It is easy to see from your own life experience that no matter how much you try to run away from hurt, you still experience it. When you stop running, turn and experience what is chasing you, when you remain open and unprotected, you are free. Are you willing to be free?
Where is your attention? Our minds are designed to recognize what is “wrong” and needs fixing. This aspect of our ego serves our survival as human animals. There is nothing wrong with this aspect of our ego, but if we only look for what is wrong and neglect to honor what is already whole and free, then we suffer unnecessarily. Wherever you find yourself, you can take this moment to shift your attention to what is right: the wonder of existenc…
In this clip, The Wonder of Existence, from a meeting that took place in Mount Shasta, Gangaji points to the sacred experience of Life Itself. She expresses her intention that the beingness of life be discovered in a way that nothing can dislodge it, so that no amount of trouble, or disease, or pain, or tendency to complain can dislodge the deeper peace, that is the surrender to yourself as Life.
What is your moral compass? What is your true north?

Deeper than any story of suffering is the direct experience or pure loss and desolation. Meeting that is what allows the deepening of truth and surrender. This fall Michele is standing alongside Hillary Larson and Mark Nort…
The first thing you notice about Michele Sondheimer is the light that pours out of her. Her eyes transmit an undeniable knowing that has borne the pain of shattering loss and stayed true. I’m so grateful to her for sharing herself with us all in this intimate conversation about waking up, love, grief, and what inspires her to continue to support Gangaji’s work.
