A Message from John
Two Choices After the Looking
During the period of recovery that follows the act of looking at yourself, two choices appear to us. We can do nothing about it and wait for the difficult times to pass on their own. Or we can learn to work with our attention and become skillful in deciding for ourselves what deserves our attention in the moment. The simple practice of Self-Directed Attention gives us the ability to actually influence the way our mind reconstitutes itself after the disappearance of the fear of life.

My Return to This Work
Hello everyone. In the period of 2010-2012, I was very active in this work. I knew for certain that I had done the looking and was headlong into recovery. I was a regular contributor to the forums, and even made a trip to Ojai to attend a meeting and to meet John and Carla in person.
In early 2013, I changed jobs and moved into one of the most challenging times in my career. In 2015, we lost both of our dogs in the short period of four months, and two very close associates of mine had near fatal accidents.
What I have come to discover is that I was new into recovery and the shock of these events sent me running to what was more comfortable for me: the satsang world, complete with the music, pictures, malas, guru-worship and, of course, dumping the responsibility of my life on to someone else. This was my way of escaping from these very difficult things and running away from life.

What Does It Feel Like to Be You?
"The first thing to do is to try to get a taste of what it actually feels like to be you. It is very faint; there is not much to it. It doesn't call attention to itself. Many people never feel that they have succeeded. But that doesn't matter because, since it is you you are trying to look at, you cannot possibly fail to bring your attention to the actual nature of yourself." - John Sherman
