I am posting below the description of the second episode, which will address our unconscious patterns of behaviors and reactions. I have a lot to say about the topic and it may take me more than one episode. Please let me know if you have any specific expectations or would like to share something with the audience.

Thank you, and much love & Light your way.

“If we become totally aware, we have an extraordinary energy. This energy of awareness is freedom.”

Krishnamurti

Episode 2 is about freedom—freedom from the automated patterns and reactions that govern our lives. The more we free ourselves from these patterns, the healthier we become.

I ought to talk about my childhood to give you an example of imprinted patterns. What matters most is not so much what happened to us, but the conscious efforts we make to conquer these enslaving habits that were pushed down our unconscious.

I will address the concept of the Sacred Wound that I read in Bill Plotkin’s book, Nature and the Human Soul. Here is an excerpt.

“By experientially exploring your core wound, you can render it sacred. Your wound holds a key to your destiny. By surrendering to the grief and frightful memories at the heart of the wound, no longer distancing yourself from what you uncover there, your psyche is torn open so that new questions can be asked about who you are at your roots. These fomenting questions facilitate the death of your old story and the birth of a larger story, a soul story, one revealed by the wounding itself. The goal in sacred wound work is not to patch up your small story, or to heal the adolescent ego, but to disidentify from both. The wound becomes sacred when you are ready to release your old story and become the vehicle through which your soul story can be lived into the world.”

About new desert

Nurturing the Gift of Seeking is about a spiritual "destination," a journey within, a new beginning, that eventually takes us where we are meant to arrive. What matters is, first and foremost, our seeking spirit. Happy journey, dear fellow Sisters and Brothers!
