Who are we? We come through life suspecting that we are more than our bodies, thoughts and emotions. Within “spiritual inquiry” we investigate the basic nature of being.
Some of us realize that we are driven by our bodies and emotions, seemingly out of proportion to the experiences of this moment. So we want to know how to live our lives from a place of clarity and truth even when we are experiencing confusion and pain. We want to understand more about ourselves and our relationship to the universe.
We explore the cycle of birth and death, or put in other terms, the entire process of “becoming.” What draws us back repeatedly into experience, whether in this life or in future lives? We’re drawn back as the result of karma, and with an intention to learn. As we investigate our experiences, we begin to understand how we shape the future from our own free will choices and, often, from our blind, habitual reactions. How do we live from the deep aspiration to offer love and not merely the ego’s desire to survive and be safe? Fear will be present. We can not deny it. How do we relate to our fear so it no longer drives us? Can we also see the innate clarity, love and perfection within and allow our voice in the world to reflect this center rather than the fear-based self?
Part of the teaching we offer within “spiritual inquiry” comes from a discarnate energy which calls itself Aaron, channeled by Barbara Brodsky. In many previous lifetimes, Aaron has been a practitioner of many religions, including lifetimes spent as a Buddhist monk and scholar. In his final lifetime he was a Vipassana meditation master in the Theravadin tradition. His present teaching draws from this background, but he also reminds us that, like all of us, he has lived in many bodies, had many shades of skin, and followed many spiritual paths. Aaron is a being of great love, compassion, wisdom and gentle humor. His work is toward the alleviation of suffering. Those who have worked with him find him to be a very wise, compassionate and skillful teacher. We realize the presence of a discarnate teacher may raise questions for some of you. We ask you only to approach Aaron’s teaching with an open mind and see if it speaks to your heart.
