Alan Watts, one of the most articulate minds of our times, describes with great breath and depth, what the inner self is and how it is beneficial for us to live in that place rather than the superficial identity that most people accept as themselves. He gives a beautiful and logical connection on our connection to the universe and makes one feel a certainty and calm, in our daily sense of purpose.
Watts is one of my most important mentors and I met him back in the late 60's when I was just a neophyte in my quest for enlightenment.
What I do at Mindmavericks.org does not uncover the concept of the inner self, but it has invented a new accelerated, tangible method of getting and staying in contact with the inner self, with the added understanding of the physiological knowledge of what happens in the brain at the same time.
Take your time to enjoy this Video, it is subtlety very profound.
