One of the ways we commonly define ourselves is by our “problems.” In this episode of Being Yourself, Gangaji powerfully challenges the assumptions we have about our problems and what it means if we can or cannot find the respective solutions. If we can’t solve our day-to-day problems, does that exclude us from living a free and authentic life? What really is the last obstacle that keeps one from discovering natural fulfillment?
From Santa Sabina Silent Retreat August 2019, an essential and hilariously told meeting with what is most feared. As Gangaji says, “To laugh is essential, that is where the teaching is. When you are laughing it’s impossible to think…But if you find you are not laughing in your life, that is suffering.”
If what you are searching for is perfect safety, perfect comfort, a life that is dedicated to accumulating more and more personal power, then the freedom I am pointing to is not for you. The invitation to accept the treasure of a life lived in conscious awareness is not an invitation to safety and comfort. It is an invitation to live life fully and completely, which is never ultimately safe and is often uncomfortable.
When we let go of our worldly desires we often replace them with spiritual desires. When we want enlightenment what is it that we imagine enlightenment will give us? Really? In this podcast Gangaji dares us to set aside all our desires, for just one moment, and to discover what is here, completely fulfilled, and awake.
In this clip from a 2019 silent retreat on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia, Gangaji offers the opportunity to discover the truth of your being in the simplest and most immediate way…just by inquiring into what is here? She leads a young woman from the realm of conceptualization to the reality of simply being here, as hereness itself, never separate from anything that appears.
