Call and Response Ep. 33 | The Real Guru Is Within, This Happened Because It Had To “There’s no Guru outside of yourself. Guru is not that body.

You wouldn’t think that w…

Call and Response Ep. 30 Family Karma, KD’s Mom I feel that my dharma is taking me into different direction, that family karma.

Call and Response Ep. 29 The Evaluative Mind, Grace, Dada Mukerjee “I said to Siddhi Ma, I said, ‘Ma, Maharajji said He has the keys to the mind, so to me that means that I am where He puts me, where He wants me to be. So, Ma, is it grace? In other words, is it His doing, or is it my effort that’s important? What’s the deal?’ So, She said, ‘Krishna…
 
Call and Response Ep. 28 Suffering, Gratitude and Burning Out So, I can feel this softening thing happening in my personal relationships and my everyday life.

Call and Response Ep. 27 Spiritual Experiences, Auschwitz and Bernie Glassman Recently I’ve been having a draw to learn or feel more of my tradition and the ancestors and who’s come before me, and what moved me that I saw online was when you were in the barracks in Auschwitz, (you) sat down and sang to the children. My parents survived the holocaus…
 
For my own karma, I would like to resolve those things that I’ve felt that I could have done better. Situations I could have handled better and I just wondered what your thoughts were on that, like, if you’ve hurt people in your past that you want to redress the situation but, I just wondered what your thoughts are, because sometimes people don’t w…

“We don’t know who we are. We don’t know what we really are. We don’t know what’s looking out of our eyes. We don’t know what’s experiencing the things we experience. We just experience, we wake up, drink some beer, go back to sleep and drink some more beer. That’s all we do. So, if we don’t know our Self, how are we going to know guru? How are we …
 
Given that we often refer to our minds as a wild monkey, that thoughts come up that we have no control over, it seems that, to be held responsible for thoughts that come up, that are not coming up because we intend them to come up, if there’s no intention, are we really responsible for the karmic consequences of our thoughts? “You don’t have to bel…
 
Call and Response Ep. 22 Meditation and Moping I don’t like the outside silence leading me to the stuff in my head. But when I feel it with the chanting, I feel like, movement, and I process things.
