In Zen, a sutra that speaks to our absolute and relative natures depicts seeming opposites as the foot in front and the foot behind in walking. While opposites are often distinguished in spiritual practice, they are actually two inseparable aspects of one being in movement. In this retreat talk for more experienced students, Mukti offers subtle guidance, pairing realization of awareness with realization of conscious being, moving in the world as the expression of Oneness Walking.
- The Dance of Absolute and Relative Natures
- The Knowingness of Being
- The Disappearance of the Experiencer
- Awakeness Above & Below the Neck
- Being Moved by the Expression of Spirit
Quotes from this CD:
“From the perspective of Oneness, there is no absolute and relative.”
“When we have a greater sense of our relative and absolute natures -- our human experience and essential nature as spirit -- the knowingness of these two seeming opposites can facilitate how they dance together and aren’t separate.”
"There's a difference between ‘let myself be’ and ‘I express as beingness itself.’"
“The more we sense harmony and balance, the more we can attune to when it's off, and that discovery and alignment can be endless.”
