Neelam ~ How to Break the Illusion of Separation
Sunday, July 7, 2019 @ 10am-12noon (Pacific Time)
10 am to 12 noon (Pacific Time – San Francisco, CA, USA) Time Zone Converter
The sense of I arises in Presence and that itself is not a problem at all. 🙂
However the moment we believe it and identify ourselves as “it”, as the sense of I, we experience suffering. We are habitually used to going by the sense of separateness that arises with that identification. We are also used to relying on the mind, in its limited way, to describe Reality for us and tell us how we are to believe things really are.
By understanding what the illusion of separation is and by addressing and inquiring into the sense of I, we can break the habit of separation. By learning to recognize strategies that are a substitute for Being Here, we strengthen the invitation to Awakening and to Embodied Living.
Areas of focus for this satsang:
• Recognizing the illusion of separation and the impermanence of all experience, and finding comfort in the Unknown.
• Inquiring into the sense of I, and learning to recognize strategies that stop us from Being Here
Neelam is a direct disciple of HWL Poonja (affectionately known as Papaji), whose own teacher was Ramana Maharshi. Neelam’s unequivocal commitment to Truth helps us turn inward and release underlying patterns of conditioning which block the recognition of our True Nature. With the utmost tenderness, she invites us into the same recognition of Truth that her teacher, Papaji, transmitted to her, while helping us to address all aspects of daily living, including past conditioning and trauma.
“Awakening is a shift from identifying yourself as this body to knowing yourself as Presence. Freedom means a true independence from the past, where our ability to Be Here and the action in the moment are not guided by our attachment to the arising past. To truly be Free we need to embody our recognition of Presence, and that requires growing of the capacity of our nervous system to Be Here. It is in the meeting of what arises that we find true and lasting freedom.”
