Deep thought provoking questions on our true inner-self helps explore the reality of who we are. It helps us understand the relationship between authentic self and the false self that is always trying to take its place.
What is it that waits for us beyond the veils of the mind? The mind cannot know. Stepping out-of-the-mind isn't only a challenge to be faced; it is a mystery to be lived.
Mystery and challenge are the true stomping grounds of the authentic self. They are the grounds of self-discovery and personal growth.
Stepping into the unknown requires no small amount of trust, courage and resolve. Personal evolution and positive life change require that we draw extensively on internal resources.
This is fertile ground for discovering, or uncovering, our true inner-self: the very well-spring of our internal reservoirs. As we take on the challenges and mysteries of stepping out-of-the-mind; we become increasingly at home with who we really are.

Are we all living our lives authentically? Why not? What is getting in the way?
The existence of an authentic self implies the existence of a false self? Are we familiar with this false self? Do we recognize it? Can we see it operating in our lives?

What is illusion? Is illusion possible without having a true self as background to the illusion?
