Understand yourself better
Self-inquiry practice helps us to understand ourselves better and how our mind really works. This practice helps us to take responsibility for our thoughts and emotions by understanding how they are created. This understanding comes through our direct experience, in which we see how our thoughts recreate our perception of reality. This ultimately helps us to realize who we truly are. This is a traditional yoga practice (awareness practice) using a contemporary framework from the work of Byron Katie.
Self-inquiry allows the practitioner to access the wisdom that always exists within and remain alert to stressful thoughts, and questions them. When we start questioning our thoughts, they start losing their power over us. Great spiritual texts describe the what—what it means to be free. Self-inquiry is the how. It shows you exactly how to identify and question any thought that would keep you from that freedom.
“I discovered that when I believed my thoughts I suffered, but when I didn’t believe them I didn’t suffer and that this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as that.” – Byron Katie
Self-inquiry places our attention inwards to look at what is coming up in ourselves (thoughts, emotions, sadness, anger, etc) and inquires into what is moving us to be and feel how we are and how we feel.
