The Peeled Onion

a: Peeling the onion ~
b: digging into your heart/psyche

What: The phrase is a buddhist notion. As a person digs into themselves, it is not a single event or enlightenment or emotion relief. It is an organic process of revealing and removing a multitude of layers. This process has many layers, like the layers in an onion. If you can't understand this, go buy an onion and peel it. Layers of what? There are layers of memory, emotion, concepts and life as it really is.
