Pocket

Bestselling author Michael A. Singer talks about Karma Yoga and the path of surrender in this brief 14 minute video. Michael A. Singer is the author of the #1 New York Times Best Seller The Untethered Soul and The Surrender Experiment.

Join Michael A. Singer for a FREE 3-part mini course, “The Mind Can Be a Dangerous Place or a Great Gift” with the Author of The Untethered Soul,

How would you describe your relationship with your mind? Would you say it’s good? Terrible? Somewhere in between?

Michael A. Singer, author of The Untethered Soul and The Surrender Experiment, has created a three-part “mini-course” that focuses on these all-important questions.

One of the greatest lessons you will learn here is that trying to achieve happiness by “getting what you want” is actually limiting your happiness. You end up struggling with life instead of experiencing it. True happiness comes only when your inner energy is free to flow. That unhampered flow is, indeed, the goal of this course.

We will see that the most effective personal growth technique is to use life to remove your inner blockages, not compensate for them.

Sign up to watch all three videos in “The Mind Can Be a Dangerous Place or a Great Gift” series.

Have the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have

Pocket

In a world that lives like a fist, mercy is no more than waking with your hands open.

So much can happen with our hands open. In fact, closing and stubbornly maintaining our grip is often what keeps us stuck, though we want to blame everything and everyone else, especially what we’re holding on to.


There is an ancient story from China that makes all this very clear. It stems from the ways traps were set for monkeys. A coconut was hollowed out through an opening that was cut to the size of a monkey’s open hand. Rice was then placed in the carved-out fruit which was left in the path of the monkeys. Sooner or later, a hungry monkey would smell the rice and reach its hand it. But once fisting the rice, its hand could no longer fit back out through the opening. The monkeys that were caught were those who would not let go of the rice.

As long as the monkey maintained its grip on the rice, it was a prisoner of its own making. The trap worked because the monkey’s hunger was the master of its reach. The lesson for us is profound. We need to always ask ourselves, What is our rice and what is keeping us from opening our grip and letting it go?

The truth is that food is everywhere. Though the stubborn monkey believes in its moment of hunger that there is no other food, it only has to let go for its life to unfold. Our journey to love is no different. For though we stubbornly cling, believing in our moment of hunger that there is no other possibility of love, we only have to let go of what we want so badly and our life will unfold. For love is everywhere.



Philosopher-poet and cancer survivor, Mark Nepo opens a new season of freedom and joy–an escape from deadening, asleep-at-the wheel sameness–that is both profound and clarifying. His spiritual daybook is a summons to reclaim aliveness, liberate the self, take each day one at a time, and to savor the beauty offered by life’s unfolding.

Reading his poetic prose is like being given second sight, exposing the reader to life’s multiple dimensions, each one drawn with awe and affection.

The Book of Awakening is the result of his journey of the soul and will inspire others to embark on their own. Nepo speaks of spirit and friendship, urging readers to stay vital and in love with this life, no matter the hardships.

Encompassing many traditions and voices, Nepo’s words offer insight on pain, wonder, and love. Each entry is accompanied by an exercise that will surprise and delight the reader in its mind-waking ability.

Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender

Pocket

david-hawkins-quote
These two words – Letting Go – are very easy to say but can be challenging to actually do. Some of the things we might be trying to let go include:

  1. Past Events or Behaviors
  2. Fear
  3. Anger
  4. Desire
  5. Grief

lettingn-go-audio140 Letting Go describes a simple and effective means by which to let go of the obstacles to Enlightenment and become free of negativity. During the many decades of the author’s clinical psychiatric practice, the primary aim was to seek the most effective ways to relieve human suffering in all of its many forms. The inner mechanism of surrender was found to be of great practical benefit and is described in this book.


When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.Lao Tzu

Some benefits to letting things, related to the above list, go in your life are: happiness, success, health, well-being, intuition, unconditional love, beauty, inner peace and creativity.

Many of us think the key to happiness and success results from hard work, discipline and commitment, when in reality, many times the secret is surrendering and letting go to reach your goals.

Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender

Here is a brief video of Dr David R. Hawkins giving a A Lesson on Surrender. When asked to describe surrender to a three year old so that they know they are doing it right his response: “Quit trying.”
