      Dear Jeff & James,I have a question for you both.I am somoene who is deeply interested in both psychology and non-duality, for more than a decade now. I have psychologist coming to stay with me a week, who subscribes to Eastern philosophies’ / non-duality. Now, whilst not an expert, if I read correctly, this discussion could also be about if we are already whole , and that psychological problems’ we experience come from false’ concepts/conditioning, then there is only a realisation that these problems’ are illusions for us to be healed’, VERSUS, the above is all very well, but that realisation can’t simply come from meditation / non-dual awareness, and that there is proper psychological work’ to be done.So, for example, if I suffer from an issue such as fear of holding together a decent relationship’, which comes from my teenage years when my first couple of dates rejected’ me, all I need to do is unlearn that fear/inconfidence which I have absorbed into my character, and all will be ok. If I can dissolve this harmful concept, and understand that there is no fixed, concrete’ me who might have this fear, then everything will be ok. I would be interested to understand what you both feel would be the most productive approach to negate there being a self’ who suffers these issues, or tackle the issues’ head on from the standpoint of the suffering self that claims to have the issues.Many thanks,Jasper
