Have you been a seeker all your life and all you end up finding are more questions and doubts?

Do you have negative recurring thoughts?

Are you experiencing any kind of suffering such as:






Have you had that feeling that things are happening to you not for you?

Are you unhappy because you feel that things should be different with you or your situation?

The ITTIL technique ends suffering the moment it is practiced. This end of suffering is awakening now.

There is no path to follow. No special requirements to practice this technique. The technique can be used anywhere and at anytime. No pen and paper or special quiet place needed.

All that is required is your willingness to be free of suffering right now.

The ITTIL technique is based on the premise that all thoughts are equally untrue.

It is important to understand that this statement itself is not a belief.

It is, in itself, not true. It is the foundation of the ITTIL technique, however, and as such it is useful—essential, really—because without it, the technique simply doesn’t work.

Once the foundation for the technique is understood, then applying the simple steps is easy.

Without this foundation, however, it is unlikely to liberate you from thought identification and the suffering it brings.

I THINK, THEREFORE I LIE: A Radical Technique for Awakening Now

When to Apply the ITTIL Technique

1. Use the ITTIL technique on thoughts that cause psychological suffering:
  • When you are feeling depression, sadness, grief, anger, panic or anxiety, fear, shame, or guilt, and you associate this with a negative thought.
  • When you have a negative recurring thought that you can’t seem to shake.
  • When you are experiencing even the slightest resistance to the present moment.
  • When you are experiencing even the slightest resistance to the present moment.
  • When you have a sense of desire, lack, or longing.
2. Use the ITTIL Technique to end the search for Truth or lasting happiness outside the present moment:
  • When you’re thinking of using a technique, method, or path you believe will make you better than what you are right now.
  • When you’re using thought to find some philosophical or spiritual explanation, truth, scientific truth, or truth of any kind.
  • When you find yourself believing thoughts, and by extension paths or techniques, that seek fulfillment, happiness, truth, or anything considered lacking, especially enlightenment, some time in the imaginary future.
3. Use the ITTIL Technique to end all suffering

(Your last beliefs are shed in this application, and so using IE for this purpose comes in the final stages of the practice. These are the beliefs upon which most people base their identity—the idea of their own separate existence.)

Examples of such beliefs include:

  • The belief in the story of you—a you with a beginning (birth) and an end (death).
  • The belief in a you made up of a series of past events and future aspirations and hopes.
  • The belief in a separate you who can observe an external “reality.”
  • The belief in a you who only exists in imagination.
  • The belief in a future enlightened you.
  • The belief in a future unenlightened you.
  • The belief in a future you.
  • The belief in a future.
  • The belief in a past.
  • The belief in the necessity of belief itself.
