What is Self?¶
Ask: who am I?
When you sit there and observe your breath, how do I know that I'm (not) smart?
Where is the masculinity in me? - do you base your identity of a man on the sensation of your genitals? - testicular cancer: when it's removed, do you lose your sense of identity of maleness?
Where is the sense of "I'm behind, not good enough" in the body?
Turyia: Inner - inspiration, fulfillment
Surface level - dopamine - to get away from other thoughts
When you lose your drives, you attatch to the memory of your old drives
-> stuck: because you're a different person now
Listen to ourselves¶
We distract ourselves when
It's hard to be in touch with ourselves
Meditation: stillness for 5 mins
