“Love is Trustworthy” – A conversation with Gangaji and Eli

“It really is the commitment to truth. Really both of us said our relationship is about our commitment to truth, and so then that commitment becomes the ground that can bear the painful unbearableness. Hearing it, and not defending against it. That’s my tendency, to say “no no, that’s not right, that’s because, no I didn’t do that”, and to justify and put up some wall against simply receiving it. So that was really the practice that benefitted, certainly benefitted me.”

Eli’s Interview with Pavitar on ‘Love, Life and Laughter’

“Compassion, if it’s only a concept, it’s not strong enough. If it’s an idea of Oh, I should be compassionate, it doesn’t have enough ground to hold you when the tidal waves of your human suffering arise. And so there has to be a deeper realization of who you are. And when that is rooted, compassion is a natural outcome of that.”

Eli on the Shift Network’s “Sacred Awakening Series”

“It is possible, for everyone to wake up in this moment. There is no obstacle. Its possible for you, in this moment, to simply stop. Stop. Stop your mind activity, stop your story of who you are, where you have been, where you come from, and where you are going. That means you stop your past, and you stop your future. Then the myth that you need more time disappears. Then you can investigate for yourself what’s here in this moment. And you can find the truth and wake up. Its possible for everyone to wake up and be free. Everyone. Regardless of your circumstances. My teacher said, a human life is enough. That is all that is required for you to wake up and be free.”

From Fixation to Freedom – What is the Enneagram of Liberation?

Gerhard Bronn, President of the Macquarie University Psychology Society in Sydney Australia asks: What is the Enneagram and where did it come from? How can the Enneagram be used to serve the spiritual awakening process? Are you unique in the way you present the Enneagram for this spiritual awakening process? If you would take this into the context of most psychological settings I feel that they would have a real issue with the concept of non-duality, could you explain this to us? And in what ways can the Enneagram be used in a therapeutic practice or setting?
