Sometimes someone else taught us or even half-prevented us from having key experiences. And sometimes it’s ourselves. So in this week’s Friday Dose we’ll have some fun. What definitions do you have for yourself that you’re currently living under? How are you limiting your life experience with your thoughts about yourself? What do you think “isn’t you?” What don’t you think you can do that other people routinely do? What thoughts do you have about aspects of life that prevent you from living completely?

A serious childhood brain injury lead Scott to spend his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and identity. It made others as strange to him as he was to them.
