In this talk, Michael addresses what it means to live a life that incorporates Spirit. Issues of the conventional and Ultimate Truths are discussed as well as the ego’s dance on the stage of mind. Pain and fear are seen through the lens of time and we also are pointed in a direction that allows for us to see how the ego itself is totally bound by time. Our Freedom, according to Michael’s talk, is expressed when we let go of our addiction to the movement of ego and then act from a place of stillness. Note: We apologize for the variance in the sound quality. We’re getting closer to getting it right, but the tweaking continues.
