Living as Blue Sky

12/09/12   Bir, Himachal Pradesh, India

From this talk: “We are Blue Sky from the beginning, but with our thinking mind we couldn’t understand. Why? Because our thinking mind can understand only the world of form. Why? Because our thinking mind itself is form.”

Topics covered include remembering one’s original intention, the power of No and Yes, the pitfall of meditating with thinking mind, and Blue Sky, clouds, and identity. With a question and answer period at the end.
