“If you are willing to experience anything directly and immediately, whether good or bad, joyous or hateful, you will recognize that what you are running from does not exist, and what you are running toward is already here.”
To live a life that is open, unprotected, and free is to stop avoiding what has been most feared. In this series of powerfully moving monologues and interactions, Gangaji speaks to the inherent openness of your being, an openness that can only be discovered in the meeting of whatever it is you are attempting to escape. She asks you to investigate how the preciousness of your life is deadened by the avoidance of negative emotions; to see that all of your efforts toward protection actually only augment your pain and turn it into suffering. Here is the invitation to stop turning from the truth of your own beingness and to discover the freedom of the all-inclusive heart.
