Today, Reggie discusses the narrow world of ego. We typically perceive the world beyond ego as shadows and darkness; however, when we enter the unknown depths of the body through the practice of meditation, we tap into the boundlessness of the universe. When we encounter this vast expanse, we can either take a risk and choose to open to it, or pretend that it does not exist, seeking a temporary sense of security in ignorance. Meditation shows us how to open with trust and gentleness and be with the full gamut of feelings that inevitably arise when we let go of our cherished versions of reality.
This talk was given at the 2007 Meditating with the Body retreat held in Crestone, Colorado. To download more of Reggie’s teachings and to explore a variety of recorded talks and practices to assist you on your spiritual journey, please visit our store.
