"The result of working with Just One Look is really not a big thing. It's not like the clouds open as a choir of angels sing Hallelujahs. It's just ordinary, natural human life free of existential fear. And without the fear, we can come to a clear understanding of our nature, the way our lives are unfolding, what's happening in the moment and what to do about it." - John Sherman

"Once you do the act of looking at yourself, you enter the period of recovery but, most likely, you won't even know that you are in recovery. Often things seem to get worse for a while. But if you start paying attention to how you relate to circumstances, you will begin to notice subtle differences in your behavior." - John Sherman

"The first thing to do is to try to get a taste of what it actually feels like to be you. It is very faint; there is not much to it. It doesn't call attention to itself. Many people never feel that they have succeeded. But that doesn't matter because, since it is you you are trying to look at, you cannot possibly fail to bring your attention to the actual nature of yourself." - John Sherman

"The practice of Self-Inquiry, when engaged in from a spiritual or magical thinking foundation, is crippled.

"Your brain is responsible for monitoring all bodily activity and for making it available to the mind as neural impulses that can be used by the mind to provide a basis for creating appropriate understandings and actions. Informed by the brain as to the current state of the body, our minds determine from experience what is useful, what is irrelevant, and what needs attention." - John Sherman

"We need you. Truth be told, you and I, and all others who have seen the true cause of human self-destructive behavior to be fear alone--fear of death, fear of failure, fear of being found out, fear of thoughts, fear of our own minds, and in the end, fear of life itself--have it in our power to bring an end to all human on human misery; we can bring an end to the baseless foundation of fear that is all that stands in the way of human sanity. So please, turn your attention to our work and decide for yourself now, no matter in what stage of recovery from the fear you might find yourself: Are you with us? Do you see the possibility here?" - John Sherman

"The walking wounded are alive, conscious and breathing. They may have relatively minor injuries and they may be capable of walking. And depending on the resources available and the abilities of the injured person, walking wounded may sometimes be used to assist with treatment of other patients or assist with other tasks. We are all walking wounded here. We are conscious and breathing, but we are crippled from the beginning with the fear of life itself." - John Sherman

"When you are in recovery and crazy thoughts are raging in your mind, seemingly beyond your control, stop for a moment. Realize that all that misery is thought only. The shouting of the leftover symptoms of the fear disease seems to drown out everything else, but you can see that to be the case. A steady practice of self-directed attention will see you through this difficult time and will shorten the length of your recovery." John Sherman

Complete recording of a Meeting with John Sherman in Ojai, California on April 24, 2016.

"The purpose of the practice of self-directed attention is the exact opposite of the purpose of mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness meditation starts from the premise that "life is suffering" and it aims to develop your ability to accept things as they are and live with the misery of your life. The practice of self-directed attention begins with the assumption that human life, although hard, is well worth living. The practice of self-directed attention creates satisfaction by developing your skill and wisdom to shape and guide the relationship between you and your life." John Sherman

"Looking at yourself is not something you do to discover who or what you are. Looking at yourself causes the destruction of the context of fear in which your mind was developed. Once the act is performed, a regeneration of the mind occurs in which the old psychological mechanisms that were the product of the fear disease are replaced by new, healthier mechanisms."

"The human mind can see nothing but itself. The mind that is sick with fear naturally creates a protective wall of mirrors that causes us to believe that what the mind shows us is all there is. This means that all we can see is the mind itself, guarding us from the horror that would await us if we got a hankering for self-reliant exploration of what is not seen. This is automatic and invisible to us for as long as we are in thrall to the fear." John Sherman

It's the conscious movement of attention toward the feeling of 'me' that counts. Use your attention to try to find within your conscious awareness a small, quiet feeling that, once seen, reveals itself to be you. Just you." John Sherman

"The act of looking at yourself produces an extremely radical change in the way your mind works. During the recovery period there can be considerable confusion and psychological pain.

Misidentification<br>A Meeting with John Sherman<br>July 25, 2015<br>MP3 download

"According to Buddhist texts and most of the wisdom teachings, misidentification is the sole cause of our misery. Those teachings tell us that all personal identification whatsoever is misidentification, and they therefore advise us to seek a state that is clear of all limiting ideas about our true nature. This is a perfectly understandable misunderstanding of reality, and no cause for blame. Truthfully, those who presented us with those teachings were courageous pioneers in the continuing effort to understand human being and human misery. But it turns out that it is not identification per se that is the problem. It is the identification with a diseased personality that is the true cause of all the trouble. And that problem turns out to be really easy to fix." John Sherman

"The sense of self, the experience of a me who has a relationship with its own mind, and the appearance of the mind itself occur in the mind. Mind is where all the joy, satisfaction, dissatisfaction, happiness, and unhappiness occur, along with the recognition and definition of those states. Over the centuries, we have created deeply appealing ideas that hold the mind responsible for all the trouble we face as human beings. From this springs the deep-seated, ancient tendency to demonize the mind, which takes many forms. In our work, we do not hate the mind and we do not seek to erase it, silence it, or transform it. We seek only to heal it from the sick fearfulness that has warped it and has spoiled our experience of our lives and of our very self." John Sherman

"From the very beginning, my work has been to understand the self-inquiry of Ramana Maharshi. I knew all along that the gift of the love of life that I had found was entirely a result of a desperate wrestling match I engaged in with Ramana's simple advice while in solitary confinement in prison. But having won the prize with no real practical understanding of how it had come to pass, I was not willing to inflict on people a half-baked message and offer no practical instruction on what to do. Now, twenty years later, I do have a clear, practical understanding of the essence of self-inquiry, thanks in large part to the patient willingness of many hundreds of people who have endured my failed attempts to say what I really wanted to say."
