Tonight's session began with focusingon the difference between mental belief/understanding and experiential Knowing. The importance of clarity in one's speech and in one's understanding was addressed by Shusara and PielleAyan added a personal example of how you can't be in the present moment when an internal story is running. The lower mind is so adept at manipulating situations to serve its own agenda, that it is very common to see seekers who use their spiritual understandings as their justifier for swinging out of the negative states of mind. They do this thinking that their understanding is enough to allow them to rise above the emotional pain that they still have stored within them. PielleAyan shared her personal story of walking through this situation and recognizing the need to go into the pain all the way in order to ultimately see through it. Remember that your energy never lies even though your words often do.
