Certainly, there is a place for political correctness. But why is there so much focus upon it today?
We live in ‘The Era of Things’. There are endless incredible things to capture your attention… computer gadgets, amazing cars, beautiful homes, and even limitless perspectives… social views… political stances and dogmas.
Awaken to the level of Vedanta… where no ‘things’ exist… where no ‘things’ matter. Matter is of the relative. Awaken to that which dwells beyond matter.
Do not lose yourself to things. Your relationship with things… with all things… defines the quality of your life. Resting into your Self is the gateway to a healthy relationship with all that is. Fulfillment with anything starts from inside of you. Attitude matters. But more significant than attitude is the state of your being. Culture your self. Proper meditation is the engine that best propels you. Proper discernment provides the wings upon which you fly.
What is discernment, i see it here and there in your blogs, mabey i mist a blog explaing about discernment, but i dont realy knows what it means and it seems importent.

Thanks Bramarshi. This post brought back a potpourri of images and concepts you shared with us in the April California class. In specific the topic of Discernment versus Judgement. Love to see more posts on this topic. Thanks.
An audio of a talk I gave on discernment will be posted in the near future.

It is so hard for me to recognize the moment/situation until after it has passed.
That you recognize it as some point is very good. Trees naturally bend with the wind. Then they spring right back.
Thank you barbara and is there a ebook off it or only a textbook?
No ebook of Unconditioned Spirit. Textbook and Home Study Course with textbook, guidebook, CDs and DVD.
Thank you, Brahmarshi, for the encouraging words!
Thank you Brahmarshi! A very timely reminder!
Brahmarshi, a quote of yours from a recent class: “An all-encompassing embrace prevents fanaticism.”
