Today I learned about forgetting the self. All of the problems we encounter on a daily basis are because we are worried about the self. We think that things should be easy for us because we are special or we are afraid to put ourselves out there because we worry about our self's image and don't want to be rejected. While I meditated today, I focused on the physical sensations such as the breath or the birds chirping outside of my window. By doing this, I was able to forget the self for a moment or two. It was incredibly freeing.
