School of the Self

“Schooling is imposition of a thought pattern, hence, nobody can claim to be an original”, thundered the guru, “Success lies in choosing the best teacher.”

“Is there something called a school of the self?”, arose a meek, soft voice in the audience.

“Where is the origin of the self? You have been created from a genepool, taught by your parents and teachers, and disciplined by your bosses.”

“Yet, there is always a part that does not agree with them, a part that absorbs all inputs in a different manner than my counterparts, a part that says I am a unique combination of all the components that make me what I am.”

The guru appeared to be flustered, as he faced an unseen force with the potential to disrupt his business.
