In the Tibetan tradition, the process of spiritual transformation is divided into three parts: ground, path, and fruition. The ground is the nature of reality, as it is, consciousness, the absolute—abiding, unchanging, and undisturbed by whether we realize it or not. The path is the process through which we realize the ground experientially, in our own heart and bones, and make it our lived reality. In other words, it’s the way the ground comes to fruition in this very human life.
In the nondual world these days, there seems to be a tendency to collapse the path as if it didn’t exist. Consciousness has always been your very essence, your very own true nature, so why do anything to realize it? After all, you already are it, and any seeking just reinforces the illusion of a separate doer. Yet as long as you haven’t directly experienced the nondual nature of reality for yourself, you won’t be able to free yourself from suffering and confusion.
In this satsang, we’ll talk about the importance of genuine awakening, the stages in which awakening tends to unfold, and what you can do to help make yourself more “awakening prone.” Includes powerful pointers and guided and silent meditations.
