  1. The Aspirant: Clarification

    February 5, 2010 by Cy Scofield, Category: Audio & Video

    Swami Radha

    In this next part of Swami Radha’s talks on The Spiritual Aspirant, she emphasizes the importance of clarifying one’s goals. Do your goals reflect bringing quality and awareness into your life? She encourages us to investigate our attachments thoroughly. Climbing the mountain of higher awareness may require you to shed some unnecessary baggage- “You can look at the various things [in your life] and say, I can give this away, I don’t need this, I can simplify my life.”

    In this video, Swami Radha elaborates on two useful tools for the spiritual aspirant: daily reflection to increase awareness and using symbols to help focus the mind. These tools help reduce the mind’s tendency to categorize, opening us to awe and wonder.
