Advanced Essence: The Diamond Guidance
In this course, we will introduce what is called the Diamond Guidance. This is the vehicle of objective consciousness, the guidance towards our true self. With a compassionate attitude towards ourselves and others, and with clear presence, the Diamond Guidance enables us to perceive what is true in every situation.
We will explore how to awaken and strengthen Guidance in ourselves. This includes seeing through the specific obscurations in our minds that veil this jewel of consciousness, and thus the perception of our true identity.
The Diamond Guidance sees without preference. Accessing it allows us to experience the Absolute (the True Nature of reality) and gives us the courage to relate the clarity of the mountaintop to the living market place, bringing the individuated soul to the world. Living a conscious life brings lightness and joy to our soul.
This aspect of Being is obscured from the presence and continuos activity of the Superego (Inner Judge) and it’s judgements, habits, and prejudices. Through self-inquiry we learn to disengage from this activity and remain present in the experience of the moment.
Supported by the alignment of our attention, awareness and energy, the Diamond Guidance starts functioning, revealing “what is” in a direct, simple and impersonal way.
Diamond Guidance sheds its light on every aspect of life through understanding, revelation, and embodiment.
