“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”
Good ol’ Shakespeare wrote these words, perhaps not knowing how spiritually profound and necessary they would become to the hearts of those who needed to hear it.
Centuries later, Luke Storey was fortunate enough to share this sentiment - and joyfully elaborate upon them - at the world-famous RA MA Institute of Kundalini Yoga in New York City.
On October 27, 2018, Luke led an evening of reflection, growth, and practice at RA MA diving deep into issues like surviving profound loss, sharpening our own spiritual practice, and even dealing with social media trolls.
In this episode, we’ll all get to take part in the magic of that evening in that electrifying space.
TOPICS DISCUSSED ON THIS EPISODE:
How to identify and dissolve your blockages
Surviving and navigating profound loss of a loved one
How to feel love for (and see yourself in) every single person you see
Would you rather experience love or be right?
How Luke dealt with his latest social media troll
A game of hot potato pain
Block ’n’ bless - on Instagram, and in life
Going through the feeling (not avoiding) is the fastest way to get through the feeling
Painting with poop-colored paint: our addiction to finding fault in (and arguing with) the present reality
The inevitably of suffering - and our ability to choose how much we want to suffer
If God is benevolent and kind, why is there so much pain here on Earth?
Releasing your negativity bias
All that’s required to wake up: admitting that you don’t know as much as you think you know
Why we are addicted to the comfort of our own pain
If you can’t find God, guess who moved?
When you’re experiencing grief, you must feel it fully so that you can move past it and still be of service to the folks who are still here
Finding solutions instead of fighting reality
Making space between the Mind and the Thought - and living in that gap
It’s not what’s happening that is making you suffer; it is YOUR OPINION about what is happening that is making you suffer.
The ego is clever, but not wise
If you don’t see God in all, you don’t see God at all. - Yogi Bhajan
