Richard Lang on the "Headless Way" (in Mindfulness, Meditation)

Richard Lang on the “headless way,” or changing our perspective by emphasizing that we cannot see our own head, and that in our conscious experience, we are headless. in place of where our head should be, we instead perceive the world and its openness. as babies, this is how we perceive the world, but as we get older, we develop a sense of self and a sense of separateness from the world and begin to experience the world as if we have a head (except in rare moments of mindfulness). kind of a hard mindfulness concept to explain, as it is deceiving in how simple it is, but Richard Lang explains it really well in this video!
