Discovering Your True Self-Nature

Find Your Real Purpose in Life

Is This All There Is?

One of the first and most important steps of inner development is the discovery of your self-nature, which is who you are and what you are at the deepest level of your being, all without the masks and delusions created by your conscious thinking mind.

This wisdom comes from an old monk named Bodhidharma who lived back in the 6th century B.C.E. His discoveries about about a person’s self-nature have come to be known as Zen.

Discovery of your self-nature is likely to be your first experience of spiritual Enlightenment. While there may be many steps and many experiences of enlightening knowledge, a person who has discovered his own self-nature can be truthfully said to be “enlightened.” Knowledge of one’s self-nature is perhaps the most valued prize on the pathway of inner development.

Zen is not a religion. It is not based on any religious belief. Along the Zen path a practitioner might receive spiritual knowledge, which is chiefly knowledge of one’s own human spirit, and then subsequent knowledge received via the human spirit.

What is meant by “inner development?” Inner Development is growth and development of the non-physical self, including mental, emotional, and spiritual areas. It’s the pathway of improving yourself at the deepest inner levels, and experiencing higher levels of joy and fulfillment in this life. It really works.
