This is a wonderful question; a horrible question; but one that lurks within every other one of these Ten Zen Questions.
Before you read Chapter 3, you might like to have a go at it yourself. Settle down to sitting quietly and looking at the floor, or a nice flower, or whatever you like – or do an easy task like washing up or just walking – and ask yourself “Who is asking the question?”.
What do you think? Where did the question take you? Have any of you experienced the “headless way” or tried any of the other things I describe there?
Oh, and by the way, the Psychology Today blog is up and running. You might like to join in there too, or at least take a look. It will be very different from this one, though on the same topics. Advice welcomed!
