Relaxing the sense of self

    Non-self is a very profound topic in Buddhist philosophy. Here, Erric Solomon suggests that for most of us, the key question has to do with our constant preoccupation with the self. He describes the looping pattern that we develop when we replay events in our minds–and asks if that is really productive. He suggest we learn to relax our sense of self and also our self judgment– thereby developing a saner perspective on life.

    How do you relate to this looping pattern?  Do you recognize this in your own life? Have you practiced relaxing the sense of self–and if so, what changes have you seen from that?

    I like to reduce the rehashing of emotionally charged events. Just to release them seems like forward motion. It seems practice is helping me manage .
