Y MOR ME?
“The memory of all memories”
Shortly after a 7 day Vipassana meditation retreat in Southern Thailand, words just starting surfacing from nowhere…these words would ultimately become the heart of the book I wish to share with you all called: “Y MOR ME?”
It all started with the very title of the book. One day while I was day dreaming, for no particular reason or so I thought back then, I took the word “Memory” and started playing with its syllables. To my surprise, the word memory had an intrinsic message for me…I came up with Ymorme? Or by converting it into full words: Why More Me? It may seem nothing but a simple question, and one that may not make much sense…but for me it would be the sentence to set me eternally free.
I came to the conclusion that memory is the cause of my reality, of “me”. Think about it, without memory every moment would be a new one…we wouldn’t even exist, I mean the physical body and the mind would, but our self-identities would disappear, as they are all based on memories. Everything we do on a daily basis is rooted in memory. We only know how to do daily activities because we have memories of them, creating habits. We know people, their personality and life stories because of memory. The past and future can also only exist thanks to memory. The dualistic nature we live by, the “good” and the “bad” experiences, is also a creation of the memory.
After realizing the previous, new questions arose from pure curiosity…
Was there anything beyond memory, beyond my perception of life and self-identity, beyond little “me”?
What would happen if decided to let go of my memory, if it was possible at all? Could I live without it?
Could I transcend the dualistic reality I had always believed to be the ultimate truth?
The book “Y MOR ME?” is the answer to all these questions and more…
I have chosen to leave the price of the book open, so you can freely donate what you feel is right. All donations will go towards further sharing of the message of this book.
