Me and My Illusion
Recorded On: 
October 3, 1999
Details
What do you think is happening? What story are you telling yourself about yourself? We develop “illusions” using powers of mind: memory, projection, dissociation, interpretation. In the extreme, we create outlandish conspiracy theories. In our daily lives, we often use the power of mind to create needless suffering. This month, we examine these patterns and Gangaji helps us unearth the jewel in being disillusioned.

 

 “It is very useful to recognize illusions.  It is also crucial to recognize that regardless of illusion, you are present. You are the power behind illusion and the power behind truth.”

Gangaji reflects, not for the first or the last time, on the extraordinary times we are living in.

In a moment of the most pristine, indescribable depth of silence, it is possible to discover the truth of who you are. Gangaji is inviting you, just as you are, into this space of stillness, where the mind clings to nothing.
