During a particularly volatile time in history, Mukti addresses an assortment of topics, culminating in an invitation, and reminder, that we can always return to the orienting principles that are most foundational in our spiritual practice.
“Often when there’s a lot happening on a larger world stage, and also in our own lives, it can be especially helpful to return to some basic foundations of practice.”
“Trust those instincts in yourself. Follow your own innate curiosity that really connects with your Being. Not just curiosities of thought, but a curiosity that may cause you to lean in or want to sit with something more deeply.”
“. . . there is a quality of grasping and pushing away—desire and aversion. When . . . you want to re-orient and bring your practice back on track, it can be helpful to allow these energies to be present, but also to recognize the presence of stillness or spaciousness that is not defined by these energies. Both can co-exist for a time, and eventually the two will begin to harmonize and blend.”
