Shusara addresses the challenges the people are experiencing in tonight’s session. Many are being called to walk though very difficult circumstances at this time and it is important to remember that you wouldn’t have the challenge without also having the capacity to walk successfully through it. While it remains necessary to journey through these situations from the level of the personal self, it also requires you to not lose sight of the bigger picture of who and what you truly are: Beginningless, Endless, Formless, Single, Being, Knowledge, Bliss.
Tonight's session revolves predominately around the concept of the "doer." Meghan shares her recent experience of functioning outside of the doer and Shusara engages with her to help bring Meghan, and our listeners, into deeper understandings. Using Meghan's fears around vulnerability and embarrassment, Shusara illustrates the attachment the personal self has to being seen a certain way and how, ultimately, you have no control over how others perceive you, regardless of how hard you try. In Truth, there is nothing to take personally actually going on here.
Shusara started off tonight’s session by clarifying how the personal self uses projection as a reinforcement for its stories. It is imperative that seekers become aware of how they utilize projection and to make a conscious effort to stop doing it. Shusara also addresses how to function when someone is projecting on to you and shares examples of how to deal with these situations.
In tonight's session, Shusara walks seekers through the heart-constricting, and ego-reinforcing state of mind of defiance. She gives us an understanding of how need, desire, attachment and resistance all work together in holding the personal self in place. Personal questions posed by members of The Kumara Center are also utilized as a means of pointing to what continues to hold everything in place.
Satsang with Shusara Tonight, Shusara addresses, in depth, the teaching of the Winning Position. From its initial imprinting, through its long-term impact on the individual, the Winning Position plays a large role in how humans react to triggers. This is an excellent session for anyone hungry for deeper understandings about the program we call human consciousness.
Tonight Shusara talks in depth about love and focuses specifically on how human love is predicated on behavior. While the primary focus of our work is the dissolution of the personal self, that equates, in worldly understanding, to guiding people to live from their hearts. We look at why the personal self has such a difficult time wrapping itself around all the paradox within the teachings and Shusara assures us that at a point in the journey all the contradictions make perfect sense.
Shusara begins tonight’s session with a call for everyone to listen and pay attention to the statements that you are Beginningless, Endless, and Divine, the world works to prove otherwise but it is important to continue to feed this understanding into your consciousness. The adversity that we experience in the world is truly a gift of the Divine, and Shusara equates every experience as God presenting you with a return ticket home; a ticket that few want or will accept.
Tonight’s session began with an analogy between the relationship of light/dark and non-polarized/polarized consciousness. Shusara illustrated the impact that resistance has on the Light, creating “shadows” that are taken to be real by the personal self and as a result occluding the Light from them. She also likened human consciousness to a buoy at sea being tossed about during a storm. The work of a spiritual seeker is serious and challenging, just like everything you strive to attain in life.
Shusara guides us through a type of visual meditation during this session in order to illustrate how the ego’s perspective is limited and how reactive mind functions. She also focuses on the illusion of both cause/effect and time/space. This session is all about the ego and will be very informative for seekers from all levels of understanding.
In an effort to reach all listeners with a universal message, Shusara focused tonight’s session on what all seekers can do every day in order to continue forward momentum on their spiritual paths. The first understanding she gave concerned paying attention to the things that cause constriction around the heart and working to drop whatever fear, desire, or belief that holds that constriction in place. Secondly, she talked about beginning to function from your own set of values versus judging yourself based on society’s value system.
