The Myth of Self-Enquiry (eBook)
“Probably you believe you are a person reading these very words right now. Maybe you also see yourself as a spiritual seeker. You’ve been to sacred places, followed yoga or meditation, maybe you’ve been involved in a group of seekers with similar interests. Probably you’ve invested a lot in this search for the ultimate truth. Maybe you feel you have been close to finding your true nature, and still … something is lacking. What if this search leads you nowhere because the seeker who wants to achieve ‘it’ is itself a concept? Have you ever investigated the existence of the investigator you believe you are? The seeker you believe yourself to be will not like this book. Seekers do not want to learn that that their search for enlightenment is just a game of their ego. They don’t like to see that their spiritual enquiry is endless and that their goal of finding their ‘true nature’ is a myth.” Jan Kersschot graduated in medicine from Antwerp University, Belgium. His lifelong quest for the ultimate truth was characterized by his interest in a wisdom which does not exclude anything or anyone. Blending the core of Eastern wisdom with a contemporary Western lifestyle, Jan shows in this collection of extraordinary dialogues how the popular myths about self inquiry and enlightenment can be unmasked. He is the author of the books, Coming Home, Nobody Home and This Is It.
