Day 3: Subtler Levels

60 min - Talk


We begin in meditation with an invitation to come back to breath again and again. We continue our studies in Chapter 2 with an investigation of our animal vs. spiritual natures and how we might become more attuned to receiving the whispers of the slightly subtler levels of our being. In Chapter 3, Ravi invites us into a self-inquiry on our personal resistance to change.

Fear of losing the "known" is indeed the great fear, in my experience. As Ravi has pointed out elsewhere, "abhinivesa" one of the Klesas or hindrances listed by Patanjali, is often translated as "fear of death" (a big unknown!), but it might more accurately be rendered as "fear of losing our grasp on the status quo". The universe is characterized by a flow of change - yet we find it so challenging to embrace that, and instead cling to the familiar. At least I do! In gratitude for this presentation, Namaste.

With gratitude and appreciation for the relationship of Soul and Spirit. For the presentation on Authority comes from personal experience. For the complex relationship between known and the unknown. For the subtle differences that are in our lives... namaste
The suggestion for the "homework" is very much something that I am considering at present,  is it the fear of the unknown or the fear of the known that I am experiencing and object to?  Another great talk thank you!
