I’ve always thought of personal and spiritual growth as peeling back layers of an onion. The more you peel away, the closer you get to the heart of the onion. When I think about ideas of non-self, I extend this into a little joke – for if you peel away all the layers of an onion, there’s nothing left.
Not very original, I’m sure, but it’s something I’ve been thinking of.
