Return to Pure Listening

Eric Baret answers questions about self-judgment and feelings of inadequacy and exclusion:

How can i shake the deep feelings of inadequacy and exclusion I have when encountering others?

If I'm met in love by another and I still have a feeling of separation, am I the only one who produces that feeling?

If accepting yourself is not a choice, what is it?

Would you say that all we can do about self-rejection, self-hate and self-judgment is to experience those feelings fully?

Fully feeling the sensations that come with self-judgment and self-denigration doesn't seem to be helpful

His words are shaped and sustained by the nondual tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, and take us back to the simple observation of our felt sense of emotion and, ultimately, to pure listening. This allows a liberating realization: the root of suffering is an illusion, and all claims to knowledge are a pretense. The first English translation of one of Eric Baret’s books, Let the Moon Be Free, is now available on Amazon. These dialogues are an invitation to celebrate life in the present moment, free from the fear of an imaginary future.
