Reader comment on Sam Harris's passage ...

To Know Your Mind, Pay Close Attention To It

 My ego is just another transitory appearance in consciousness.  My true self, my essence, is eternal consciousness expressed as me.  I've had some moments in meditation when I felt amorphous, part of all that is, bigger than my usual sense of self -- that was my real self and I relish that state of awareness.  For me, turning consciousness upon itself means being conscious of my consciousness which happens for moments at a time as thoughts do constantly intrude.  What helps me turn consciousness upon itself is practice -- practice putting aside or letting go of my thoughts and being conscious without content.
