Excerpt: “Meditation’s purpose is to enable you to sit on the Lotus Throne, the Sri Nalinasana. The Buddhists speak of it very clearly, and yet, indistinctly because they refer to ‘Aum Mani Padme Hum’, the ‘Diamond in the Lotus’. But where is the lotus? What is the location of the Lotus Throne? How do you get there?” Recorded during the August 2017 silent retreat on the morning of Sunday, August 13, 2017.

Excerpt: "And so it will be very difficult for you to think your way out of the trap of the ego – and this is why the opening of the heart is so important because it is only the feeling of love that will raise you out of the misery of the ego level of consciousness – and this is why it is so important to recognize that the nature of God begins with that realization of divine love. God is more than love, but God is love – and our own love for God is that level of resonance which invites in all of the power and Presence of that infinite Self that you are." Recorded during the Rainy Season Retreat on the evening of Saturday, October 28, 2017.

Excerpt: "One could use the metaphor of an infinite sheet of cookie dough. And there is a cookie cutter that has cut a certain amount of this dough and separated it out—that's the ego. Now, before it's baked it can be put back in, and once it is smoothed out as part of the sheet of cookie dough it loses its identity doesn't it? It's simply the entire infinite sheet of sweetness, but once it's been separated out into a tiny little cookie and baked, it can't be put back; that's ego life. And so because the ego is a cutout, and is a form that has been separated from its own essence and baked into hatred, fear, envy, despair, all of that produced simply by its removal from its Infinite Source, the ego cannot be healed because it is the very cutting off from its infinite essence that is the problem." Recorded on the morning of Wednesday, December 9, 2015.

Excerpt: "What does Santa Clause give? He gives you a present. Most people only have a past. Santa gives you a present - he gives you Divine Presence, that's what the gift is under the tree. And what is the tree, it's the Tree of Life, it has to be evergreen, right? When you have arrived at the Tree of Life and the star of Bethlehem, the star which is that ultimate point of Infinite Light that is the absolute image of Shiva and you are within that field of delight, of joy that is Christmas, the season of Christmas, and everyone comes to the tree and there are gifts for everyone because Santa was very generous, and it's all there, then everyone receives a present . . . . It is the Presence that is the real gift, and if you are willing to accept Santa's gift of eternal, ever-green Presence, then you are liberated." Recorded during a Silent Retreat, on the morning of Thursday, June 15, 2017.

Excerpt: "Because all that is directly known by the knower is consciousness itself. And consciousness places a grid over the known, objectifies it, calls it a world, calls it external, divides the external and the internal, and creates an illusory identity to function within the realm of the known. Once that illusory identity is believed in, and the positor of all of these positings is forgotten about, the consciousness has trapped itself within an illusory matrix within which it will inevitably be traumatized, and it will create melodramas of persecution, of needing to be rescued, or being a rescuer, or a victim, or all three cycling around one another. And the only way out of this eternal melodrama of suffering is to recognize that the one that posited itself in any of these positions of rescuer, victim, or persecutor, is not within that matrix at all, and was never born into a world, nor separated from consciousness in its pure form—which in the mythic construct is known as God." Recorded on the morning of Friday, April 1, 2016.
