The vantage point from which we perceive ourselves and life significantly impacts our state of being, the degree of our suffering or equanimity, or how we experience malalignment or alignment. Mukti offers powerful inquiries that can shift limited perspectives and awaken a wider view of the stillness of our essential being and the inter-connectedness all of life.
“There’s a tendency to entrench, concretize, and identify with given perspectives and make all kinds of conclusions that sometimes have a tendency to cause us a lot of suffering.”
“It’s really quite revolutionary to contemplate and to hone our perception of that which is not defined by the overlay of thought.”
“The territory of contemplation is being willing to not figure something out or resolve it on the level of thinking mind, but still being willing to know on the level of being, on the level of direct experience. This is a powerful contemplation and the true spirit of inquiry.”
“One can have an experience of being a very distinct person, while simultaneously having a sense and knowledge—through direct experience—of one’s self that is infinite, that is not defined by a fixed location or boundary.”
