Excerpt: “Silence is both the way and the goal of meditation. The silence that is being referred to is the silence of wakeful consciousness aware of itself as it really is; not projecting out fantasies and affects and mental objects, not deluding oneself, not being filled with chatter, not being sleepy and spaced out, not being in either desire or fear. It is the state of silence in which there is no mental activity, in which all the mind’s modifications have been stopped, that the Real Self emerges, and the ego and all of its illusions and all of its suffering dissolve forever.” Recorded during the Silent Retreat, on the evening of Saturday, August 12, 2017.

Excerpt: “The only way that God could satisfy His gambling impulse was to create a universe that was Himself, but in which He would forget everything He knew as God, and that He would divide Himself into both male and female, which made the world a total gamble, as you know. And not only that, but He would put some aspects of Himself that were male into female bodies and some that were female into male bodies - which made the gable even more extreme. And so every relationship became a gamble, every event, every project - and because a gambler loves surprise, God had to build in absolute surprising, unsuspected consequences to every action that would take place so that the very intelligence of God would be stymied by these unknowable, unforeseen consequences of every action and that everyone would therefore always be in a state of suspense.” Recorded on the morning of Saturday, July 15, 2017

Excerpt: “. . . Didier Anzieu, another French psychoanalyst who developed a theory of the ego, his most famous and relevant book in this context is called The Skin Ego, and I think the relevance of this is that the skin becomes the center of consciousness at a certain moment when the child is about to go through weening, but it has not yet made a full differentiation between itself and the mother - there is still the ‘I and the mother are one’ - but the skin surface becomes the place of the conflict, and the place where that conflict, in terms of the old Freudian Oedipus complex, still has its last remaining threads of relevance which is that the father or . . . the paternal function that helps to separate the child from the mother, and this is the place where skin ailments happen, acne and other things; they are the skin ego’s complaint against its forcible separation from the mother.” Recorded on the evening of Saturday, July 15, 2017.

Excerpt: Consciousness is magic in itself. To adopt the egocentric frame of reference means you have sacrificed your magic, your magic powers lie in that consciousness which is beyond the scope of the ego. And so you can live a humdrum life that’s very reasonable and probably deal with most of the forms of agony and suffering and barely muddle through and endure within that egoic frame of reference - but why miss out on the magic? On the miraculous? On the astonishing capacity of consciousness to transform the world?” Recorded during the Healing With Truth retreat, on the morning of Thursday, April 13, 2017.

Excerpt: “Can you feel the energy of life flowing through your organism? Do you allow the energy of life to fully flow through every cell of the organism? Are you conscious of what the energy of life feels like? Are you in direct contact with the power of life that keeps your body alive, healthy, and functioning at optimal capacity? Or do you block the flow? Do you limit it? Do you repress it? Do you have fear of too much life? Do you allow yourself to be bathed in the life energy? Do you know the source of the life energy? To know the life energy fully requires that you have attained a position in consciousness that contains the life energy, that your power of presence allows the full flow of infinite eternal life through Itself. But that which witnesses life is that which the ego fears as death. And so to be fully alive is to unify the power of life with the power of death - to realize they are one.” Recorded on Monday, May 29, 2017.
