The Power and Pain of Projection

The Power and Pain of Projection

Projection is an aspect of our human minds that allows us to survive and to function, but projection can also lead us to suffer unnecessarily in all kinds of relationships and within our our minds. In the extreme, when we project fear and hatred onto the so-called “other”, tragically it can manifest into horrendous violence. So what can we do as individuals? In this episode, Gangaji addresses how  we end the trance of projection and recognize what is here, now.

Yes, Hope Can Be a Curse

Yes, Hope Can Be a Curse

“Our magical thinking cannot change the universe.” ~ Gangaji

In this month’s episode of Gangaji’s new podcast, Being Yourself, Gangaji challenges our deeply held concepts about hope and hopelessness. Sharing a very personal story she illuminates how hope can become an obstacle in our lives. What if giving up hope could show you a deeper freedom? Would you be willing to let it go?

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?

The Fierce Fire of Grace

The Fierce Fire of Grace
Stevie Leppard had everything anyone could want on the outside, lots of money, fancy cars, a successful career, but on the inside his own self-hatred felt intolerable. Suicide seemed like the only way out. It was grace that would eventually save him, but it was a fierce grace.  How Stevie would go on to meet Gangaji is just part of his amazing story.

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.

A Gap in the Road

A Gap in the Road

It was the middle of the night.  Harriet Watson was driving down a dark, snow-covered road alone, barely able to see what was in front of her.  Suddenly, she was startled by a loud thud.  In the moments that followed, her life would change forever.  From the frustration of a life of rigid rules and beliefs to the experience of profound freedom, this story is a testament to the trustworthiness of life.
