About the Author
The author’s personal journey of self discovery that entailed constant questioning and self doubt led to the realisation that much of the truth in life has little to do with knowledge gained and more to do with uncovering the delusions we have accumulated over time.
Our lives as we experience it today are a complex web of reactions that come from the intricate workings of the human mind which in turn is rooted primarily in the knowledge base genetically inherited and acquired in one’s life.
The author’s journey was always tempered by the fundamental tool of self doubt which worked wonders in unravelling the many delusions we suffer, that cloud our view of life or the truth about oneself.
The real beauty of this journey of self discovery is about shedding your mental baggage. As you uncover the myriad delusions you suffer you feel lighter and fresher and more in tune with the moment in existence.
There is no vast body of knowledge one acquires, or conclusions one arrives at or path one takes to arrive at oneself. Put in the simplest of words its about seeing life for what it is without judgement or conclusion.
After 25 years of this quest the author felt it was much like peeling onion skins, one after the other, until there was nothing left. Surely the process was at times difficult like the tears we shed as we peel onion skins.
It was overwhelming and astounding to realise that one hadn’t, after a long ardous journey arrived at something in terms of a conclusion about life. No philosophy to follow, no path to take, no direction to move in.
The author let it sit with him, not bothering if the journey was a waste or value created. He let it sit for 13 years only to realise that something simple, solid and unshakeable had emerged. A clarity about what life is not. A positivity that seems unfazed by what life unfolds. A natural goodness and a sense of gratitude that enables a deep abiding joy and sense of well being and peace.
In simple words the quest to understand himself led the author to that very destination…of understanding himself. Only that that understanding stems from a clarity about what one is not!
