Day 5: Obstacles Along the Path

60 min - Talk


The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. In Day 5, our meditation focuses on observing how the body responds to 3 different mental exercises. We explore the struggle between the spirit and the flesh, that they have distinct aims yet are interdependent. Ravi discusses the temptations faced by Christ and His assertion that the Devil is part of Him, and links back to Buddhist teachings in which the Buddha makes the same assertion. We are given 2 inquiries through which to examine these struggles in our own lives.

Selfless action... sometimes I feel that I have responded in this way to a situation, but then the ego usually jumps in and attempts to reframe the action in terms of itself! Like a little child...
Is the ego and the Other equal?
We live in space and time so we can only aspire to that reality which is beyond space and time...but maybe we can get glimpses of it by using our practices steeped in and aided by the ego.  This is so fascinating...Thank you again for an amazing talk !
