0004 - Going within | Ego, self & illusions | Know thyself

The Unlearning Playground

01-12-2021 • 16 mins

One of the most potent advice you can give someone is to ask them to go within, or to know themselves.

We have all heard the old sayings from eastern philosophy.
"Go within."
"Know thyself."

I try in this episode to throw some light on these beautiful sayings. Join me as I walk you through a basic introduction to what it means to go within, what is the ego, what is the self and what are some illusions surrounding them.

Jiddu Krishnamurti, or Uncle JK as I fondly call him, used to say, "When I understand myself, I understand you. And out of that understanding comes love." The man was right!

This surely will be worth your time, I promise.
I wouldn't be doing this if I thought otherwise.

Tune in!
