    • calendar_today February 6th, 2022

    Have you had a profound glimpse of awakening/enlightenment but you’re afraid to dive deeper (or you don’t know how)? Here’s a direct guide to further exploring your true nature.

    00:00 Intro
    00:16 Could you have had an awakening and not know what it was? What is awakening, presence/consciousness, the role of distorting thought reflections.
    8:14 Lacking a context in which to place “awakening” experiences or foretastes
    9:48 The role of faith, doubt mass, and determination in enlightenment/awakening/realization. Distinguishing faith from “belief.”
    17:11 The deep dissatisfaction and suffering (dukkah) that can light a fire to seek authentic, living truth
    25:25 Can people with “good” lives and success wake up? The role of brutal honesty and authenticity in self-realization
    26:15 Medical professionals, “successful” people and the threat to identity that awakening might represent, the role of surrender and authenticity
    28:06 If you start down the path, DON’T STOP (here’s why), dealing with frustration and roadblocks
    34:03 The crucial importance of the present moment (rather than thought or stories ABOUT presence), the mind’s time-based hypnosis
    37:00 The difference between “experience” and “realization” and the loosening of thought-based identity structures
    47:00 Non-duality (no subject-object distinction, just experiencing experiencing itself)
    49:45 Suffering is the entry point, the role of retreat and surrender
