ISmile364 - Getting There From Here

Michael discusses how it is that we can carry a practice that allows for us to "get there" in terms of waking up. Among the most necessary approaches to this process is to deconstruct the reality we live in from a personal perspective, at least. This is most easily done by exploring the 5 senses (sight, taste, touch, hearing, and feeling) followed by the 6th sense (Asian teaching points to thought on this sense). The 7th sense involves our sense of time (past and future), the 8th sense involves what we might call the Seer, or the Witness. Even this sense is followed, and held openly by another, 9th sense, although even calling this a "sense," misses the mark. Still, the Path is revealed as this approach unfolds. Michael covers much of this and goes into greater detail on this topic in his book, Awake In This Life.

ISmile362 - Friendship, Fearlessness, and Focus

Among the most important aspects of spiritual work is our sense of community. It can inspire us and keep us focused on the needs of the moment. It can also remind us of how necessary it is to make friends with our fear, thus allowing for our actions to be sourced from an undivided sense of purpose.

ISmile361 - It's About About Recognition Not Creation

So often we find ourselves working to build things that we see as beneficial: a life, a relationship, a home, or even a philosophy that might work to offer us shelter from the chaos of contemporary living. In this talk, Michael offers us a chance to examine this process and consider an alternative. Recognizing what is always, already, in play can shed light on recognition as opposed to creation.

ISmile360 - Tangled Silk

As the poet, Atticuspoints out, we are often very complicated beings. This shows up especially in relationships. While any relationship can be a challenge, our intimate relationships are especially good at helping us uncover our attachments. This is at once a challenge and a gift, in terms of spiritual practice. In this talk, Michael discusses relationships and how they offer us opportunities to integrate spiritual teaching.

ISmile359 – Loss

ISmile358 – Body As Vehicle

It all happens here, in this very body. While it's critical we not get lost in its desires, enlightenment doesn't happen in any other place.

ISmile357 – Opened By Life
