Landlocked in Fur – Three Domains of Formless Presence (Retreat Talk)

Landlocked in Fur – Three Domains of Formless Presence


2014-12-30 – Retreat Talk – Landlocked in Fur – Three Domains of Formless Presence – While we have evolved to experience a defining sense of separate self, our potential is to awaken to the formless dimension – the pure awareness is our shared source. This talk explores how we can undo the identification with thoughts, emotions and feelings that keeps us landlocked and unable to trust and live from our naturally loving and radiant essence. (given at the 2014 IMCW New Year’s Retreat in Reisterstown, MD)

Thomas Merton says, “Life is this simple: we are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and the divine is shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story or a fable, it is true.”

Poem at start of talk: “Landlocked in Fur” – by Tukaram. From: “Love Poems From God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West” (Ladinksy, 2002)
