This post is part of my spiritual decluttering.
This is one of the introductory talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. Becoming unattached to our thoughts and our desire for pleasure and aversion to pain, is key in the practice of yoga and other spiritual paths.
I appreciate the analogy of a river. When we focus on going with the flow of life and being aware of the banks, but don’t get stuck on either one.
Let today be a day to go with the flow… and to be a kind observer of yourself. Notice when you reach for pleasure or reject the unpleasant. When you notice this, pause, breathe and come back to your Middle Ground. You are on the path.
