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.
And so, when you say, “What is the truth here?” as your homework, — “What is the truth here? What is the truth here? What is the truth here?” — without even knowing it, you are practicing Love. You are not being a fake lover, with ideas about how you’re supposed to be when you are being a “loving presence.” But, you are being the willingness to recognize That Which is True. Each time you say, “What is the truth of this moment?” — each time you do the homework — you are being a loving presence.
With Love and Pranams,
From Erich :)))))))
