I decided to title this blog; “Suicide letters” because these journals are a chronical of one year where a most profound process of Self-inquiry slowly revealed how this type of ‘spiritual practice’ is tantamount to what I called a ‘suicide mission’. (For reasons that will be evident after reading the first few web logs) I use the term ‘spiritual practice’ very loosely because in common parlance, the term ‘spiritual practice’ has come to denote a path or a process by which a person works to cultivate what he considers to be the spiritual aspect of himself. Generally speaking, ‘spiritual practice’ has come to center around such activites as meditation, prayer, yoga, contemplating the ancient texts, experiencing transcendental states, living by a moral code etc. So, I hesitate to label the process of Self-inquiry as a ‘spiritual practice’ because this particular investigation consists solely of looking for WHO it is that is experiencing such things as ‘spiritual practice’ and the myriad of other experinces that come and go through out life. You may say that Self-inquiry is simply an investigation into that which is the one constant for the continually changing world. This blog is simply one particular story of practicing Self-inquiry.
