In this video Gangaji lays out the egoic experiences of inflation and deflation in the search for truth. Often it can feel like you “get it” and then you “lose it,” all the while never questioning who? Who is it that gets it and loses it? Who are you? Here Gangaji illustrates how it is imminently possible not to think yourself but to simply be yourself. And in that being is the answer to who.
“All that the inflated ego can hold is a thought of the truth, a thought of peace, a thought of who one is. This is a huge thought, and it even points to reality, but it remains a thought. In our meeting I invite you to give up both deflation and inflation, and recognize yourself as the pure consciousness that holds it all.”
