John Sherman’s Podcast are available on:

“If I can speak to anybody at all in a way that is uncomplicated, simple, direct and clean enough for them to hear it, so that they can hear this one simple suggestion to turn their attention to see if they cannot get the direct experience of the reality of their own nature, of what it feels like to be that person, they will automatically try to do it. This act is just so simple and straightforward, so lacking in any qualification whatsoever: you don’t have to believe anything, you don’t have to disbelieve anything, you don’t have to do any practice and you don’t have to stop any of your practices. All that’s needed is that you take one fraction of a second to see if you cannot get a taste of what it feels like to be you. Anybody who tries this must succeed. You can’t fail in the effort to get a taste of what it feels like to be you. After all, it’s you. It’s not awareness, or consciousness, or god, or silence, etc. It’s you. It is my conviction that anyone who hears this suggestion will try it and, having tried it, will certainly succeed. Over time, the end of the alienation from their own life is certain and sanity prevails.” John Sherman
