Dance of Two

In this spring 2022 public meeting clip held in Sebastopol, California, Susanne speaks about the beauty of longing and its place in one’s spiritual journey back to wholeness. She also touches on how to view ego as a movement in consciousness, something that one can feel into and help dissolve, and not as an actual entity, (which entrenches separation).

Keeping Center in an Off-Centered World

In the midst of information overload, and the real pain of the world, it is easy to forget how to consciously inhabit ourselves. In order to retain equilibrium during a massive collective imbalance, one has to make an effort to give attention to the inner life. It is a matter of what one ultimately values: being identified with the outer world, or the beauty of your own center.

Your inner center is a welcoming place of balance, silence, and refuge. It is waiting for you to discover that you contain an unmoving ground of being within you. It is your birthright to live from this undivided place, and it is a gift to the world at large which is in dire need of true nourishment.

Hold Onto Reality

Choosing to remain present to the alive moment is a vital spiritual practice. As a collective we are experiencing ongoing waves of fear and information overload, which makes it increasingly challenging to remain present and connected to one another.

Making an inner decision to open to everyday reality, helps in maintaining sanity in the midst of increasing mass hypnosis. Resisting the impulse to go into inner division (expressing itself as judgement), helps to maintain inner integrity as well as connectivity to others.

Being here in a grounded way, and not in a virtual zone, (including lost in thought), is a gift that we can share and support one another in. Your attention is a power that you can harness and use for liberation.

The Importance of Being Present

The habit of looking outside of oneself is a collective trance that has to be broken, in order to be free. As long as we are in imagination about the future or constantly recycling the past, we are not able to access eternal truth that is always here.

Making an inner decision in choosing to be present, and then practicing bringing ones attention back to Now, is vitally important. It takes courage and strength as what is here can be hard to bear.

The Journey of Awakening: Integrating the Mind, the Heart & the Body

Realization has many stages. With the awakening of mind, the Self is clearly cognized as separate from relative experience. This brings the ability for the mind to rest in and as awareness. As the heart awakens, it sees the world and itself as united and undivided, birthing compassion for all of life. With the awakening of the body, form knows itself to be God, and that “all this is That.” Recorded with Awakening Together in February 2017.

A Map of the Spiritual Journey Part 2

While each person’s spiritual journey is unique, there are common themes and landscapes that we share. In this meeting I share my personal understanding of the evolution that takes place as we evolve out of being a self-centered individual, to being divinely centered (unity), and finally beyond to No-Self.

In Part 2, I fill in some gaps left out of the first meeting, and focus on people’s questions and inquiries.
