GF Podcast Tag: A Conversation With Gangaji

Finding Home

Finding Home

Six years ago, we started on a journey and we called it A Conversation with Gangaji. The original question was, what if you could sit across the coffee table from Gangaji and ask her anything you wanted? We covered everything from relationships to money to death to sex to suffering to enlightenment. We started the first episode with the topic of chronic pain and ended our last conversation with the question, what do you really want? Together we got to listen to Gangaji always point to the deeper truth of the matter. And when all the questions were finally asked, all it really was about was finding home.

Taking the Spiritual Bypass

Taking the Spiritual Bypass
There’s a lot of debate, and perhaps some strong opinions, about what it means to take the spiritual bypass.  It doesn’t necessarily mean addressing every emotion that comes up. But it also doesn’t mean pretending everything is fine when it’s not.  When Gangaji says you don’t have to process everything or fix yourself in order to be free, what exactly does that mean?  Would you take the bypass in order to be free?

What Do You Really Want?

What Do You Really Want? The Trap of the Measuring Stick with Purple Iris

What does your life stand for?  What do you really want?  If the answer is freedom then what does that look like? Does the answer you come up with match your life, how you live your life? Is there something you’re holding onto that keeps you from truly realizing what it means to be free? These are potent questions. And what happens in this particular exchange with Gangaji is different because it is the beginning and end of all conversations.

Longing to Be Good

Longing to Be Good

With rare exceptions, human beings are innately good. Being in alignment with that goodness feels spacious.  We can be greedy, cranky, critical, jealous, but being good? Now that’s seems like an infinitely better way to go. The problem is that being good can be a trap unto itself. Does our capacity for a deeper awaking rely on our willingness to cultivate this goodness within us? Or are we inherently good, without doing a thing?

The Illusion of Control

Control might ultimately be an attempt to fend off our deepest fears.  It can show up in all sorts of ways in our everyday lives.  It can interfere with relationships.  It can also be exhausting.  Some people are self-described “control freaks.”  For others, control can show up in more subtle ways.  Fessing up to our control issues is a pretty tender thing, but when the source of it is finally met,  the possibilities are endless.

Waiting to Heal

Waiting to Heal

When trauma happens, it can change the trajectory of a life. It can color how we see the world around us. We can retreat. We can act out. And we can certainly spend our lives running from it, managing it or even trying to heal it. How do we come to terms with even the deepest of wounds without suffering from the identification as someone who has been hurt or wronged in some way? This episode takes a surprising turn and is one of the most revealing conversations so far.

Willing to Lose

Willing to Lose Willing to Lose - Ripples in Calm Water

Gangaji has always said that inquiry isn’t theoretical, it’s about real life. This episode is a perfect example of that. Gangaji experienced a serious injury recently. She’s going to give us an update, but we’re also going to take this as an opportunity to continue our conversation on the body. Difficult things happen to people, no matter the level of their awareness, so how does that play out with someone like Gangaji? How do we face our fear of losing when unexpected things happen in life? Gangaji addresses all of the above, and more, on this new episode of Gangaji Radio.

The Space Between Thought – An Exploration into Silence

The Space Between Thought – An Exploration into Silence Facing the World - You Don't Have To Fix Yourself To Know True Happiness

It’s easy to experience silence or stillness in the midst of deep meditation or in a moment of appreciating the beauty in the world. But what about the times when we’re upset or angry? How about the times when our sense of well being is swept up in whirlwind of fear or sadness? How do we know that who we really are is silence and why is it important? We’ll also be talking about difference between space and spaciousness, where intelligent thought comes from, and much more.

Karma and Choice

Karma and Choice

A lot has been said about the subjects of karma, fate and destiny. Is the course of our lives predetermined? How is it that some people seem to live a life of abundance while others face huge difficulties? Most of us have probably experienced a bit of both. Is it possible to change our karma? What is the difference between choice and choicelessness? In this episode Gangaji also shares her thoughts on responsibility and the power we have over our karma.
