What is the Ultimate Truth? What is the relative truth? Guided Meditation. Talk. Q and A. with Christopher.
In the spiritual, mindfulness, religious, Buddhist circles, we use the word ‘practice’ with frequency. Practice provides a genuine sense of development, of moving forward, while a fading of practice can give the sense of being stuck or slipping back into old patterns.
Practises maximise attention on the world of mind-body, mindfulness, meditation and well-being – that means conventional or relative truth of our perceptions.
What is the Ultimate Truth?
Ultimate truth confirms a liberating truth, an awakening truth. Views differ from truth since views belong to the healthy, unhealthy or neither. Truth reveals discovery not tied to such human perceptions.
In terms of ultimate truth, the power of trust matters. Am I willing to drop the notion of practice, narrow or broad, and trust that I will not slide back into old ways? Can such trust serve as an open doorway to ultimate truth?
Can we discover truth not bound to perception, nor views, not bound to mystery, not bound to self, in any way at all? This question lies at the heart of the deepest exploration. Do lend an ear on the session hosted by Sangha Live.
FROM MINDFULNESS – CLEAR SEEING – TIMELESS LIBERATION
Monday 6 June to Friday 10 June 2022. 8 am – 9 am CET
Dharma Teachings embrace past, present and future knowing the value and the limits of the here and now. Mindfulness starts the process to notice, to reveal and take steps.
Clear seeing includes exploring and changing problematic conditions for suffering, gross or subtle. Liberation brings the best out of us. We no longer abide in a contracted condition.
These online sessions run in the mornings from Monday to Friday. They offer an opportunity for the Sangha to meditate regularly with a community of like-minded Dharma practitioners.
Format: Short dharma teaching/reflection, 30-minute guided meditation, and a short interactive Q&A.
