Vīrya appears second in the list known as the Four Bases of Success. Some translate it as perseverance: the willingness to keep showing up. So essential in our practice, in our lives, and in our times. A practice and dharma talk on this theme, offered in Gaia Houses Online Dharma Hall.
We spend many life moments in a trance of thinking. This meditation awakens the senses through a body scan, and attention to sound. We then rest in the presence that can come alive in the gap between thoughts—the presence that is our true home.
The essence of the spiritual path is realizing, trusting and living from our natural awareness and love. This talk explores the two key pathways that help us awaken from the trance of identifying as a limited, separate self. It includes several guided meditations and a period of questions and response.
