SOMETHING REAL IS REALLY HAPPENING

This is an excerpt from the full talk. Full talk, guided meditation, guided asana practice, freeform asana practice, and end-of-class meditation all available at erichsciffmann.com

Erich: In the midst of whatever you are doing, wonder to yourself, ask God, “What is the truth here, really? What is the truth of this, really? What is the truth of this person I’m looking at? What is the truth of this sandwich I’m about to eat? What is the truth of this awesome sunset I’m seeing? What is the truth of this traffic jam?” Continue reading

THE ALL IS BEING ALL

This is an excerpt from the full talk. Full talk, guided meditation, guided asana practice, freeform asana practice, and end-of-class meditation all available at erichschiffmann.com

Erich: The clear insight — which sounds like baloney at first, until you get the hang of it — is: The All is being all. Period.

The All is being all. The All is being all. The All is all. There is nothing other than The All.

If there is nothing other than The All, then there is no enemy to The All. The mindset of The All, therefore, is calm, is fearless, is at peace, because there is nothing other than Itself to be in conflict with. And since you are the specific identification of The All, you should be feeling the peace, the fearless calm of Infinite Being as being YOUR being — every once in a while! At least once in a lifetime! At least once a day, try to get the sense of, “Wow, I only exist because The All is appearing as me.” Continue reading

Erich: There are a couple things we have been talking about lately. I don’t want to forget them too fast. Let’s go slowly through this part, because if you get grounded in this part, it will make a difference. Continue reading

THE EXACT MOMENT

This is an excerpt from the FULL TALK. Full Talk, Guided Meditation, Guided Asana Practice, Freeform Asana Practice, and End-Of-Class Meditation all available at erichsciffmann.com

The other thing I want to say right now, and I talked about this a lot last year, is LOVE.

It’s all about Love. It’s tricky to talk about Love without it sounding hokey. But, the definition I like for Love is: Love is the willingness to recognize That Which is Real about something. Love is the willingness to recognize That Which is True. It is the willingness to recognize what is Real, instead of whitewashing it with your current level of ignorance. Continue reading

MAKE THIS THE RULE

This is an excerpt from the full talk. Full talk, guided meditation, guided asana practice, freeform asana practice, and end-of-class meditation all available at erichsciffmann.com

Erich: Remember, it’s all about homework. The idea is do the homework. And make this the rule: DO THE HOMEWORK WHEN IT OCCURS TO YOU.

When it occurs to you to do the homework, and it will occur to you, do it right then — in the middle of a sentence, in the middle of dinner, in the middle of whatever you find yourself doing. Continue reading
