Onions and No-Self

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.

  1. Ogres are like onions…


  2. Yes well, I thought of it long before Mike Myers, by-golly, LOL – at least the initial thought. The fun of no-onion-left has been a more recent thing.

  3. You know, I had totally forgotten about that. I remember thinking it was cool to see that. Shrek was a good movie. Certainly the best of the three, IMHO.
