        When i believe meself to be a separate individual, i see a separate world and separate individuals in it, this happens through the mechanism of projection but if i see through this and realize there’s really nobody home that the idea of a separate self is just an idea, then i have rooted out the idea that there is a separate self but what now do i go around believing that there are no separate selves? Isn’t that just another belief to hold any position whatsoever with regard to any of this, seems to me be back in the game of belief and projection again the idea here, it seems to me, is not to know anything (whatsoever) but to simply be any knowing , any holding any position whatsoever, is a movement back into the mind that knows, that can make sense of this reality

    Hi John,

    I’d like to submit a contemplative essay for possible publication in the journal. I have a few lines of inquiry I’m exploring, and note the guidelines for writing. Is this a good place for me to go ahead with such a project, or do you have other ideas on how I can get started? Thank you.

    Thanks for your article Jeff.I recently finished a training as a hypnotherapist and psychotherapist and I realise that as much as I want to help clients and others in general it is also really me that I am trying to help. I’ll try and practise bearing in mind the questions you raised in the article. Also I like the part where you told your client that you didn’t know . I can relate to that in my job with autistic kids. I sometimes don’t know what is going to happen and sometimes don’t know what to do and feel that remaining silent is the best option for the situation to evolve/change without me , if that makes any sense. Thanks again Jeff.Olivier

    Dear John,
    Eirini Press has just published Lawrence LeShan’s latest work, The Landscapes of the Mind: The faces of reality, in which he applies a classification system (based on Linneaus’ method) to state of consciousness. I think that your readers will be most interested and wonder if I may send you a review copy?
    More information on the book is available at:
