A story related to "anatta" and to the "me-me-mee centeredness":

Was in a group situation once where a clinical psychologist demonstrated a guided meditation and it got the group so very deeply into it (from beta to low theta) – it took us quite a while to come out of it “back to the surface”. She was gooooood! And she is local.

Then later on we had a guided meditation demonstration by a Buddhist nun, (a local also) who at every turn of the guided meditative process had to keep on commenting on her ‘story’ – what she had gotten out of practicing meditation and how good she was at it – that we never even got to experience/taste the actual meditation itself.
So how unaware, unconscious was that - from her part?!

I still do get that Buddhist Centre’s newsletter, but as yet haven’t attended.
