You Don't Need To Fix Yourself To Know True Happiness
In this video, You Don't Have to Fix Yourself to Know True Happiness, Gangaji is inviting you to stop imagining what it is about yourself that you need to get fixed, or get rid of. Stop imagining how you need to be deeper, or awake a hundred percent of the time. All of that is within the realm of imagining a problem or imagining that there are certain benchmark measurements.
"Problems do appear in people's lives and there are measurements. But I am inviting you to engage in an experiment: to just immediately being at home."
Unnecessary Suffering remains as long as there is limited identification with yourself as just a particular body, or a particular history, or the latest evaluation. When your attention shifts to yourself as the consciousness that everything is appearing and disappearing in, your unnecessarily suffering ends. Not your pain, not the pain that arises from compassion or the pain that arises from physical or emotional hurt. When unnecessary suffering ends, there is a resting place. When you know where home is, at any moment, in any circumstance, regardless of emotions or state of mind, in an instant you can return home.
In this video, Gangaji expresses her support for the end of your unnecessary suffering. "If you haven’t discovered that home is already present in you at every moment, my function is to point your attention there. If you have discovered it, my function is to challenge any concept you may have about it."
In this clip, Honoring Life Itself: The Wonder of Existence, Gangaji points to the sacred experience of Life Itself. She expresses her intention that you discover the beingness of life in a way that nothing can dislodge it. Then, no amount of trouble, or disease, or pain, or tendency to complain can dislodge the deeper peace, that is the surrender to yourself as Life.
Watch a sneak peek from A Prayer for Peace. In this video, Gangaji asks, "Is peace in the world ever separate from peace within your own mind?" She points to world peace as a reflection of the cultural mind, which in turn is a reflection of the individual mind. She leads several participants into the direct discovery of what is always already at peace, and asks each of us an earnest question: What is your responsibility for peace?

In this brief video, Who You Are Is Love, Gangaji confirms for all of us an essential truth.
"It is my great joy and honor to confirm you: who you are—not who you think you are, which is arising and disappearing from and into reality. Who you are is reality—radiant, joyful, unspeakable, mysterious, love. Reality is love."
