What is looking... is dedicated to helping people through the process of seeing through the illusion of self. This is a classic criteria for awakening.
We go through a brief and highly directed pointing to the 'Gateless Gate' before seeing that there is no separate self. If this is what you want, we invite you to enter the same process. There is now an international network of people working through internet and social media, some resources are linked here.

Awakening: not what you thought
Recently we needed a disclaimer for the Liberation Unleashed forum.
A few of us had read Jed McKenna before arriving at the Gate. With a nod and a laugh to the Jed-i, please read on:
The method of inquiry used on this site may actually work, unlike many spiritual practices. It may change how you regard your self, your relationships and your world. Neither you nor we can predict how this will turn out for you. If you are already fragile, it may exacerbate any mental condition or disorder, or it may not. If your relationship sucks, it may improve it, or not. If you have strong religious or spiritual beliefs, direct experience may support them, or (in our experience) not.
You are responsible for your honesty, integrity and focus.
We advise that you be willing to take the risk and accept that a leap into the unknown is just that.
All we can do for you is show you the door, you have to walk through it.
Enter at your own risk."
This would have both thrilled and frightened me.
What do you think?
