Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

To experience your true self, or Essence, you have to move out of your self-images and thoughts about yourself into the experience you are having right here and now, absent of thoughts and self-images, which obscure who you really are.
We become entranced by our thoughts and overlook reality—the real experience we are having here and now.
The ego-centered mind, however, doesn't want you to stop paying attention to it, so it continually tries to engage your attention. It persists in this because this is how the false self is maintained.
 If you become aware of the natural initial thought that comes in, and instead concentrate on controlling what you allow yourself to become entangled with, the false self disappears, and all that's left is Essence—the real you who is experiencing this moment.
