This quote is from last weeks satsang/meditation. You can listen and meditate to this excerpt by playing this video below:
It is a bit long (10 mins) but if you take the time you might experience the deep peace & fulfillment I am conveying in the talk.
"You can't do it with thinking, you have to let go of trying to do it with thinking and surrender.
There's really no doing in it. It's just relaxing; relaxing into what is already here, what is already happening below the mental chatter.
Below the mental chatter is just consciousness, peace, freedom, bliss, love. It's all of this.
The pure, clean, intoxication that is life itself.
You just keep surrendering deep into this moment.
It's like those alka seltzer tablets, you put them in the water and they dissolve. They dissolve bubbling into the water until there is nothing left.
When there is nothing left, there is just peace.
This is the offering that is in this moment.
Once you're in this peace, even if you are just feeling it a little bit, then you're home free.
It's just letting your attention sink more into this peace; into this divine intoxication that is life itself.
That is not somewhere else that you need to go to. It's the essence; this moment.
At one level you can drink it in every breath yet at another level its beyond breathing all together.
At one level it's what every thought is made of it's what every thought is vibrating. At another level, it's completely beyond thought.
At one level, it is in every action, it's the expression of every action. At another level, it exists beyond all action as utter stillness.
It's the same thing, just different levels of experience; one level no better than the other.
But first we get you to the stillness. First we get you to what is beyond thought. So we can get really drunk together on life.
However you are is totally perfect. It is just allowing that.
And in that you start to sip you start to taste, you start to sink into the peace that is the essence of everything.
There is no mental discourse here. no intellectual beliefs, no philosophy. All of that is ugly compared to this peace.
I'm inviting you to directly be what you are at your essence.

This quote is from last week's satsang. You can hear it on Youtube Here It's nice to meditate to while reading.
"Whatever thoughts arise, just offer them to the radiance of this moment.
Any idea of yourself, offer it to this radiance. Let it burn away in this radiance.
You are separate from this radiance only because of what you hold on to.
You think this thought is important, this emotion is important, this idea of myself is important, this opinion, this knowledge, this experience that happened before. If you are holding on to these things as something important, then you feel separate from this moment.
But if you offer them to the radiance of this moment, then they burn away in bliss they dissolve into peace; they are free to dissolve back into their true nature.
Do you see that?
A thought is never a thought. A thought is always this peace this consciousness. But in holding on to it, it becomes something else. When you get involved with the content of it, it becomes something else separate from peace.
But it is just peace. It arises by itself and naturally wants to dissolve back into peace.
Have you ever seen a flying fish? They fly out of the ocean. And they are joyful flying out of the ocean but then they dive back into the ocean. It's just for fun.
Don't argue with me about the biology of flying fish. In this instance, in this image, the flying fish jumps out of the ocean for fun and dives back into its home, dissolves back into the ocean.
It's the nature of life. It wants to arise out of consciousness and experience duality and all of its ups and downs and then it wants to dissolve back into the ocean of peace.
But the realization is not just to remain in the ocean 24/7 eyes closed legs crossed dissolved in nothing. But rather, to recognize that a flying fish is never separate from the ocean.
Not intellectually, but to feel it. Every thought every feeling every experience, every action is a movement in bliss.
The most important factor to spiritual awakening is Shakti, the energy that awakens you into enlightenment.
