In tonight’s talk, Michael points out how Spirit shows up on the path to Awakening. First, we uncover the essence of the self. Second, there is an uncovering of the essence of other. And third, the essence of the all uncovers itself. As this process of “uncovery” deepens so too does the Truth within our experience. Questions and comments deal with differing views of the Path; where death fits in to the whole process of seeking; letting go of the letting go; and what grace and ease really looks like.
