*Topics that Neelam may address in this program. Topics are dependent on the flow of the program and interest from the students.
In our last two programs we have been exploring and enjoying the deeper, more direct aspects of knowing ourselves as Presence — and there’s really nothing more powerful to know that than our own Direct Experience.
I want to continue this deep and direct exploration in our upcoming 3-week program, also including a little more information about the Nervous System and Brain for students who are newer to me.
We will be diving even more deeply into Presence and into the very powerful exploration of “Are you the Doer?” and the “Who am I?” Inquiry.
The question of Doership brings up a lot for most everybody — which is great 🙂♥️ and the role of Satsang 😁 — and the misunderstanding can go both ways — either not realizing experientially or directly the Truth of the statement “we are not the Doer “or using “I am not the Doer” as a thought that conflicts with or contradicts the natural movement that arises here.
I want to remain in this very experiential and practical exploration with you.
I also want to continue with many of the themes from the last program that we did not have a chance to address fully — karma/ destiny and free will, dreams/ visions and the role of the Teacher in Awakening etc.
I also want to take some time for you to experience the very direct and powerful “Who am I ?” Inquiry.
Ramana Maharshi, after some years of quiet absorption in the Natural State — our True Nature — and in response to a question and a desire for instructions from a disciple who was moved by the deep state of Silence that Ramana was immersed in has written the instruction to the very direct and powerful “Who am I?” Inquiry.
It is yet another very direct way to know the Truth of the statement “I am not the Doer” and I am very much looking forward to sharing this with you as well as to our time together.
Homework -1 page max confidentially send to firstname.lastname@example.org
1.What is your experience of Doership?
How do you hold that question / understanding in your moment by moment experience?
2. What is your experience of asking yourself the question — as you are sitting here, right now, can anything be different in your experience?
3. What is your experience of asking yourself the question of — as you are sitting here, right now is anybody doing this?
Please share anything else you would like me to know re: these questions and your experience around — “I am not the Doer”.
