In spiritual circles, there is often an emphasis on dismantling the ego. Yet this can reinforce the project of getting rid of something in order to reach an imagined awakened state of being. In this satsang, Mukti reveals that what is usually referred to as “you” is a myriad of constructed mind and body habits. Instead of trying to eliminate the ego, she offers a simple and direct teaching to see through these habitual patterns to the inherent universal nature prior to the construct of “you.” From here, we come to live from a non-egoic state and in natural harmony with the way life moves every moment.
