“Who am I really, and where do I fit in the big scheme of things? How much control do I have over what happens to me and the different circumstances that I face in my life?”
Sometimes it is obvious how little control we have when we try to arrange our life to go a certain way, but our plans are thwarted again and again. Circumstances, events, and our relationships may not go the way we would like them to.
Although we have many pleasurable experiences in life, we also experience many inconveniences and distressing situations. This makes it obvious that we are not in complete control and that there are forces more powerful at play than ourselves. This lack of control often causes us frustration, stress, and anxiety.
Although some people may not like to view this world as a source of distress, according to Vedic wisdom the very beginning of a spiritual quest is when we recognise that although I want happiness, this world is not a place of perfect happiness and we question, “Why, along with pleasurable experiences, is there suffering, on both a personal level and in the world in general?”
At our Life Enhancing Workshop, we’ll explore the question of identity and gain a clear understanding of our actual position in life. Understanding these important fundamental spiritual truths will allow us to live a much more harmonious life and learn to be ‘in the world but not of the world’.
Each Life Enhancement Evening will also include practical meditation techniques such as Mantra Breathing, mindfulness, japa and kirtan as well as refreshments to you allow you time to ask questions, socialise and associate with like-minded souls.
27 years ago, I began exploring the ocean of spiritual knowledge contained in the Vedas and it completely and utterly transformed my life. I am now trying to pass on this wonderful gift to others in the hope that they will reap the many benefits that I have. I hope you can join me for this inspiring exploration.
