Casting illuminating rays of spiritual insight, Mukti offers pointers on the different stages of the awakening journey. She initially shares about her own spiritual background and then guides us to the infinite sense of being that is beyond all limited beliefs and perceptions. Then, from our essential nature, she shows how we can move in the world in both an undivided, yet distinct way, and keep tending to a conscious path.
“Awakening really reveals the sense of our essence as that which is not defined by edge or boundary. It's not defined by past and future. It's not defined by history. It's not defined by preference.”
“There can be a way that separating narratives cut us off from new perspectives, from nourishment, and from connecting and being integrated into life in ways that are healthy.”
“It's important to look carefully at our understanding of the nature of conditioning and really look at the conditioning that causes us great suffering to see how belief structures, worldviews, or perceptions were established.”
“Seeing through our conditioning doesn't necessarily mean needing to discard it.”
“It can be very helpful to have a sense of being a very distinct individual through which divine qualities sing. We become a grounding rod for spirit or a form that's really tethered in and standing upon this earth.”
“Rest in what is prior to the opposing narratives, ‘I matter’ and ‘I do not matter.’ Get a sense of who you are, essentially, that’s prior to those narratives of your own, or maybe words of your parents or people from the outside whose voices and determinations have been internalized.”
