Coming Undone Once again life brings "the me concept" and its supposed "volitional power to do" undone. Each time this happens, I have a chance to open deeper to the revelation that "I am not that" Yet, this is the very situation the self improvement teachings seek to amend. The self improvement teachings never question the nature of the self that they propose to improve. Whereas the Advaita teachings simply ask us to look and see that we may not actually be the conditioned self we take ourselves to be. Its this conditioned self that "comes undone" in what I term The Living Teaching, meaning Life's unending dance of change and transformation, wherein, if we are open and fortunate, we may come undone and loosing a foothold find ourselves free falling in endless wonder and awe.
