The Kiss of Reality
June 1, 1996 PM

What does it mean to “be real” or to “get real”? Whenever we try to adopt some notion of who we think we are or what that should look like, it’s ultimately coming from an idea, an image. In that habitual search for ourselves, as Gangaji says, we continually overlook what is already real within us, needing nothing to augment its existence.

In this video fresh from the archives, Gangaji deconstructs the components of personal identification, rendering who we think we are down to its essence –­ permanent, unmoving, undying reality.

"As your body, emotions, thoughts, and circumstances change, there is that which does not change. That is called reality, and there is nothing that is separate from it."
