We Need to Talk
As I do every year, I will soon leave India at the start of monsoon. Usually this means going to the U.S. to visit a few communities to give talks based on my book, spirituality, mysticism and other topics of interest in our awakening world.
This year I’m going to do something a little different: with few exceptions, I’m going to talk about only one thing. Because it is the most important thing the world needs to hear right now.
Using the unique lens of mysticism through which I view both Divine and earthly realms, I’m going to reveal what love really is. And it is not what what most people think.
I’m going to talk about why humans can’t get out of bed every morning and just blissfully love themselves.
I’m going to talk about why love hasn’t been able to make suffering go away.
I’m going to talk about how the human experience has been about relishing deeply that which is not love while simultaneously yearning deeply for love.
I’m going to talk about how rejecting pain and fear and judgment is not an act of love.
I’m going to talk about free will. And sorrow. And loneliness. And compassion. And forgiveness.
In other words, I’m going to talk about separation from God.
And then I’m going to talk about reuniting with God.
And I’m going to talk about genuine awakening.
And rising up.
And being real love.
Our understandings of love can go far beyond feel good memes and random mushy moments. We’re capable of MUCH more than that, and it is time to get serious about realizing our individual and collective potential for a greater world. If you’re ready to be inspired to incite real love, invite me to your community. We’ve got a lot to talk about.
I will be in the following general areas during summer and fall 2016:
U.S. West Coast region in July/August
U.S. southern and central region in August/September
U.S. East Coast region September/October
Europe and ?? starting in November
Invite me to share in your group, home, church, community center, retreat, webcast, radio or television show, or publication. This is an important time for us to gather together, and I look forward to doing so with all of you.
Abundant love (the real thing) to all.
P.S. My recent Buddha at the Gas Pump interview has now been viewed more than 13,000 times and has prompted numerous substantive conversations in diverse online and live communities. Please feel free to share this and my award-winning book, Unwitting Mystic, with your friends, loved ones and communities if you feel it could be of benefit.
