According to Jack Kornfield he read in a Time magazine article that Neuroscientists have searched for decades and have come to the conclusion that there is no self; they cannot locate it in any structure in the brain. Cool I don’t exist! That’s great because it means I can let myself off the hook for all kinds of things I don’t want to deal with ..ha..ha! Jack goes on to say sometimes we do get glimpses of the self in certain moments where we open to mystery, where we become the “witnessing awareness” and this is our path to coming home to ourselves.
