Straight Talk on Spiritual Growth – South Asheville Kriya Satsang – Part 3/3
When experiencing hardship or difficulty, place your awareness on the spiritual eye, and ask, “Is this real?”. Without attachment, watch and wait for the answer to come. Relax and know that God, the universe, is taking care of it. Trusting the process is the key.
Choose to stay centered and perceive the world for what it is—a changing transient experience. Life is ups and downs. They yogi experiences hot, cold, pleasure, and pain but is not bothered by them. Remain centered no matter what happens.
If you want to know God, if you want to know this eternal Self, if you want to know peace, you have to make the choices that will direct you toward it. Those choices can be found in sources such as the Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita.
If you feel you are experiencing resistance in something, use a meditation technique, bring your awareness to the spiritual eye, and when calm and clear, bring that block into your awareness and ask, “How can I get beyond this? What can I do?” Wait for the answer and then act on it.
