During retreat, we have the freedom to watch our defenses and refusals to be with the 'what is' of each moment. We can observe our competitiveness, comparisons, pretenses, anticipation's, expectations and judgments and place them into the fire of awareness. We can live in the understanding and accepting that what "I am, you are," and that what "You are, I am."
LIVING IN THE WORLD
We then bring back to daily life all that we have discovered. Daily living continues the process of retreat to hone and purify our understanding. The realization that all is Consciousness permeates the fabric or our entire life and every situa-tion becomes the opportunity for the ongoing integration of this understanding. Psychological integration and spiritual understanding merge to form the foundation for Self-realization in every moment. Now, living in the world or on retreat become one and the same movement.
