“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” This quote from the Gospel of Thomas is often interpreted to mean that it is one's job to bring forth what is within in order to fully awaken. Yet, it is the very sense of doership that gets in the way of awakened presence naturally coming forth. In this talk, Mukti offers a unique and fresh perspective on what it means to bring forth awareness and how softening out of directing one's experience opens us to a greater expression of our true nature.
Quotes from this Download:
“There can be the sense of something knocking at the back door, hunting you down, or pulling you forward like a sense of yearning. And it may not be conscious but essentially this drive is to destroy the sense of someone at the center.”
“The invitation is to let go of any holding back, of anything being held apart.”
“There can be an inquiry of holding forth without a sense of you.”
“This moment is its own purpose.”
