Self is an Obstacle to Clear Vision

Bernadette Roberts
In the now-moment the self never arises; nothing calls upon it to do so. The eye seeing itself lives and holds everything tightly in this moment, a moment that has no need of a self. But even if we persist with the notion of self, such a label adds nothing to pure subjectivity. It tells us nothing more about it, and any clinging to self as a notion or an experience, certainly constitutes an obstacle to clear vision.
The Experience of No-Self, 1982 Edition, pg 157

  1. I think this is what marina abramovic was going in her performance art at the Guggenheim , The artist is present.
    The film on her search is detailed in the video, The space in between. Very good film. Not Christian particularly.
