Somewhere below I have been sharing my practice sessions working on what to say about peace. When it came to the actual talk, there was clearly no way I could ramble on that long. I just slashed and burned on the fly, and didn't really know what came out of it.
Wow, this is exactly what I wanted to say. What a miracle????

Insight and "ordinary life"
The authenticity of these 3 sharings excites me. These are most positive messages and what we are all looking for.

I pushed these ladies hard
I want to know. What is it that can be obvious, with no "seeds" planted by conditioning or expectation?
(If you want to help financially to make these endeavors a reality, it will certainly be appreciated.) You may know that I thoroughly enjoy to record the content and feeling of an event. A few people are making these trips possible. If you are enjoying the results, your help would also be appreciated.
(Two videos, click here to open page) I have been made aware of this expo in Philadelphia Oct 22 - 24. A similar titled fair that I visited in Chicago kind of left me cold in past years. in fact, many of the speakers and topics seem to be motivated "what I need to get", what I need to add to my life to make it right. You could say motivated by our basic fear (of course that's a potent call to action).
Here are two that might be an exception.
One is Neal Donald Walsch, whose books I have not read. But this Youtube talk about fear sort of sets the tone to most of the rest of the Expo.
Carlos is a breath of fresh air. When I was with him I felt no need to wrap my head around any of the "trusty explanations" . We were just meeting in the moment and have the simplest conversation. I guess we played a game called, What is Here Right Now?
He is full of Joy. If you are close to Long Beach CA, it would pay to look him up.
Michiel has participated with NNH since the start of the web casts. Just a simple view may be the most effective at easing life. That ease is what allows total imbibing of that what IS, without any reluctance or fear. Perhaps it's the gateway of the satguru within.
Sophistication and explanations seem to do the opposite.
What is it that keeps us in seemingly endless cycles of repitition? Is it our turning away from any possible breakthrough?
Andreas from Sweden shares: Oh the talks with Dr. Shankar have been wonderful. Never heard him before, watching the first with just you and him made me burst into laughter. He seems to be authorative in his approach, questioning our beliefs - exposing them to us very directly.
- I enjoy hearing him say that life has its own way - whatever comes to man, it's just a reflection of life and that's how it has to be. Really doesn't get that complicated
- I would like to ask you - did you feel that some people were disturbed by his straightforwardness? That he seems to dismiss some questions before they are actually really formulated
- I myself take it as a way of pointing to what's relevant in his teaching - or "unteaching" of the mind.
I answered to him: Yes, I think that you are right that some people are disturbed by his directness. It is too bad that they miss out on his revelation, by clinging to ideas that they know and accepting only the hoped for verification of those thoughts. We can all take a lesson from how the human mechanism works. Even you and I are blocking new input on some subtle (or not too subtle) level. Yet Dr. Shankar is emphatic that there is nothing to "DO" about it. Let's just be open for that understanding to occur??
