Before I left for India, I sat with my friend and student, Uyen, in Whale Beach drinking tea and we discussed the teachings of St Francis of Assisi, and some of my teachers of Indian lineage, from America and Japan. They all teach the same thing; that there is one consciousness/God, that we must live with integrity, be of service, and love everyone, be true to our hearts. And we pondered the idea of what it might mean, what it might look like to let go of ALL the paradigms, beliefs and BS that don’t align with the truth that we know ourselves to be, and continually forget.
