So what’s so different between me and this corn chip? Or the water, sun, trees, the grass, or even this chair—or you?
Why do we feel so isolated and so separate, so often? Are we really all that different from one another? From the world around us? There are as many takes on the Buddhist concept of non-self as there are bumps and ridges on an organic tortilla chip.
Mark DiFilippo of ReturnToYourBreath.com shares his understanding of the concept while crunching his way towards enlightenment.
