The Truth of Self


'Civilisation is selfishness. Thought is self. All self is in me. But not all of me is self. The sweetness of life perceived in me is being - not self. Self is the powerhouse of living. Love is the powerhouse of life.'

This recording was made at two evening talks given in The Victoria Rooms, Bristol, 19 and 22 August 1991, during one of Barry Long's 'Teaching Weeks'. The talks each evening included long periods of questions and dialogues with the audience which have been omitted on this recording. The material has been edited to allow Barry Long's main theme - The Truth of Self and Self-realisation - to be stated comprehensively on one 96 minute recording.
