Here is a quote from "The Headless Way", a leaflet by Douglas Harding "Over the past [sixty] years a truly contemporary and Western way of 'seeing into one's Nature' or 'Enlightenment' has been developing. Though in essence the same as Zen, Sufism, and other spiritual disciplines, this way proceeds in an unusually down-to-earth fashion. It claims that modern man is more likely to see Who he really is in a minute of active experimentation than in years of reading, lecture-attending, thinking, ritual observances, and passive meditation of the traditional sort. Instead of these, it uses a variety of simple, non-verbal, fact-finding tests, all of them asking: how do I look to myself? They direct my attention to my blind spot - to the space I occupy, to what's given right here at the Centre of my universe, to what it's like being 1st-person singular, present tense."
I have discovered Douglas Harding and his extremely practical way of realizing your reality many years ago. Just got reminded again - you spiritual seekers out there should take a look at the headless.org website where many more videos and experiments /techniques are provided to discover who you really are. It always brings a smile on my face - I hope you can laugh too and find it amusing - never forget: the Buddha is smiling - and there is a reason for it :-)
