Starting on the path of self-inquiry.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


I was reading one of your answers to a question about the path of self-inquiry where one is supposed to keep asking oneself the question “who am I” as a way to overcome the ego and realize the Self.  I was a little disheartened because the jnana path appeals to me, and now I’m concerned that I don’t really have the basics to make it work and may have been fooling myself. Anyway, I was wondering if there is any beginning practice that could help me get to the place where I could do self-inquiry?


The path of self-inquiry can be attractive when we read the words of great masters like Ramana Maharshi and Nisargadatta Maharaj, but confidence in your experience can feel elusive when we rely on mnemonic formulas like asking yourself repeatedly throughout the day “who am I?” Modern self-inquiry practice is now often called Nonduality teaching and there are a number of excellent teachers that you can listen to on YouTube to see who you resonate with. Rupert Spira, Francis Lucille, Greg Goode are all outstanding.
