In this video Gangaji addresses these age-old paradoxes: If there is a benevolent, intelligent God, how can there be so much suffering in the world? Do we have a choice or is it choiceless? Is enlightenment or realization the ideal that eliminates paradox?
“There is a great shift that occurs in consciousness in a moment of grace, whereby the mystery of life, the unbearable paradoxical nature of reality, is joyous rather than tormenting. Whereby in the midst of horrifying ugliness ca-n be revealed limitless beauty. In the midst of profound stupidity, there can still be intelligence.”
