In this unique retreat talk, Mukti shares flavors of her own journey and relationship to spiritual teachers, including Jesus, Yogananda, Buddha, and Adyashanti. Through stories and insights gained from her exploration, she reveals what it means to discover the great intelligence that informs and expresses in each individual, and how we can land in the deep trust and guidance of the inner guru.
“Over time (in my spiritual path) the particular flavor and presence of the guru would seem more like a doorway to a kind of a mystery that some might call the sat guru or the inner guru.”
“Sometimes it can feel like you’re on a bungee cord and you jump from the self as you’ve known yourself to be in your developing life, and you find yourself in a place of free fall.”
“In this whole journey, we’re getting our legs underneath ourselves and feeling what it is that we resonate with, what it is that we know, what it is that we sing, and what is it that sings us, informs us. And as that clarifies and actualizes more and more, that sense of need of the guide or the teacher diminishes in that form.”
“Trust your own sense of things. And even if you’re not sure what to trust, you try things out and then you learn what’s trustworthy and what’s not. That’s always really valuable because that’s some of the deepest learning.”
“What realization can offer is the knowledge that the wisdom and intelligence that informs this voice of the guru is our own, in the sense of what we essentially are.”
