At Home with the Inner Self is a collection of transcripts and interviews of Jim Burns. As a diagnosed schizophrenic, Jim was a man tortured by his outer self for much of his life, yet truly “at home with the inner self.” His illness gave him unique insight into psychology and the impetus to study the mind as, truly, his life depended on it. Perhaps his greatest gift was in leaving clues for other seekers looking for inner truth.
The key to the whole process lies in the fact that there is a fountain-spring of endless guidance and information within every human being. One only has to learn to get out of its way, to let the consciousness generate in a stilled and quiet mind.
“My answer,” he said, “is to know the Self.”
