Love Will Not Be Held Back

Love Will Not Be Held Back Love will not be held back

November 19, 2000 AM, Maui, Hawaii

As human beings, with our innate and huge capacity to love, we naturally project that love outside ourselves onto the teacher, the lover, the child, another. But is it possible that in assigning love to another we somehow inadvertently exclude ourselves from love? The conversations in this beautiful meeting from the archives focus primarily on the topics of love and the true meaning of devotion.

Sometimes we imagine it is safer to love someone other than who we think we are. This is the story of separation: ‘What I love is not myself.’ But if you are to love fully and completely, you will never find yourself separate from that love. Love is consciousness. Love is peace. Love is who you are.


Simply Open

June 20-21, Online Weekend Retreat

What does it mean to open to yourself? In these highlights from the June 2020 online weekend, Gangaji leads each participant into a deepening discovery of what means to live a life of true openness.

“I invite you to use our time together to discover what it means and how it is relevant to your own life in any particular moment, to open. Simply open. The help that is finally available is your mind’s own surrender to its source.”

Opening to Loss

Opening to Loss Opeing to Loss

Grief and sadness are natural. We dont have to pretend that getting a diagnosis of cancer is good news or that losing someone we love or something we love is good news.  Its not that.  It’s about the willingness to open to reality in a way that doesnt try to manage it or be one step ahead of it.

Grief is not the Enemy

Grief is not the Enemy Grief is not the Enemy

Gangaji speaks with a woman who has recently lost her husband. When she finds her usual strategies are not working, Gangaji invites her into the center of grief, to discover inside it what is universally true, in pain, in grief, in everything. Then life is enriched by attachment, by grief and by the love for the one you have lost.

The End of Not Good Enough

The End of Not Good Enough The End of Not Good Enough - Gangaji and Man with hands in Namaste

August 17, 2019 AM ~ San Rafael, CA

For some, the fear of not being good enough can be as big as the fear of death. But what is not good enough? By what standard is that measured? Here Gangaji exposes the inner grim reaper of “not good enough,” and turns it into an ally for freedom.

“If you can take a moment to be absolutely and completely not good enough, then the conversation is finished, and there is a great discovery in that. It’s a shift that affects everything. You don’t want the fear of not good enough to keep you from living your life freely and following the direction of your soul.”

Everyone has experienced some measure of pain and hurt, but do you want to live your life in fear that? In this video from the archives, Gangaji takes us on an exploration into our common defense mechanisms to avoid being hurt, the cost of which is living a life free to love without restraint.

“If the preciousness of life is being lived in avoidance of hurt, the result is a dead life filled with unnecessary suffering.”
