What does it feel like to want to support? What does it feel like to want to control? In this video Gangaji makes a clear distinction between the joy of supporting ourselves and others and the misery of believing we can control. She speaks of letting go of control as the mark of spiritual maturity and invites you to catch fire in the joy and the peace of simply letting go.
“Spiritual maturity has nothing to do with how many years you’ve prayed, how many years you’ve practiced or not practiced, how many years you have been good or bad. At the most basic level, spiritual maturity is the realization that you are not in control.”
