is no self to define! Taste the freedom!

The boys have gone with much more artistic cards, choosing to draw pictures of some of the felt food they made last year. Here’s Gman’s pizza & pasta:

    Do you Know Alan Watts’ book “On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are “? Of not, may I recommend it?
