Spiritual Discernment and the felt sense of being

Sunday November 1 we will meet at my office at 46 Riverside Drive in Binghamton at 2 pm for 15 minutes of silent meditation followed by a discussion of the felt sense of being mentioned in the last talk. We will also begin to explore and describe other tools and methods in addition to the felt sense that are helpful in identifying the guidance that is being continuously offered by awareness or life itself. This guidance is always freely given and available at all times. How do we not see it or feel it? This talk will be about learning to accurately recognize this invaluable assistance and discern the difference between my will and thy will at any given moment. 

The next talk after this Sunday will be Sunday December 6 at the same 2 pm time. During this talk we will review Michael Singer's new book The Surrender Experiment.  I mentioned this book in the talk this past Sunday. I want to give everyone some lead time for this discussion so that you have the opportunity to read or listen to the book. Below is the description on Amazon:
"The Surrender Experiment is now a New York Times bestseller! From the author of the New York Times #1 bestseller The Untethered Soul comes the astonishing true-life story about what happens when you just let go. 
A thriving spiritual community on over six hundred acres of pristine forest and meadows in Florida, a cutting-edge software package that transformed the medical practice management industry, a billion-dollar public company whose achievements are archived in the Smithsonian Institution, a book that became a New York Times bestseller and an Oprah favorite, and a massive raid by the FBI that would lead to unfounded accusations by the U.S. government—how could all of this spring from a man who had decided to live alone in the middle of the woods, let go of himself, and embrace a life of solitude? But this man had made a radical decision—one that would unwittingly lead him to both the pinnacle of success and the brink of disaster. 

Michael A. Singer, author of The Untethered Soul, tells the extraordinary story of what happened when, after a deep spiritual awakening, he decided to let go of his personal preferences and simply let life call the shots. As Singer takes you on this great experiment and journey into life’s perfection, the events that transpire will both challenge your deepest assumptions about life and inspire you to look at your own life in a radically different way."
If you are interested in attending the talk this Sunday, please RSVP as space is limited.
