Publisher's Summary

This is an audiobook of Bodhi Leaf No. 105 by Ayya Khema, An Exhortation and Self-Image or Self-Knowledge

Excerpt from An Exhortation:

Self-identification with one’s state of being is the great trap. So, we must first become aware of the props we use to maintain who we think we are. It begins with: “I’m a woman” or “I’m a man.” There’s strong identification. There’s strong support for the ego, for that “I am” is the ego itself talking. Next, we identify with our abilities and our knowledge. “This is what I can do!” and “This is what I know.” Two further strong supports for the ego.

Excerpt from Self-Image or Self-Knowledge:

Let go of all self-images, of all ideations, of all hopes and plans. Then, you can dwell in this particular moment - and no one can take that away from you. It can’t disappear, or be broken, or get lost. It just is. Security lies in the simple fact that in essence one has nothing, and one is nothing.
