Where are you hiding?
As a result of the identity we have formed growing up, we generally assume that we are a human being made of the thoughts and memories and experiences we have had in our life. But this ignores something, possibly the only thing we can actually know to be true about what is. And that is simply exactly what IS - our awareness.
In this fascinating, yet jarring discussion - Julien and I tackle the concept of non-duality and what it means for our lives conceptually and most importantly, practically. We bring up many of the ego-based questions and concepts that come up when introducing a framework that relieves the ego as being the keeper of our identity.
We bring up how at it's core, non-duality really involves learning to take the concept of play to it's extreme - to be as aware, engaged, attentive and present as possible in every moment.
We talk about how when we define reasons for things we do or when we live through our thoughts, we create restriction. When we live from the space of awareness, our life can become effortless; we flow and lose any restriction.
We discuss what it means to follow desire as "I want to" and letting that be enough rather than assigning a reason or story to "why?" - and we cover how this can apply to many practical areas of our life including, work, relationships and hobbies.
