2012-12-29 – (retreat talk) – Our suffering arises from unlived life–the fears and loneliness and hurt that we have been unable to digest and include in our heart. This talk explores our conditioning to become dis-embodied and the blessings of spiritual realization that arise as we inhabit our aliveness fully.
Inside this clay jug
there are canyons and
and the maker of canyons
and pine mountains!
… the God whom I love is inside.
translated by Robert Bly, from The Kabir Book: Fort-Four Ecstatic Poems by Kabir (1977)
