In the east, the illusion our ego projects on the world is called samsara, which is nothing but an ephemeral ocean of stories; the mind seeking meaning and purpose, floating endlessly on the rising waves of karmic patterns, yet behind this whole show lies the simple truth of what we are: unconditioned awareness dreaming itself in a myriad of forms awaiting its unveiling.
Once we as a seeming fragment of this awareness take birth in this self-projected reality, we cannot escape the pain of our destined roles. Whether challenging or gratifying, these roles define our life’s journey. The good news is, every role we play can become a tool for us to realize our true nature if we only discover how to utilize our role for cultivating greater awareness.
Unfortunately due to ego identification, instead of utilizing the role, the role utilizes us. We begin to feel like a victim, either despising the role or clinging to it. To truly fulfill and enjoy our worldly role, it is important that we have both a passion for and a detachment to our role. So how do we do this and fulfill our role gracefully?
In today’s show Paula and her guest Rashminder Kaur will talk about how we can shift our perspective from that of a Victim to Fearless, and how you can cultivate passion and detachment to live a full life enjoying the multitude of roles we are called to play.
